With Oregon fish and wildlife saying that the Willamette River is going to have 104,100 spring Chinook this season. I am looking forward to great salmon fishing on the Willamette River. Let me tell you last year we had plenty of action, and expecting it to be good this year also, WOW!!!!
anchor or troll? I will be doing both, for me it all depends on the weather and the speed of the river. If I troll I only troll down river with 6 to 10 oz of lead, I like to troll hearing, I also will do some back trolling in faster water with a jet diver around the Oregon City area.
If we have lot of current I will anchor my boat. I like to use jet divers, let the line out about 50 or 60 feet behind the boat, put the rod in the holder,and then go sit under the top with a heater. When that spring salmon hits the diver, wow your fishing pole is doubled over and the fight is on!
