Fall run question.

When does the fall run hit the Willamette? My birthday is in the middle of september and I would love to catch a salmon before or on my bday! any tips would be lovely! I have access south of dayton to wheatland ferry!

I know some guys who troll the Willy near the mouth of the Yamhill for Coho, I have no idea if there's bank access but if so you might give there a try. As far as what to use and timing, I'll leave that for someone from the area.

Just go to the coast and hit up tidewater. why wait?

I may be mistaken but I'm pretty sure the fall fish dont make their way into the willamette.

Anymore at least, i haven't heard on anyone fishing the lower willamette for fall fish since the 80's.

Ya the Coho's go over! They go up the Tualatin, Molalla, and Yamhill Rivers. Probably more too. There are no hatchery Coho above the falls though but you can still keep them. Last year it was 3 a day.
