Fished the Willy near the Sellwood bridge for a few hours in the rain. The water has dropped a bit but is still pretty murky. Got 7 or 8 fish over 2 1/2 hours. All of them around 2 pounds. I didn't notice any damage to any of the fish on their tail fins so I don't think the spawn has gotten underway yet. The fish were quite fiesty though. Soft plastics in bright colors did the trick. 3" senko in chartruese with gold fleck was what I got most of the fish on. Had to fish 'em slow as possible though. A few more warm days and the smallmouth action is really going to pick up.
