Willamette Bridge was a radical underground newspaper published in Portland, Oregon from June 7, 1968 to June 24, 1971. It was a member of the Underground Press Syndicate and the Liberation News Service. Printed in a tabloid format and initially biweekly, starting in 1969 it appeared on a weekly basis.  It was organized by members of Reed College SDS and its spinoff, the Portland Revolutionary Youth Movement collective. Editors and staffers included Michael Wells, Jimmy Beller and Maurice Isserman. Mike Wells, the paper's founder and main editor, left in 1970, and it was taken over by a collective which put a greater emphasis on radical politics. The paper shut down a year later. After the "Bridge" ended its run as Portland's local underground paper in 1971 it was succeeded by the Portland Scribe.
