Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: Springer fishing in the lower Willamette is still a bit slow as the water clarity gradually improves. Most of last week and over the weekend visibility was hovering at or below one foot. Improvement began early this week and there were a few more fish caught from the Multnomah Channel up to Oregon City. Catch rates should improve heading into late March and early April as the heart of springer season gets underway.

Daily counts at the Willamette Falls fish ladder continue, with the total passage for winter steelhead through March 23 standing at 3,306. As of the March 23 a total of 54 spring Chinook have passed through the ladder.

For anglers interested in sturgeon fishing, the “catch-and-release” sturgeon fishery remains a decent bet for hooking into fish and finding steady action with the St. Johns area and Milwaukie offering the best chance for success.

Hydrological numbers for the Willamette on March 24 show flows at 18,000 cfs, a water temperature in Oregon City near 52°, and visibility decent near 3.5 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.
