Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: Fishing conditions are looking pretty good on the lower Willamette with decent water levels and fairly good turbidity numbers for mid-November. We’re in somewhat of an in-between time right now as coho numbers dwindle while winter steelhead are just beginning to move in. The Thanksgiving weekend has always been the traditional kick-off date for winter steelhead anglers, in particular down at the Meldrum Bar bank fishery.

Coho are still to moving into the system, but in very low numbers as the run dwindles down. Adult crossings at Willamette Falls as of Nov. 12th sit at 2,410 coho with a final tally of 3,894 summer steelhead. Summer steelhead counts ended October 31 and winter steelhead numbers commenced Nov. 1. The winter steelhead passage count is way too early to give much consideration as it sits at 28 total fish for passage through Nov. 12th. Let’s give it another couple weeks before really looking at it.

Hydrological numbers for the Willamette on Nov. 16 show flows up to 10,700 cfs, a water temperature in Oregon City down near 49°, and visibility reading 3.8 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.
