Columbia River salmon fishing will open up Saturday May 25 2013 and should stay open through June.
This is a great time to do salmon, sturgeon and shad fishing all on the same day. We fish for shad and salmon in the exact same location so this makes it very easy to target both at the same time.
Second-half the day we will take our shad and use them for sturgeon bait! We can catch both monster and keeper size sturgeon, Reminder you can only keep sturgeon on Thursday, Friday and Saturday sturgeon fishing will close from Wauna Powerlines, just up river from Astoria, to Bonneville Dam on June 15! But you may continue to catch and release the monster sturgeon in the off-season!
