Willamette River anglers will be on hold for the near future, their home base is on the rise and dirtying as we speak. When flows drop, the Sultan of Sellwood (John Shmilenko) states, “I feel very confident on the next drop.” That won’t be until the middle of next week.

The Columbia has yet to see a springer by sport angler or by hydropower passage. It’s early and like with steelhead, temperatures dictate migration, and it’s cold out there.

Metro steelheaders are still struggling, especially on the Clackamas River. After a small shot of hatchery steelhead about 10 days ago, the returns have dried up, but upriver migration is hard to gauge in rising flows and dropping water temperatures. There’s still a lot of winter steelhead season to go, but anglers are being realistic.

Jeff Stoeger reports, “Hello All. Well there isn’t much to talk about this week. The Sandy for most of the week was flowing ice the entire river. It was difficult to fish from a boat and from the bank because of all the ice and snow and slippery banks with ice and snow conditions with the weather forecast for warmer weather things will go back to normal. The river went up over 12ft and is on the drop. So best of luck and tight lines.

At least air temperatures are rising; that will bring more fish out of their reluctant state of motivation.
