It's a fact that Salmon fishing here
in the Northwest is World famous. Portland, Oregon is a
fishing capital of the world and you can catch more
Salmon (within a short drive from Portland) than most
places in the world. "We have clients coming here
to catch record size Fall Chinook Salmon from all
around the globe including Canada and Alaska!"

FALL CHINOOK SALMON
Fall Chinook Salmon are the biggest of all the Salmon
that swim up the Columbia river.
The average fish is
20-30 pounds but we get fish in the 40-50 pound range
are very good table fare and fight really hard. This is
a really fun fishery because you never know how big a
fish you are going to hook. The best time of the year
for these big Chinook is mid August - early November.
SPRING CHINOOK SALMON
Spring Chinook Salmon are the best eating fish that run
up the Columbia river. They are fresh out of the ocean
and are full of fight.
I commonly put 2-10 fish in the
boat per trip. Book early because these trips are very
popular. Seasons change from year to year based upon
regulations but generally run Mach - April on the
Columbia river and March - May on the Willamette river.
SUMMER CHINOOK SALMON
Summer Chinook Salmon are a very aggressive
and bigger cousin of the Spring Chinook. Average size is
in the 20 pound range with fish sometimes going to 35
pounds. Dave Maroon combines these trips with Summer
Steelhead in late June through July.
Catching 4 to 15
fish a day is common during this fishery. This makes for
a truly enjoyable day catching both
Salmon! Most of this fishing is done below Bonneville
Dam on the Columbia River.
