Anglers Rejoice: New Fishing Dock in West Linn

ODFW Unveils New Fishing Dock at West Linn

A new fishing dock on the Willamette River in West Linn is now open to the public. Located on the west shore of the Willamette between the Oregon City Arch Bridge and West Linn Paper Company, the dock gives bank fishermen safe access to the Willamette.  From dockside, anglers can now fish for spring chinook, white sturgeon, winter and summer steelhead, and coho salmon.

The new fishing structure  offers anglers an alternative to the Oregon City Wall, which was closed to angling last year. Development of the dock was a cooperative project of ODFW, the City of West Linn, West Linn Paper Company, and Oregon Wildlife Heritage Foundation. It was built and installed by Ken’s Floatation Services, Inc., of Oregon City.

The facility is accessed via a new path built by the West Linn Parks Department adjacent to Territorial Road. The new access point also means that anglers no longer need to enter the West Linn Paper Company mill to access the dock.
