West Coast Walleyes
Oregon is Home to Some Fantastic Walleye Fishing Spots

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced walleye angler, there are a number of spots in Oregon where you will be able to enjoy a great and successful walleye fishing trip.

The two most talked about places to fish walleye in Oregon is Columbia River and Brownlee Reservoir although walleye populate the waters of many of the smaller rivers and lakes across the state.

The Columbia River runs through many states, including Oregon and Washington where the walleye fishing is known to be some of the best in the whole of the United Sates. The walleye that can be found here are not only large but in plentiful supply.

Although the current world record walleye was not taken from the Columbia River, the new one is predicted to be. Summer is the best time to come here, when not only is the weather pleasant but the walleye are a nice meaty size. They will spend most of their time staying close to rocky structure, waiting for their prey of small fish.

The impressive vision of the walleye makes them precision hunters even in low light and they use their aggressive nature and speed to overcome the smaller species. Anglers are able to use this aggressive nature to their advantage on the Columbia River with a fishing technique that is becoming more and more popular amongst walleye fishermen.

Power trolling uses an aggressive movement allowing the bait to blend in and behave as the walleye expects it to. This technique requires a lure that is realistic in color, size, shape and movement and is able to reach the depths at which the fish are hiding and waiting. When trolling use fast, jerky movements that imitate the walleye's prey and be sure to let out a lot of line.

Springtime at the Columbia is river is when most of the trophy size walleye are caught but good fishing can be had here all year round. January and February have produced numerous trophy fish over the years although at the time of year it takes a dedicated angler to brave the cold wind and rain.

There are a number of spots along the river to begin your trip and many of them offer guided walleye trips if you'd prefer to be taken directly to the walleye hotspots by someone with local knowledge and experience. Some of these spots along the river include below the John Day Dam, below Bonneville Dam and at numerous places in Portland.

Brownlee Reservoir is located in the Snake River Canyon and is considered to be on of the primary walleye fishing spots in Oregon. Woodhead campground is a popular base for a fishing trip to Brownlee Reservoir and in the middle of June walleye can be caught with simple crankbaits and jigs. Ask locals and staff in the bait shop for tips and advice on known walleye hideouts.
