Re: catfish around portland?
used to fish off of sauvie island all the time when i was in high school. We would catch tons of channels when the current was moving. once the tide hit slack (either low or high) all we would catch were the bull heads. Once the current started moving again, channels everywhere. Not sure if things have changed. I've talked to alot of people who fish out there and most say that it is all bull heads??? Not sure why that would be. Its been about 15 years since i fished there for them. We used to fish at night off of the log rafts using chicken livers. Once in awhile we would fish off of the the boat dock at the mouth of the gilbert river. Always at night, and usually late in summer, i can remember the nights alwyas being really warm. knowing what i know now about fishing, i would go there and use larger peices of cutbait, crappie or perch, and at least a 2/0 hook. That usually keeps the bullheads off for me. you might even get into a sturgeon or two. If you give it a shot, make a post or give me a pm and let me know how it is these days. I have two boys now and would love to know a good spot close.
