Catches of Willamette River spring Chinook picked up last week, but so did the effort, both significantly. The lower reach of the Multnomah Channel remains the best bet and will likely stay that way until the region gets rain, whenever that happens. Oregon City is yielding some catches, certainly better than the middle river, but as we enter the first of the peak season here, catches should improve.

The Columbia remains open upstream of Bonneville Dam for spring Chinook. Over 500 have bypassed Bonneville and half that over The Dalles Dam so the run is underway and will continue to build. The season upstream of Bonneville is expected to last over two more weeks.

The Sandy and Clackamas are both producing fair numbers of mostly wild, late-run winter steelhead. An occasional summer-run is caught, but no signs of early spring Chinook on either system Both are low and clear, as one might expect.

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.
