The Columbia river and
its tributaries have the largest runs of Salmon and
Steelhead in the lower 48 states.
River fishing for Salmon in our boats is a great
If you own your
own boat and just want to learn some tricks
and spots to fish, I will show them to you.
If you're just looking for a great day on
the water, I can provide that as well. We
use many techniques to help you catch these
hard fighting fish.
Chinook Salmon is a great tasting fish. In
fact it is the best tasting Salmon around.
They enter our rivers in peak numbers from
March through June. Spring Chinook Salmon
range in size from 10 to 30 pounds. We fish
for them on the Columbia and Willamette
rivers from March - May.
We fish Summer Chinook Salmon on the Columbia river
in June, July and August. Sitting in the boat enjoying family and friends,
the sun shining down and the beautiful views of the historic Columbia river
gorge is enough to make you forget everything in life. That is until your
reel starts screaming with a great Salmon dinner on your hook.
The Fall Silver and Chinook Salmon runs starts
early August and run through November. Fishing spinners, back trolling
plugs, and bobber fishing are some of the tools we use to catch these fine
fish. Fall Chinook Salmon range from 15 to 50+ pounds and the silvers (Coho)
will range from 5 to 25 pounds.
Columbia River Salmon Fishing
And It Happens Just

In September and October you will
find us in the calm water of the
Columbia river below Bonneville dam
just out side of Portland. The fall

of September is enough to make
fisherman in Oregon and Alaska say
In 7 days of September 2005 we
hooked almost 200 fish and landed
147 Chinook Salmon. In 2006 we
landed 122 Chinook salmon in 7 days.
This in only 7 days. Wow is right.
20 to 30 Chinook a day is crazy fun.
This fishery is our pride and joy.
Not many other times of the year can
you catch the number of fish we do
per day as we do during the fall
Chinook Salmon fishery in September
This season fills up fast, so make
your reservations as soon as you can
