There aren't too many summers over the dam at Oregon city right now . 2000+ divided between all the tributaries so they are far between. I went last weekend and we did not get anything in 8 hours in the boat. Hardly anyone was fishing for a weekend. But yes, there are some to be had but it is slow now.
Thank you. I'll hit a couple spots after work this week.
I fished below Dexter down to the islands yesterday and have nothing but a lovely 14" trout for my efforts. I did see one fish roll, but I don't know if it was Chinook or steelhead. Based on the water, I'm guessing Steelhead.
Been hitting the Willamette along the bike paths in Eugene lately. Just a few hours at a time. I'm finding lots of small un-clipped trout, if I put on a smaller lure, but still no luck for the big fish. Seen a couple roll though; I believe they were giving me the middle finger, so to speak.
I'm curious about the Umpqua too. I'm pretty new at this so any leads would be much appreciated.
