Oversize fishing is in full swing with the arrival of the shad run! The Willamette is producing 4-6 oversize a day. Water temp last week dropped down to 53 degrees F creating a slower bite. As of today June 1st, the water temp went back up 57 degrees F. Keeper fishing has been spotty due to the decline of water temp, but with-in the next week fish should be on the move, and provide plenty of FAST action. With all the recent rain fall, the Willamette is going to be to high for a few days and force efforts onto the Columbia! Shad run is going STRONG on the Willamette and should continue through the month of June. The catch and release fishery in the Willamette and above Bonneville Dam has been OUTSTANDING to say the least! OK here are a few pictures from the last few weeks. Stay DRY and keep your lines TIGHT.
See ya on the WATER!
