So with the streams and rivers closed till next may. Is there many that are still open to catch and release fly fishing. Just got the new setup and dying to get out there this weekend. I'm in Albany so anywhere from cottage grove to portland suits me. Thanks for any input much appreciated

Check the regs for the Middle Fork Willamette and I think a stretch on the Mckenzie might be open too. The lower Row River might be open too.

Lower McKenzie is open for C&R. Check out Armitage Park, not far off I-5.
