The Columbia River is arguably the best sport fishing in the entire world and is renowned for its huge runs of Chinook (King) Salmon, Coho (Silver) Salmon and Sockeye Salmon. In fact, there are not many places, if any except the Columbia River, where you can catch Upriver Bright Summer Chinook, Summer Steelhead, Sockeye, and a Trophy Sturgeon all in one day! This year will be no exception as the forecast for 2014 Fall Salmon run expects we should see over 3 million Salmon enter the Columbia River and make their way up to its tributaries. We specialize in catching Columbia River Spring Chinook Salmon (a.k.a Springers), Summer Chinook Salmon, Fall Chinook Salmon (a.k.a King Salmon), and Coho Salmon (a.k.a Silver Salmon).Columbia River Spring Chinook Come join Great NW Rivers Guide Service as we chase the world famous Columbia River Spring Chinook Salmon as they make their way from the Pacific Ocean and up through the Columbia River to above the Bonneville Dam in the months of February through mid-June. These are the most prized fish in the Pacific Northwest because they are considered by most, the most challenging fish to catch, and the best tasting fish on the planet because of their high fat content and sweet, firm red meat. Columbia River Springers average 10-25 pounds. Depending on water conditions, we target these fish by trolling herring with Shortbus Flashers or anchor fishing with bait-wrapped Kwikfish cured with a special blend of Pro-Cure scents. So come aboard and let us teach you how to catch the Pacific Northwest’s most coveted Columbia River Spring Chinook. Columbia River Summer Chinook As the weather warms up, we start targeting the Columbia River Summer Chinook. These fish will test your stamina with hard-hitting takedowns and line-peeling action as they are the hardest fighting salmon pound for pound. We target the Summer Chinook Salmon on anchor fishing with bait-wrapped Kwikfish and custom-tuned spinners. The Summer Chinook are bigger than their Springer cousins averaging 15 to 30 pounds and taste just like a Springer. This is an excellent fishery to get the family out to experience one of the Columbia River’s hottest fish. Buoy 10 Salmon Fishing The infamous Buoy 10 fishery is one that draws anglers from around the globe for the millions of Chinook Salmon and Coho Salmon that return in the fall and Great NW Rivers Guide Service has the experience and skills to make it the Salmon fishing experience you’ll never forget. During August, we fish the Columbia River above the Astoria-Megler Bridge for huge, hard-fighting Fall Chinook Salmon, a.k.a King Salmon and acrobatic Coho Salmon, a.k.a Silver Salmon. This is one fishery you do not want to miss because the Columbia River is stuffed with millions of Chinook and Coho this time of year as they stage for their final push up river. Plus, with the gorgeous sunny days, non-stop action of hard-fighting salmon, and catching your limits of fish, makes these fishing trips an epic fishing experience to remember. Fall King Salmon are the largest salmon averaging 20-40 pounds, with a chance to catch ones even bigger. We will help you reel in this fishery by teaching you the techniques that helped us land hundreds of salmon each year. Seats fill up fast for this fishery, so call us today to take your turn fighting a big Upriver-Bright Chinook Salmon in this world-class fishing experience on the Columbia River.
