March, first couple of weeks in April.
Summer and Fall Salmon: June through October. Salmon
season in the ocean will be June 24th - September 4th.
Summer salmon fishing in the river starts June 16th and usually
runs through the end of July, but they often change this fishery
mid year. August marks the opening of world famous Buoy 10
fishing in the lower river. Typically, a million Chinook (King salmon)
pass right in front of Astoria on their annual migration up the
Columbia river. Anglers best chance all year of catching salmon.
Book early because this fishery is very popular.
Sturgeon: June through mid August. Sturgeon fishing in the lower
Columbia river is nearly unbelievable. People get off the boat saying
its the best day they have ever had fishing. Biggest fish, most fish.
Its incredibly fun. Its been catch and release only since 2013.

December. We nearly always limit out with 12 delicious Dungeness
