FISHING CALENDAR

The fishing calendar below is presented to give you a better idea of typical fishing periods of the Columbia River in Oregon and Washington. These seasons may vary and regulations may cause the seasons to change also. Please call Dave Maroon for up to the minute changes in fisheries and to better plan your next trip. Fishing clients are also not "bound" to the above fishing times and dates. For example, if you want to fish for Salmon in December, and the species is not listed as available that month there is still a good possibility that Salmon fishing can be done in December.

In 2003 there was a run of "Winter Chinook" with some fish running over 30 pounds. This was somewhat rare, but Dave Maroon has a degree in fish biology and has worked on fisheries projects in Alaska, Oregon and California. With his expert knowledge he is more likely to be on top of what is going on and what possibilities for catching any and all types of fish may exist.

Dave Maroon's Fishing Adventures also fishes for Bass and Catfish on the beautiful John day River arm and for Shad on the Columbia River and the Willamette River. Best times for bass and catfish is in June and July and May and June are hot fishing times for Shad runs.
