Winter Steelhead- Jan, Feb, March, April:
This is an incredible time of year in Oregon- so many of our rivers get both hatchery and wild steelhead in them. With so many rivers less than 2 hours away from Portland (and some only minutes away) we have a lot of choices. Those choices allow us to focus on the best fisheries with the best water conditions. Don’t kid yourself, this time of year is not for the faint of heart; rain is a standard and so are long underwear. With proper clothing this time of year is a breeze!
For winter steelhead we guide these waters: Clackamas, Sandy, Wilson, Trask, Nestucca, Nehalem and other secret spots. Our focus on winter fishing starts Jan 1 and is often good through March. On the Clackamas river near Portland the season lasts through April most years.
Spring Trout Fishing- May, June
Trout Fishing on the world famous Deschutes river in central Oregon kicks off in May with the biggest bug hatch of the season- salmon flies! These bugs are up to 3″ long and are like a “big Mac” floating down the river for trout. Aggressive surface action and busy nymph fishing are common this time of year. We focus on multi-day float/camp trips this time of year to get you into the best waters and away from the busy areas of this world famous hatch.
Shad Fishing Fun! June
June is the month for rod bending fun- fly fishing for shad on Oregon’s Willamette river. Shad are great fighting fish and average 2-4 pounds ranging in size from 1-6 lbs making perfect sport for #5 weight fly rods. This trip is more about catching than the “fishing” often averaging dozens of hookups per 4 hour session – fly fishing for shad is perfect for the beginner or the seasoned angler who just wants to have fun! Trips leave from the dock in Oregon City, just minutes from Portland, OR. We specialize in 4 hour sessions.
