Portland/Metro Fishing Report – The mainstem Columbia remains a good option for Chinook salmon with the Bonneville reach remaining a top prospect for trollers working 360° flashers and spinners. We’re still in peak season here, and catches should remain robust for another 2 weeks.

Willamette River coho counts are progressing nicely, with fair catches coming upstream of Willamette Falls where anglers are allowed to catch and keep wild or hatchery coho salmon. Trolling plugs is popular, but casting spinners is another viable option. Target coho at tributary mouths such as the Tualatin and Molalla Rivers.

Clackamas River – Coho are present in good numbers here, anglers stand the best chance at success sooner, rather than later. Casting hardware will become the better option as flows drop.

Sandy River Fishing Report – Avid angler Jeff Stoeger reports, “I hope that everyone had the opportunity to get out and fish over the weekend. There were fresh and some dark fish that were caught as well as a few springers still being caught.

The river is on the low side to float and if you decide to float, make sure to wear waders for you will have to drag your boat or raft over a few places.
