Bottom Fishing: January 1 through December 31. We nearly
always limit when conditions allow us to fish the ocean! Sea
bass are most common, also Ling Cod, Kelp Greenling and
Cabezon (Cabezon can only be retained July 1 through
Spring Chinook: May 25th through mid June 15th on
the Columbia River (subject to change). This is the
most difficult local fishery to be successful at, but also
produces the greatest prize in Northwest Sport Fishing.
Spring Chinook start around $50/pound! The best eating
salmon in the world!
Summer and Fall Salmon: June 23rd through October.
Salmon season in the ocean will be June 23rd - September
3rd. 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: Keeper Sturgeon Mondays, Wednesdays and
Saturdays, May 14th through June 4th. Catch and release
May 15th 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!
Dungeness Crab fishing: September, October, November
and December. We nearly always limit out with 12 delicious
Dungeness crab. You will not find better crab anywhere in
the world. Sweet, delicate and incredibly delicious.
