I'm wondering if anyone knows of any cool spots on the Willamette near Corvallis or even Albany. I work mostly in Linn and Benton Counties and am always looking to fly fish in between jobs. Let me know if you can. Thanks,

Not a very good trout fishing around Corvallis but there is a lot of good smallie fishing. Personally I LOVE fly fishing for smallmouth.

In Albany:

Here is where the Santiam flows into the Willammette. Follow it up and you can find a bunch of places to get at it from various roads.

CombatChuck has a secret spot on the Callipooia he flys trout on. I'm pretty sure I have figured out where it is but I'll let him post it if he likes.. :cool:

Google maps or Google Earth is great for finding spots if you care to take the time!

Its a little far from corvallis but the upper calipooia has a ton of small trout. I usually fish about 5 miles above the "town" of Holley on Upper Calipooia Drive but have caught them as low as the Browsnville park.
