The catch and release sturgeon fishing on the Willamette has been good. The water level is very low but it will be coming up with this weeks rain. I have been focusing my time in Oregon City looking for big fish and it is paying off. Noah and Audra joined me for a 1/2 day trip on Sunday. I had high expectations but with the low flows the fish were on the move. We ended rite back in Oregon City and had a few hours of arm burning action. Noah landed several nice fish and caught the biggest fish of his life. Most fish are biting on squid but i anticipate the smelt bite to take off this week with the rising water. The water temp is up to 46 degrees and a few fish are getting some hang time. We did have a 7 footer jump 4 times but i was not fast enough on the camera but i did get another oversize jump. there are more and more springers being caught throughout the lower river and the sea lions are eating a few down in the harbor. End of March it will be go time on this fishery. Here are some pics from this past week. Take care Charlie Foster 503-820-1189

  1. Definitely had a great read on this post. It truly reminded me of an experience I had with an an invention that was related to this, something that can create generators for fishing. I was thinking about inventing a fishing lures that people can use or a concierge service but not sure yet. Love this post though, hope your fishing comes out well!
