Bill Monroe of the Oregonian has about the best pulse on early fishing Spring Chinook fishing as anyone I know. He’s been covering NW fishing and hunting for the Oregonian for a real long time and to boot, he’s a regular at one of the great early season producers on the Willamette.
It’s common place to see our first Willamette River Springer of the year get caught in January, but I’d be lying if it didn’t get the blood running a bit each and every time it happens.
This year’s Willamette River Spring Chinook run is just around the corner. I’ll be running both day and afternoon trips. Day trips will run from 6a until 230. Afternoon trips from 330 until 730.
I can’t wait to get to it. Let me know if you have any questions.
