The Willamette River fishery has slowed from recent weeks but the lower Multnomah Channel and the Oregon City reach are still putting out fair numbers of fish. With the mainstem Columbia still open through Sunday, Willamette bound biters will continue to get intercepted until early next week. It won't be long however, until the dogwoods are in bloom, and the best of the springer bite is too.

The mainstem Columbia near Portland has produced sporadic results from the airport reach to Frenchman's Bar near the mouth of the Willamette River. The Columbia will remain open through Sunday, but the best action will remain in the lower reaches downstream of Longview. Some fish are being caught in the gorge too with bank angling on the Washington side quite productive last Monday.

Sandy and Clackamas River anglers are on hiatus right now. Both rivers have growing numbers of wild winter steelhead available, with just a few summer steelhead starting to show. With angler masses in pursuit of Columbia and Willamette spring Chinook, you'll have a lot of the water to yourself if you enjoy catch and release fishing.

Trout fishing is a thing this month and ODF&W has its trout stocking schedule up and ready for study. Go HERE to see how many of Oregon's favorite sportfish are available where.
