Lower Section Middle Fork Willamette

Postby Cmac1012 » Wed Apr 25, 2018 12:16 pm

Anyone familiar with the lower section of the middle fork of the willamette, specifically the couple miles down below Dexter dam? Was thinking about doing some springer fishing up there may/june. I know plenty of guys run that section in their drift boats, but don't know if its jet boat friendly. Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance!

I've only run it once in pretty high winter level. I wouldn't think it would go good unless you have a small light boat. They are holding back a lot of water right now so not much to work with. Think only about 13-1500 out of the dam.

Give me a few weeks to recover from the Rogue and myself and Bigcss could probably be convinced to come find out how runnable it is. Passengers always welcome.

I’m always game to explore some new water! I’ve got a 21’ commander with TPI 350 so not necessarily a light boat. I spend most of my time on the Willy between Albany and Eugene and run the Santiam from time to time so skinny water doesn’t bother me. May drive up tmmrw and check it out.
