Deep Sea Fishing Astoria Oregon

If you’re looking to fill up the freezer, or if you just want to get spoiled with some hot fishing action, then you need to do some fishing on the Oregon Coast. Venturing out onto the Pacific Ocean brings a peaceful seclusion from hoards of anglers often found on Oregon’s Rivers, and, oftentimes, non-stop fishing action. Oregon’s coastline is home to a variety of fish, but we’re mostly fond of Rockfish and Lingcod. These fish like to cling around deep reefs and rocky outcroppings which provide shelter and an abundance of food. Rockfish and Lingcod are also some of the best tablefare in the Pacific Ocean. Baked, fried, poached, it’s hard to go wrong with these fish. Fishing for Rockfish and Lingcod is a fairly simple affair. If you have done much bass or perch fishing on lakes and ponds, a lot of what we use will look familiar, just on a much larger scale. These fish are aggressive feeders, so bait is generally not necessary. They do live down in some deep water, so heavy jigs are sent down to the ocean floor to entice the toothy Lingcod. Rockfish are attracted to small shrimp flies, which we tie onto the same leader as the Lingcod jig. It is not uncommon to catch two and even three fish at the same time. While out on the ocean, there is a lot of sightseeing to do as well. You can see the coastline of Oregon from the Ocean to get a whole new look at steep cliffs and rock formations. It is uncommon to see whales migrating and dolphins might even swim by for an appearance. We are excited to start offering guided trips for Rockfish, Lingcod and even Halibut this year. Give us a call now to book your trip for some awesome fishing along the Oregon Coast.

Astoria Oregon fishing guide 2014

August is just around the corner; what does that mean, you ask? Salmon fishing! Fall Kings to be exact! Yes, it will be some of Oregon and Washington’s best salmon fishing on the Columbia River. We will be fishing King Salmon from Astoria, Oregon, west to the famous Buoy 10—the end of the Columbia. It is very common to get limits of salmon in August with the average salmon being 25 pounds or bigger.
Also the Columbia River gets a large run of Coho salmon, also known as Sliver salmon, running at the same time as the King Salmon. This makes for a river full of salmon and sometimes you’ll never know what you have at the end of the line.
We fish the lower Columbia River by trolling bait, usually herring, behind the boat. We point the boat with the current and let the bait out, where it spins to entice fish. We’ll be trolling with the current, so we have to move pretty quickly for the bait to move correctly. The nice part about this, though, is that the fish will be moving the other way. When they bite, you’ll know it! The rod will double over into the water and line will be screaming off the reel!
Right across from the boat ramp is Sturgeon Paul’s. Here you can have your fresh salmon vacuum packed and readied for the freezer.
If you are thinking about fishing in August at Astoria’s Buoy 10 area, book now before it is too late, this is a very popular fishery, and days fill up fast.

Buoy 10 salmon season 2012 ends

Buoy 10 season is over for 2012 and, I have to say, for Chinook Salmon it was one of the best years I ever had, As much as I love fishing Buoy 10 I am glad to be home, being away from the family for a month is hard for any fisherman.
