Oregon Fish and Wildlife Columbia River fishing reports

COLUMBIA FISHING REPORTS

Weekend Fishing Opportunities:

  • The fall salmon season is open from Buoy 10 upstream to the Oregon/Washington Border above McNary Dam (see Sport Fishing Regulation Updates page for retention details). Beginning November 1, boat angling is prohibited in the gorge between Beacon Rock and Bonneville Dam.
  • The heavy rains washed out most of the lower Columbia River tributaries; however, some lucky anglers still managed to catch a few coho before the water got too muddy.
  • White sturgeon retention is closed but remains an option for catch-and-release fishing.

Salmon, Steelhead and Shad

On the lower Columbia this past weekend there were 27 salmonid boats and nine Oregon bank anglers counted from Bonneville Dam downstream to Tongue Point on Sunday’s (10/26) flight.  Anglers had the best success in the gorge where boat anglers averaged 0.33 Chinook and 0.17 coho caught per boat.  In Troutdale, boat anglers averaged 0.29 coho caught per boat.
