Portland/Metro Fishing Report – Willamette River spring Chinook success took a dive this week. Tried and true guides working this fishery are packing it up, in hopes of finding greener pastures somewhere else. Sure, there’s still plenty of salmon yet to return and a June – early July fishery is still likely to produce, it’s just likely to get a bit more challenging in the weeks ahead.

Shad are hitting in force in the Oregon City reach, it’s best when the sun is shining and in the early morning as well.

Columbia River anglers are finding good opportunity and mediocre success. Bonneville, particularly on the Washington side of the river, is best, but boaters and Oregon bank anglers are scoring fair results as well. Anglers fishing downstream of the Columbia River Gorge are not finding consistent success. Summer steelhead are rare.

Trout continue to get stocked with some vigor in all areas of the state. Check out the stocking schedule HERE. Henry Hagg Lake got a good stocking recently and boaters did well there this week. Full details on the Willamette River section of our full version.
