Anglers working the lower Willamette are still finding success for spring Chinook with many more to come. Trollers working flashers and spinners in the warming waters are finding some success in the morning, but having to work for success for the rest of the day. There's always a few fish around high tide as well.

The Oregon City area, as well as the middle river is largely void of anglers and biting salmon. Even the shad run seems to be slow to go in what should be a good time for this invasive species in the upper reach. Passage at Willamette Falls remains fairly good.

No changes on the mainstem Columbia, but managers will likely meet on Monday to discuss future opportunities based on an updated run size. Anglers remain focused on the June 16th summer Chinook opener, but that's still a month away. Shad are starting to ascend Bonneville Dam.

Trout continue to get stocked with some vigor in all areas of the state. Check out the stocking schedule HERE.
