Heading out to fish the MC this weekend and just wanted to verify that there wasn't anything wonky going on with the salmon regs.... This is what i came up with (and expected) for current Willamette/MC regs.

Willamette River

The Willamette River is open to retention of adipose fin-clipped adult chinook salmon and adipose fin-clipped steelhead seven days a week the entire year, and ODFW is leaving that regulation in place based on an expected return of 104,000 spring chinook, which is comparable to last year. The bag limit on the Willamette below Willamette Falls is two adipose fin-clipped chinook. Above the falls, one additional adipose fin-clipped steelhead may be retained under regulations for the combined salmon/steelhead bag limit.



Anyone know of anything different in effect?

Thanks

Nope. That's it as I see it.

Didn't fish the MC...waaaay to crappy. I hit the main river friday and aside from being a gorgeous day outside...not much happening. hardly any boats out and no one was doing anything i could see. i called it when a 20' tree came close to taking me out.
