Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: A few wild winter steelhead have been crossing the falls but in such low numbers that crossings don’t represent much of a fishery. Since the beginning of the year just 299 wild winters have been recorded at ODFW’s fish counting station.

Spring Chinook have yet to make an appearance. The early springers usually start to show up in mid-February, so it won’t be long.

Warmwater fishing remains as a viable option for anglers in the lower Willamette as does catch-and-release white sturgeon fishing, which can be good this time of year.

Farther upstream, the section between Albany and Harrisburg is open year-round for trout fishing, which can be very good when flows are cooperating. Anglers may keep two trout per day.

Hydrological data for the Willamette at Willamette Falls on Jan. 15 showed flows at 53,900 cfs, visibility at less than 1 ft., and a water temperature at 41 degrees.

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.
