Pacific Ocean
During July and August the Salmon gather near the entrance of the Columbia River, feeding aggressively waiting for the right time to begin their long long journey upriver.
Itís not uncommon to have over 1 million Chinook and Silvers just waiting to be caught. Silver Salmon, also known as Coho are plentiful, can weigh up to 20 lbs, and limits are common. These fish are very aggressive feeders and offer some spectacular acrobatic action.

Buoy 10
If itís Chinook Salmon youíre after, Astoria in August will offer you some of the best fishing youíll ever experience. The salmon range in size from 15 to 50 pounds and are excellent fighters. This time of year offers the greatest potential for catching the "trophy" Chinook you've always dreamed of. The runs have been especially good during the last several years and we look forward to another great season.

Spring Chinook fishing starts the season off. The Spring Chinook enter the Columbia River in February and continue thru May. They are considered to be one of the best eating salmon. We start fishing in the lower part of the river in February and continue upriver all the way to Oregon City. There are many 4 and 5 year old fish entering the river at this time, which could give you an opportunity to catch a 30lb+, chrome bright Springer. For your comfort we offer a covered and heated jet boat with top of the line gear.

This area offers many different fishing opportunities almost year around. Shad enter the river by the millions in May and June and offer some fast & fun fishing. With all the Shad in the river, the Oversize Sturgeon fishing this time of year is in full swing. Steelhead and Summer Chinook fishing takes place in June and July and can offer some hot action. The fall Chinook fishing is some of the most consistent and productive fishing we do. These fish stack up below the Dam and offer some great late season action.

Columbia River Sturgeon
Columbia River sturgeon fishing is some of the best sturgeon fishing in the world, and itís done in the spectacular Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area of northwest Oregon. Brad fishes the Bonneville Dam region for sturgeon 10 feet and larger, with some weighing over 500 pounds. Experience the thrill of fighting the largest freshwater game fish in the world, the fight comparable to the mighty blue marlin. Keeper Sturgeon can be caught anywhere from Astoria to Bonneville depending on the time of year. These fish are great fighters and excellent eating, during peak season it is not uncommon to catch 20 to 40 fish a day.
