Steelhead Counts Looking Good-Town Run Improving

Late June Chrome on the Willamette

If you haven’t already been swinging flies on the Willamette, now is the time to get out there. With hundreds of fish coming over the falls daily and with air temperatures not at peak Summer levels yet, fishing has improved and your chances of hooking into a steelhead through the town stretch are getting better and better as the days go by.

Some of our favorite flies to fish on the Willamette this time of year are the Green Butt Silver Hilton, Morejohn’s Tempest, and the Silveynator. Our best fishing has come swinging in the early mornings and evenings when the light is low; however, fishing a sink tip during the afternoon has been producing too. Also, make sure to check out our half day and full day guided trips for Summer steelhead fishing on the Willamette river.

Get out there and chase some of the hottest steelhead of the Summer!
