River trout

Looking to do some trout fishing, curious to know which rivers close to Portland I can fish this time of year. I am aware a lot is closed until spring, just wondering if there are other options

The regulations spell it out. I think you are better off there, than trusting any incomplete information you would get as a response.

Clackamas or Sandy; unless you want to drive to a coastal stream (which may all be closed). Check the regs.

Im always confused by the Sandy ‘trout’ portion of the regs.

I guess I understand that steelhead below a certain length are considered trout in streams, but I’m also 99% sure that all ‘trout’ in the Sandy would just be juvenile steelies or possibly... coho smolts.

The clack has cutthroat in it for sure. And while you can fish the Sandy for hatchery trout to retain, it seems that you’d just be killing tiny steelies.

If I am incorrect, I‘m very open to learning that I am. So please anyone, speak up if I am misinformed.
