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.

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

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.
