Columbia River Astoria Fishing Guides

Columbia River Astoria Fishing GuidesColumbia River Astoria Salmon Fishing

Our Columbia River Astoria Fishing Guides target the Fall run of Chinook near the towns of Astoria, Oregon and Illwaco, Washington. Fishing from the mouth of the Columbia at Buoy 10 upriver to Tongue Point, this is the first stretch of river that these fish enter and they are dime bright, coming in on each day’s tides. Our Columbia River Astoria Fishing Guides intercept these big, powerful Chinook as they make their way though the channels and sand bars of the Lower Columbia River. Knowing where to be at each stage of the tide is crucial at this fishery and our Columbia River Astoria Fishing Guides are experts at reading the tide and knowing right where to be to stay on top of the hot bite. The Fall Chinook run is the largest of the salmon runs in the Columbia River system, with recent runs hitting near the million fish mark. This makes for some awesome catching! Join our Columbia River Astoria Fishing Guides in August for a trip of a lifetime.

Coho SalmonColumbia River Astoria Fishing Guides

While fishing for Chinook you will also have the ability to catch Coho Salmon as well. These fish are smaller but eat just as well, some say even better than a Chinook. Coho will bite the same baits that we fish for Chinook. Recent years anglers have been able to retain 1 Chinook and 1 Coho OR 2 Coho’s at this fishery.
