There are lot’s of places to fish for Chinook salmon on the Willamette River.
I will just talk about a few for now. The First spot I like to Salmon fish is were the Channel comes into the Willamette River. Multnomah Channel. I troll in this area of the River. The water is around 15 to 20 feet deep, I like to bounce the bottom when I fish this area. Early in the season I will be use herring and a flasher.

The next place on the Willamette river I like to fish for salmon is up the river a few miles to downtown Portland Oregon. The water will be 60 feet deep or so in this area so what I like to do here is put on a 10 or 12 oz sinker and then let my line out around 30 feet.  Be surge to try different to find where salmon are ruining at.

I also like to troll 360 flashers with a brads super bait. Don’t be afraid to mix things up and find out what the salmon want each day.

With the Willamette River spring salmon forecast up from 2022 it has me looking forward to a great spring salmon season in 2023.,

Get ready for a super great run of spring Chinook salmon this year,
