Bottom fishing is also open. Its one of the most fun and active
fisheries around. Ling cod, sea bass and a variety of other tasty
fish are available. Bottom fishing trips are normally shorter in
duration and depend upon ocean conditions being good. The limit
is 7 fish per person and 2 Ling cod, which do not count toward the 7.
World famous buoy 10 salmon fishing opens August 1st. Salmon
fishing in the Columbia river during August and September is
normally excellent. Large Chinook (King salmon) and aggressive
Coho salmon make their way up the river by the millions. Its a good
idea to book early this time of year!

would love to take you fishing!
The Oregon coast is a two hour
drive from Portland. For 2015, I
will once again be offering a fish
catch guarantee. On captain Jeff's
If no one in your party catches
fish, the trip is half price!
Latest news: 7/1/15 Due to fantastic Chinook counts in the river,
fisheries managers have announced that for the first time in my
experience, the river will remain open to Salmon fishing above the
bridge for the entire month of July!! Fishing is already very good
to excellent for salmon in the ocean. The river is also open to
Salmon fishing and catch and release Sturgeon.
Sturgeon fishing in the lower Columbia river is hot! Sturgeon
fishing is incredibly fun! 10 foot and larger fish are a possibility,
20-70 fish a day! Sturgeon are the largest freshwater fish in North
America, eat your wheaties prior to this one! Sturgeon fishing is
catch and release only. No retention, no harvest. Yes fun!
