Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: The Willamette is open for hatchery spring Chinook and summer steelhead but fishing for these species is slow. During the month of July, there were 1,307 summer steelhead and 611 spring Chinook crossings counted at Willamette Falls. Coho have yet to make an appearance at the falls.

Warmwater fishing remains the only viable option for anglers in the lower Willamette at this time of year. Look for warmwater species around bridges, pilings, wing dams, and other structures, which can be good spots to find walleye, crappie and bass, which are plentiful in the Willamette.

Further upstream, the section between Albany and Harrisburg is open year-round for trout fishing, which can be very good when flows are cooperating

Hydrological data for the Willamette at Willamette Falls on Aug. 21 showed flows at 7,330 cfs, visibility at 8.3 ft., and a water temperature holding around 73 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.
