Fishing

The lakes on the island provide warm-water varieties of fish such as catfish, perch, and crappie. Due to water levels, fishing is best March through June. The Columbia and Willamette rivers offer salmon and steelhead fishing during open season. Regulations and permits change every year, so check with the Fish and Wildlife website before planning a fishing trip: ODFW Fishing Regulation Updates
