Wilson River Fishing Report Location: Wilson River by OR Department of Fish & Wildlife Staff
Fall Chinook fishing is slow to fair. There should be fish available throughout the system. Bobber fishing bait, back-bouncing, back-trolling plugs or divers and bait, or casting spinners can all be effective methods. Anglers are reminded the Wilson River is closed to salmon fishing Aug. 1 to Dec. 31, upstream of Jordan Creek (River Mile 21.9).
The first winter steelhead was reported on the Wilson, but it’s still early and fishing is slow. Drift fishing baits or bobber fishing with jigs, beads, or bait are all good techniques.
