In short form, yes. Lotsa places to fish on the island on the C side. Lotsa fish caught there too. And the channel is loaded too.

Nice!wat works out there I'm guessing its a plunkn thing? a lot of the spots there are muddy or beachy and from what I know salmon/steel like those areas so should I stay away from those spots? I'm might try 1 day if not I'll play wit some stergeon!

Ya, plunkerville. Ya, spin n glo. And just look for people. Or walk the bank and look for blood on the beach. Thats where you want to fish.

If you really want to catch some salmon I heard the columbiaq slough is a great spot.

Andy, you can eat any of the retainable Salmon, or Steelhead you catch in the NW rivers. The water may be dirty, but the fish are fine to eat. Do not eat resident species, like Bass, Carp, Pikeminnows, you know...

If I'm not after salmon or steelhead, is there a place to fish for trout, etc. that is safe from pollution on Sauvie?

You can always try Hagg Lake, which has just been stocked this week.

Going to head out there tomorrow morning.
