2015 Buoy 10 Salmon Season

Buoy 10 King Salmon Season 2015

Every August we flock to the Oregon Coast and settle in for some of the best fishing of the year.  With our Oregon Charter Boat License in hand we're ready to navigate the waters of the lower Columbia River around the Astoria Megler Bridge.  Washington State has had a moratorium on issuing new charter boat licenses since the 1970s which is why we launch from the Oregon side of the Columbia River for this fishery.

On a good day there will be 3,000+ Sport Fishing Boats trolling up and down the waterways between Buoy 10, inside the mouth of the Columbia and Tongue Point, just above the bridge.  We will be there every day with you on board catching chrome bright salmon and living up to the expectations we've set after many years of providing you high quality fishing trips.

Fishing for King and Coho Salmon at Astoria is very productive because the Columbia River and it's tributaries provide 73,000 square miles of available streams to the returning salmon.  This large footprint which includes the Kootenei, Pend Oreille, Spokane, Okanagon, Methow, Umatilla, John Day, Deschutes, White Salmon, Wind, Sandy, Willamette, Lewis and Cowlitz Rivers, mean that literally millions upon millions of fish pass under the Astoria Megler Bridge each year making the Columbia River the NW's Salmon Superhighway.

The 2015 Columbia River Returns for Fall Fish include 940,000 King or Chinook Salmon and 525,000 Coho or Silver Salmon.  These fish are expected to enter the river between July 15th and September 30th, 2015.  And we will be at the gate waiting for them.
