Columbia River salmon fishing started today August 1-09.
Fist spot to fish for King Salmon on the Columbia river would be Astoria Oregon.
If you want to fish for the salmon in the Portland area on the Columbia River you will have to wait for the end of August for best fishing.
I like to start fishing the last weekend in August on the Columbia river right Down by the Portland Airport.
I anchor my boat in about 25 to 40 feet of water on the Oregon side.
I use anything from a quickfish to a wobbler.
If you do not have any current then you can troll.
