Salmon is the fish to catch in Astoria OR
Our expert 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 Astoria Oregon fishing guides intercept these big, powerful Chinook as they make their way through the channels and sand bars of the Lower Columbia River.
