Oregon has it all, Big Walleye and Sturgeon in the Columbia river, Kokanee (25 each limit) lake trout, Quality warm and cold water species, Salmon rivers, offshore Albacore, etc.
They give you an ans sticker when you register your boat and just do random inspections.

My bro was living in Portland from last august till this April. It rained almost every day. He basically fished in pouring rain every time out. I imagine the western Columbia isn't quite that bad-

Lived in Oregon for 18 years (1985-2003) prior to retiring and moving back to western Colorado. You learn to live with the rain. In fact some of the best fishing is on cloudy and rainy days. Many a day on the Deschutes, Metoleus, and other rivers as well as lakes my best results were on overcast days with spots of rain. And for what its worth the fees have gone up substantially so fishing isn't cheap there anymore either. Gotta have a stamp for every variety of fish (well almost every variety) which can get expensive. And talk about loss of access. More streams, rivers, and bodies of water are off limits to the day fisherman than I believe are here in Colorado.

it was not the rain that got to me out in OR, it was the lack of sunshine....see it once every 5-10 days.....NO THANKS!!!

Summers out there were great, btw. Or at least the one I spent out there.

One needs to understand that summer is from July 5th to early/mid October. Other than that every 10 days seeing the sun is an exaggeration. It is more like once every 15 to 20 days.

Once went to the 4th of July celebration at Fort Vancouver (largest display in the PNW) and froze my buns off. Still, overcast days with a bit of rain bring the bwo's out and the steelhead running. What more could you ask for!

Agree, i was giving the state the benefit of doubt. I literally saw the sun from mid Feb to end April maybe 7 times and that is including through the clouds or just by luck, a semi blue bird day.

Hated it...and those light bulbs that they recommend, did little for my attitude from lack of sunshine.

But again the summer I was there I could not imagine a better place. It was a perfect summer. Rarely a cloud to be seen and as I recall no hotter than 85 degrees. Nights were still cool and the view of MT Hood was awesome.
