Yes there are a few spring chinook in the rivers. And I also heard it was going to be a good year. As of a week ago. In the Umpqua I've heard of 6 being caught. As for the Rogue only one. Sure those numbers are higher. Theres a slight chance of picking one up from what I understand. Just going to get better and better. They say after this storm system and high water there will be a lot more fish that have made their way into the river systems...Good luck out there!

Actually quite a few fish in the Willamette, will have to wait for it to clear to get after them. The Columbia is kicking out a few but I don't expect great things from that river this year because the season is almost a month before the fish show up. More of that "opportunity" stuff they like to talk about without any chance of us actually hurting a fish.

Fish are being caught every day in the CR and lower willy. Not every boat, but enough to say you wont be wasting you time if you do try.

18# chromer so chrome it had that insane blue hue to it caught on the Columbia this morning. Hellacious day in a 12 foot boat with massive waves but the fish are in. There will be a report with a picture later I'm sure. It's a long haul but I'm gonna have to go back up there Sunday.

They have been catching springers on the lower C for a while now! They're just starting to move up through I-5 and should be in good numbers in about 3 weeks.
Good luck!

MMmm! 18lber! i wonder who caught that one? MMMMmmmm! Yeah lowest willamette and columbia area is producing fish. Not a lot but some for those who really want one bad enough. Lower C is to much of a monkey show for my little boat. In three weeks you wont be abe to fish the I 5 stretch if odfw and burger king have anything in common.

No first hand reports, but I pretty much guarantee fish are being murdered down there.
