Conditions : WILLAMETTE RIVER: Spring Chinook and shad fishing are over, as spring Chinook and summer steelhead passage at Willamette Falls has slowed to just a straggler or two a day. Through Aug. 10, a total of 24,525 adult spring Chinook and 8,750 summer steelhead had crossed the falls, headed for spawning grounds in the Molalla, Santiam and other upstream tributaries.

Warmwater fishing can be a viable alternative for anglers who want to enjoy the warmer weather in the lower Willamette, Multnomah Channel and surrounding sloughs and still have the possibility of landing some nice fish. Successful warmwater anglers tend to fish around bridges, pilings, wing dams, and other structures, which can be good spots to find warmwater fish.

Hydrological data for the Willamette on Aug. 13 had flows droppping slightly over prior week to 6,600 cfs, the water temperature cooling one degree to 78° F, and visibility clearing to 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.
