Columbia River fishing report for 9/9/2014

By September 10, 2014Fishing Reports

Fishing on the Columbia River in Astoria Oregon was exactly what we expected with the run forecast we received earlier in the year. Unbelievable! There were absolutely unreal amounts of fish getting caught on a daily basis there! Now the bulk of the fish have entered the Columbia River, and we have already broke two all-time records for the most Fall Chinook over Bonneville Dam. Over 67,000 Fall Chinook went over Bonneville two days in a row! With only 359,000 fish over the dam we still have a long way to go to meet the expectations of the 1.6 million Chinook expected to return. This means we have some even better fishing yet to come! In addition we only have 39,000 of the 900,000 Coho Salmon over Bonneville that will be returning. If you think you too late on getting out and catching high numbers of fish, you’re not. Even more exciting news, is that when the Columbia River slows down, its tributaries heat up. Last year we were blessed with huge fish runs in the tributaries of the Columbia, and this year, their are even more expected to return! The moment we have all been waiting for is finally here, and we still have three more months of the best fishing anyone has ever seen! Call or email asap to participate in this all-time best fishing we are having this year!
