Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: Angling activity on the lower Willamette has been slow in the lower Willamette in the aftermath of the health advisory issued by the Oregon Health Authority.

Chinook salmon anglers have moved over to the Columbia and other streams.

Passage counts at Willamette Falls have ended for spring Chinook and switched over to wild fall Chinook. The summer steelhead passage continues however with counts marching on slow but steady; we also had the first coho pass a few days ago. A total of 30,071 adult spring Chinook passed this season while the summer steelhead have reached 22.114 counted up through the Sept. 18 date. Through that same Sept. 18 date 753 coho have also passed.

Monday hydrological data shows the Willamette flows at 8,540 cfs, the water temperature steady near 68°, and visibility still at an astoundingly clear 9.2 feet.

NOTICE: The Oregon Health Authority has issued a public health advisory for the lower Willamette River following tests that showed the presence of toxic blue-green algae. Public health officials recommend that people avoid all contact with Willamette River water through downtown Portland from the Ross Island bridge to the south end of Sauvie Island. Health officials are urging people and pets to avoid all contact with Willamette River water in this area until further notice.

About: - The Willamette offers many warm water fishing opportunities to turn to when salmon or sturgeon are not available. Look for bass, crappie, or bluegill around rocky outcroppings and other structure such as old pilings or fallen trees. The local tackle shops should be able to set you up with the gear you need, as well as provide some expertise on the best places to try.

Misc Info: - Anglers are now allowed to keep up to three coho per day under a new “bonus bag” rule that took effect Sept. 1. Below Willamette Falls, anglers on the Willamette were already permitted under permanent rules to keep two fin-clipped adult salmon or steelhead in any combination. The new “bonus bag” rule allows retention of a third fish, as long as it is a hatchery coho, denoted by a clipped adipose fin.
