WILLAMETTE RIVER: catch-and-release sturgeon, steelhead, spring Chinook, small and largemouth bassAnglers should confirm access before they go. All Metro Parks and boat ramps are now open but may have modified operations. Check conditions at individual parks on Metros website. State parks and recreation areas appear open.Coho salmon are currently pouring over Willamette Falls and up into the upper river. This is shaping up to be a better than average year. Anglers may keep up to two salmon per day. Anglers should focus their efforts at the mouths of the major tributaries (Molalla, Yamhill, Santiam). The upstream section between Albany and Harrisburg is open year-round for trout fishing, which can be very good when flows are cooperating. Anglers may keep two trout per day. Smallmouth bass also can be a lot of fun to catch and are plentiful between Salem and Corvallis. From Salem downstream there are plenty of largemouth bass in the deeper, quieter sections.The river is ideal for small boats such as canoes and kayaks, but there are enough public access points for bank anglers as well. Consult Oregon Parks and Recreation Department for specific locations. The Willamette often gets overlooked because it is so close. But this river offers convenience, fairly good access and variety.
