Welcome and thank you for
visiting! I am Jeff Keightley and I
would love to take you fishing!
For 2016, I will once again be
offering a fish catch guarantee.
On Captain Jeff's boat only:
If no one in your party catches
fish, the trip is half price!
Latest news: 7/11/16 Ocean salmon fishing has been good. Limits
of salmon are certainly the norm already. Catch and release
Sturgeon fishing is hot! Double and triple headers on giant fish,
every trip. Lots of fish are being caught. The river is yet to
produce the kind of Chinook fishing we saw last year. Temps are
rising and it could be any day now!
Summer and fall salmon seasons on the Columbia River are June
16th through December 31st. There are several regulation
changes during that time (too many to list here), but we are able to
fish for salmon the whole year starting June 16.
Bottom fishing the last few trips on my boat has been "lights out"
action. Easy limits of Sea Bass and quite a few Ling Cod also. Ling
Cod spawn this time of year which gives them more of a territorial
and protective attitude. Sea bass are the most plentiful fish caught
at this fishery, followed by Kelp Greenling (aka sea trout) and least
common, the prize of bottom fishing, Ling Cod. We need calm
ocean conditions for this fishery, when we get them, we SCORE a
bunch of delicious fishes!
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 for this time of year!
Sturgeon fishing in the lower Columbia river during summer
months is hard to put into words! Incredibly fun! 10 foot and
larger fish are a possibility, 20-70 fish a day! Sturgeon are the
largest freshwater fish in North America and they fight like mad!
I'm telling you, eat your wheaties prior to this one! Sturgeon
fishing is catch and release only in the lower Columbia. No
retention, no harvest. Yes fun! Best dates are mid May through
