I have spent a lot of time on the Willamette river tubing and fishng. It's a long river so many different types of water but it is generally user friendly in the summer and warm enough to swim. Good fishing for trout, steelhead and salmon.

The Willamette meanders from the mountains down through the Willamette Valley and up to Portland. You can fish or boat on it, you can swim or White Water Raft on it. Great vacation place. and there are campgrounds on it too.

There are some nice area for bank fishing this river. The only thing that would make it better is if the bums found somewhere else to live. Way too many of them.

Especially when in the Eugene area. Many trails follow this pastoral flowing river. Either walk, jog or bike your way for hours!

We always love strolling by the Willamette River when we visit Eugene. It is a great place for hiking, kayaking, and having a picnic by the shore. Highly recommended!

One of the gems of the emerald city, I always like to visit the path beside the river and Alton Baker Park when in Eugene, if possible.

We've been exploring this area in the past couple of days, and enjoying the beautiful scenery. There are so many places to visit. One in particular I would recommend is about 25 miles from Eugene--the old-growth grove nature walk that is part of the Willamette...More

Well, I suppose it's easier to review a river than, say, the Pacific Ocean, but it still feels odd. The part of the Willamette that divides Eugene and Springfield is certainly scenic by urban standards. It's natural beauty has not been completely compromised by developers...More
