Buoy 10 and the Astoria, Oregon area of the Columbia River is prime time fishing in the month of August. Fish will enter and exit into the mouth of the Columbia River from the Pacific Ocean on tidal exchanges staging for their final push up river. When this happens there are hundreds of thousands of Fall Chinook and Coho salmon feeding on baitfish fattening up for their long migration up the Columbia river. This makes Salmon fishing smoking hot with limits of Chinook and Coho easy to come by during the month of August.
