The Fall Chinook are in! Fishing in Astoria Oregon at buoy 10 has been unreal this year! The great news is that we have another three months of awesome fishing for the Fall Salmon in the Columbia River and its tributaries. We will be moving inland to our great fishing spots on the Columbia starting on Sep 6th and then into the tributaries around the 20th of September. The Chinook salmon are running large this year in awesome numbers, so don’t miss out on the chance to catch the fish of a life time!
The Buoy 10 fishery is off to a great start! Catch rates have been extremely high for the first part of August, which was a welcomed surprise by the many anglers who fish this area. There have been limits of kings caught nearly every day in the first two weeks of August, and is only expected to get way better as we head toward the end of the month! Once the fish are inland, we will start targeting them near the cold water tributaries of the Columbia River where they are sure to congregate before heading farther up river. Fall Salmon season last clear into November with tons of opportunity to catch high numbers of fish. Don’t miss out on the fall run of Kings and Coho Salmon this year; after all it is the third largest run in history!
