How clean is the Willamette River? Is it clean enough that you can fish it, in town?

Oregon Fish and Game recommends that you reduce or avoid eating fatty parts of resident species of the lower Willamette River.

Fishing it is no problem especially for salmon and sturgeon.

The Oregon Office of Public Health has a website with fish consuption guidelines for waterbodies throughout the state:

Oregon Fish Consumption Guidelines

Looks like they recommend limited consuption of resident fish caught throughout the mainstem Willamette.
