Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: A very small number of spring Chinook boat anglers continue to work the Willamette for fish and are finding some limited success, mainly down near the head of Multnomah Channel. If you’re seeking that late season fishing opportunity in hopes of one last springer, the area across from the head of the channel or upstream in Oregon City are your best bets. There’s also the possibility of hooking into summer steelhead, mainly near the mouth of the Clackamas River where the cooler water is coming into the Willamette.

Anglers wanting to experience a fast action fishery using light tackle should try some late season shad fishing in the Willamette. The catch and effort for shad this past week by boat and bank anglers had begun to decline some but shad were still being hooked, mainly in Oregon City and Gladstone.

Anglers will also find there are plenty of warm water fishing opportunities on the Willamette for bass and small pan fish, working the rocky shorelines and around areas with structure, particularly near Cedar Island and Milwaukie. Reports indicate the small mouth bass fishing has been very good this spring.

Spring Chinook crossings at the falls have continued into June at a steady rate with partial numbers through June 25th showing over 22,000 adult springers passing. The final winter steelhead counts for spring 2016 sit at 5,778 through May 31, while summer steelhead show partial counts of over 13,000 fish through that June 25th date.

USGS hydrological data for the Willamette River on June 27 shows flows moving into summer levels at 8,160 cfs, the water temperature approaching 70°F , and visibility amazingly clear at 8.8 ft.

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.
