Welcome and thank you for
visiting! I am Jeff Keightley and I
would love to take you fishing!
The Oregon coast is a two hour
drive from Portland. For 2016, I
will once again be offering a fish
catch guarantee. On captain Jeff's
If no one in your party catches
fish, the trip is half price!
Latest news: 12/16/15 Now booking bottom fishing and dungeness
crab trips. Crab is open and they are running LARGE this year!
Bottom fishing is also open. 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
My favorite fishery is right around the corner: Spring Chinook
salmon fishing starts in March (February if you are as crazy
hardcore as me). Catching normally gets fairly good by mid
March. Season dates havent been established by fisheries
managers, but you can bet that this page will be updated
immediately after the season is set. Typically, around April 10th is
the last scheduled day (which usually gets extended at least
once). Ah, Springer fishing.......
Ocean Salmon opens in early June (season dates are not yet
established for 2016). Typically, ocean salmon fishing is very
productive and fun! Season dates will be posted here immediately
after fisheries managers announce them.
World famous buoy 10 salmon fishing opens August 1st. Salmon
fishing in the Columbia river during August and September is
normally excellent. Large Chinook (King salmon) and aggressive
Coho salmon make their way up the river by the millions. Its a
good idea to book early for this time of year!
Sturgeon fishing in the lower Columbia river during summer
months is hard to put into words! Incredibly fun! 10 foot and
larger fish are a possibility, 20-70 fish a day! Sturgeon are the
largest freshwater fish in North America and they fight like mad! Im
telling you, eat your wheaties prior to this one! Sturgeon fishing is
catch and release only in the lower Columbia. No retention, no
harvest. Yes fun! Best dates are mid May through mid August.
