Chinook Fishing – April – June

Willamette River below Oregon City, Portland area, Columbia, or North Coast Bays..

Within minutes of downtown Portland, Oregon is blessed with a run of Spring Chinook.  We fish several locations depending on where the fish are biting. Oregon City below the 205 bridge, Downtown Portland, Multnomah Channel and the Columbia River.

We take trips to several coastal bays Tillamook, and Siletz upon request.

April – July  (Season set in spring so call for availability.)

Columbia River June Hogs 

This is a great fishery as the summer chinook flush up the Columbia River. They are called June Hogs because they are generally larger in size than the spring run. This run of Chinook are fun to catch, they fight hard and are excellent eating. We fish several locations from St. Helens to the mouth of the Deschutes River. This is a great time to fish for salmon as we follow their migration up the Columbia River. Season dates change due to run availability, therefore call or watch our site for updates.

August 5 – August 22 –  Dates Fill Quickly – Call Early

Buoy 10, Mouth of the Columbia

This is one our most productive and popular fisheries. The chinook and silvers stage at the mouth of the Columbia River in huge numbers before they make their march to the spawning grounds. These mint bright hard hitting fish are at their apex for size and fight with fish occasionally caught 30 to 40 lbs. range. This fishery books early so get your spots right away. Don’t forget about our late August and early September Coho fishery. We catch and release many chinook which adds to the action of all our Coho Trips.

April 1st – October 15th


The Siletz River is famous for a run of fall Chinook. It is located on the Central Oregon Coast just South of Lincoln City. This April to early October fishery is a gem for large Chinook offering a true feel of tidal beauty on the lower estuary.

We fish the lower tidewater for these hard fighting large strain of fall fish with day trips. We also offer private camping for small trailers, campers, and tents, for a small fee with pre-arranged bookings. This is a great place to fish and camp for several days, perfect for a fun family outing.

Early September – Mid-October


Tillamook Bay traditionally gets great runs of fall Chinook. This incredible fishery starts in mid-September and generally runs until late October. The fall strain of Chinook is larger than the spring strains.

This means hard-hitting, long fights, and all in tidewater with fish coming right out of the Ocean. This productive bay has five famous rivers that feed into it Tillamook, Wilson, Trask, Kilchis, and Miami. This is a must-fish trip for the avid fisherman.
