River flows at Mayfield Dam are approximately 6,540 cubic feet per second on Monday, March 15, 2021. Water visibility is 9 feet and the water temperature is 42.3 F. River flows could change at any time so boaters and anglers should remain alert for this possibility.
This concludes the Cowlitz River fishing report
Oregon walleye fishing guides are currently offering Columbia River walleye fishing trips in some sections of the main stem but the weather is not ideal if you’re not interested in fishing during cold weather conditions.
