Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: Coho season is now open on the Willamette and are moving over the falls in good numbers. Anglers fishing above the falls should be trying areas near the mouth of Willamette tributaries such as the Molalla, Tualatin, or Yamhill rivers. Hooking into coho below the falls can be very difficult except perhaps near the mouth of the Clackamas River in Oregon City. Coho passage makes up the bulk of fish crossings at Willamette Falls, with smaller numbers of summer steelhead and wild fall Chinook also moving into the upper river. Coho crossings over the past days have begun to decline a bit but the overall numbers are still very good. Total coho passage through October 9 stands at 13,617. Steelhead crossings are showing some decline and typically number about 10 fish a day, give or take, with a total of 22,720 crossings as of Oct. 9.

Hydrological data as of October 20 shows the Willamette flows at 12,000 cfs, the water temperature near 60°, and visibility still fairly clear at 6.0 feet.

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.
