Bottom fishing trips are currently available. Its one of the most fun
and active fisheries around. Ling cod, sea bass and a variety of
other tasty fish are available. Bottom fishing trips are normally
shorter in duration and depend upon ocean conditions being good.
The limit is 7 fish per person and 2 Ling cod, which do not count
toward the 7.
Crab fishing is open, but poor in the river this season. Expectations
should be lowered and the experience and crab must be valued
highly, or this trip just isn't worth it right now. Im willing to do the
trip, just dont expect limits of crab.
The ocean is closed to salmon fishing. It reopens in June. We are
expecting another banner year of Salmon fishing on the lower
Columbia and Pacific ocean, book early for the best dates. Thank
you for visiting.

Welcome and thank you for visiting! I am Jeff Keightley
and I would love to take you fishing! If you are planning
a trip to the Portland area or the Oregon Coast, give me
a call, shoot me a text or an email! For 2015, I will once
again be offering a fish catch guarantee. On captain
Jeff's boat only: If no one in your party catches fish,
the trip is half price!
Latest news: 4/30/15 Fisheries managers have announced a 2 day
opener, Saturday and Sunday, May 1st and 2nd for Columbia River
spring Chinook salmon. Seats are limited. If you are interested in
this fishery, dont hesitate to contact me.
2015 Oregon ocean salmon season: May 30- September 30. Ocean
salmon fishing is normally excellent all season. The river is
currently closed to Salmon fishing, it is likely to reopen sometime
in May. Unfortunately, we will not know of an opener for sure, until
just before it happens. You can book a trip with me for any date in
May and if its not open, I will be happy to take you bottom fishing
instead (if the ocean is flat), Sturgeon fishing, or refund your
deposit or reschedule you to a summer salmon or fall salmon trip
