August 2023 is around the corner. Do you know what that means? Some of the best salmon fishing Oregon and Washington has to offer is coming to Buoy 10 near Astoria.

Buoy 10 salmon fishing is very popular. People come from around the world to fish here with guides and charters.

Oregon and Washington’s fish and wildlife departments are predicting a great run of Chinook salmon and Coho salmon.

Fisheries managers are forecasting a return of more than 272,000 “upriver bright” fall Chinook salmon, an increase over even last year’s excellent run upriver salmon. These are brightest and best-tasting of the Columbia River’s king salmon.

On top of that, biologists expect even more coho salmon in this year’s runs – a whopping 886,000 silvers!

So that’s why as a guide I’m very excited about the upcoming salmon season, and you should be also.

This is by far my favorite time of year to fish King Salmon on the mouth of the Columbia River.

I actually start fishing for chinook salmon out of Astoria Oregon in the middle of July in the ocean. Then we move into the Buoy 10 area in the Columbia River estuary in August.

By September, the Columbia River estuary will be full of coho salmon. This is some exciting fishing with plenty of fish caught.

Also, in September (and maybe into October) we will drop crab pots on the way out to go fishing. This will only add to your adventure.

I tell you what, it does not get much better fresh salmon and fresh crab.

Call me today and let’s book your Buoy 10 salmon fishing charter trip.

Maybe you just love crab. November is time for crab, you will be in the comfort of my 27-foot covered and heated boat for a guided crab fishing trip. In November, it is very easy to get limits of crab.

The Oregon limit for crab is 12 each. Crab cooking is available right at the marina. Also, the marina can vacuum pack your catch and prepare it to ship.

Since this is the most popular salmon fishery in the Northwest, trips fill up fast. Be sure to call me today at 503-314-5087 and let’s hook you up with salmon and crab.
