Fishing the Columbia River!
The Columbia River has some of the best fishing in the world. It has the largest runs of salmon and steelhead in the lower 48 states, not to mention the very best sturgeon fishing in the world.
This river offers year round sturgeon fishing. For keeper sturgeon, we fish down at Astoria, Oregon. These saltwater sturgeon are some of the best eating sturgeon there are.
For trophy sturgeon, we fish up at the Boneville Dam when the shad start running. We start by catching the shad to use as bait. We'll catch 40 to 60 shad in the first hour using light tackle gear. We then move into the deeper water using heavy gear and whole shads for bait. Using this method guarantees you the biggest fish of a lifetime.
Spring Salmon enter the Columbia River in March and run through May. We troll herring on the incoming tide and anchor on the outgoing tide, running kwikfish. These two methods are very productive catching chrome bright salmon that are only one to two days out of the ocean. These spring salmon are the very best eating fish in the world.
We fish the Columbia River and its tributaries all the way from Bonneville Dam to Buoy 10 near Astoria Oregon where the Columbia flows into the Pacific Ocean.
Fishing for Coho Salmon, Silvers, Chinook Salmon and Fall Chinook and the hard fighting Steelhead during peak times of the year can really produce some hot action so book your trip early for the best times.
