Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: Coho have started moving into the river, although in smaller numbers than usual for this time of year. Anglers are still waiting for decent rain to move into the area and when it does the avid coho anglers should start fishing the Meldrum Bar and Gladstone areas near the mouth of the Clackamas River.

The same scenario does not apply for summer steelhead as the overall count on summers continues at a somewhat dismal number, sitting at 3,686 through Oct. 2. Coho passage has begun but it’s early to pay close attention to those numbers, which hit 562 on Sept. 27.

Hydrological numbers for the Willamette on Sept. 29 show up slightly to 6,560 cfs, a water temperature in Oregon City of 63°, and visibility at 8.7 ft.

The Middle Fork Willamette River above Hills Creek Reservoir is open to catch-and-release fishing for trout through Oct. 31. This reach of river is not stocked, although there may be some adipose fin-clipped trout originating from the reservoir available for harvest in the lower river reach. Gear use is limited to flies and lures.

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.
