Yep. What they said. Better check your reg book before you head out. And I've seen good reports from the Willy.

You seem to be one of the lucky ones fortunate enough to fish when the rest of us are unable to. Good luck brother.

Usually refers to the Willamette River as it runs through Portland up to the falls at Oregon City.

Which has pollution warnings from the rain and runoff. I wouldn't fish the Willamette right now, but that's just me. The fish have to fight through raw sewage and industrial overflow just to get up river.

On a lighter note... the Columbia's been hitting strong out west. I was in Rainier this past weekend and contending with at least 200 people for a spot on the beach. The nice part?? LOTS of bells ringin' all day long.
