Catches in the Willamette River downstream of Willamette Falls last week:

Multnomah Channel and Kelley Point to St. Johns Bridge boats — 1,119 anglers with 77 spring chinook kept and eight released (91% mark rate). St. Johns Bridge to Lake Oswego-Oak Grove railroad bridge boats — 799 anglers with 56 kept and eight released (88% mark rate). Lake Oswego-Oak Grove railroad bridge to Willamette Falls deadline boats — 784 anglers with 26 kept (100% mark rate). Lake Oswego-Oak Grove railroad bridge to Willamette Falls deadline bank — 3,012 rods with 162 kept and 16 released (91% mark rate).

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife reports high and muddy water put a damper on the bite.
