I keep reading about your luck at riverside, but on google maps the park looks really small.

are the best holes upstream from the boat ramp?

The park reaches all the way up to the second turn in the River above the launch. The top side,above the first corner is the most productive holding water for Summer Steelhead.

I live in lower NE Portland so its not too far for me, but Riverside is quite a bit closer than McIver

Haven't fished up at McIver before, would you mind describing the location of the various chinook holes? and is the best bite at daybreak? Shrimp cocktail is your preffered offering right?
Thanks

word, I Might be at Riverside on Sunday.
I went yesterday from about 6pm till dark, but I didn't even get a bite.

I met someone named Ben in the parking lot who had been fishing there all day with a couple folks, they got skunked too
there was a dude in a boat who came down stream to our hole, turned his boat into the rapids and immediately caught a large fish.
he got the fish to thrash on the surface for a moment and then he lost it.
