Although a late-season surge of coho passed by Bonneville earlier this week, mainstem Columbia sportfisheries are really on hiatus until spring Chinook begin entering in fishable numbers around late March. Motivated anglers should be able to intercept some of those coho at the mouth of the Klickitat this weekend if weather allows. Winds are always a wildcard this time of year and temperatures are often frigid. Dress appropriately.

Sandy and Clackamas River anglers are about to call it quits. These rivers have been high for most of the week, giving hatchery fish ample opportunity to make it back to their respective hatcheries. It'll largely be a wild fish show from here. Winter steelhead, assuming they make a viable showing, won't nose into metro watersheds for another few weeks, in catchable numbers anyway.

The trout stocking schedule still offers hope for metro anglers willing to brave more inclement conditions. The department of Fish and Wildlife is prepping for Black Friday, offering up a handful of opportunities for quality trout this time of year. Since nobody goes to shopping malls anymore, it's a great place to spend the day if the weather cooperates.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife just announced their FREE FISHING "Weekend," Friday and Saturday, November 26 - 27 actually, will offer up some great opportunities for trout, some coho, but especially crab as tides look favorable. If you dress appropriately, it should be a fun time. More details HERE.
