Here you go

http://waterdata.usgs.gov/usa/nwis/uv?site_no=14211720

This is the Morrison St. Gauge.

If you lose it again simply type in USGS Portland and it will come up for you

For those just discovering this source, you can usually catch fish until turbidity reaches 12 then not so good (results may vary).  You can fish any time you are brave enough.... regardless of turbidity :facepalm:   :bigshock:

 Thank You  SF  this is the one I wanted. All the parameters look good for going fishing. The temp could come up a bit. And I will be there.

Actually the Willamette Brown Trout (an Endangered Species Act (ESA) listed fishery by the way) is best when the spring thunder storms come through.  The river is in good shape during those time, weather not too bad, and if you know where the spots are, you will have some great fishing.  Unfortunately the city has spent about $1.7 billion destroying their spawning habitat thus the ESA listing.   :whistle:

This species once regularly appeared in the Willamette as far upstream as Eugene.  However, urban efforts have destroyed their habitat to a very few spots in the Portland area and they are dwindling.
