How to fish Buoy 10

Trolling is the most popular method of fishing for salmon at Buoy 10. I use a 20- to 24-ounce lead weight and a herring with a flasher. I troll with the tides, which is the recommended technique. For more information about how to fish Buoy 10, click here.

How big are the salmon

The size of the salmon you’ll catch at Buoy 10 varies depending on the species and the time of year. Chinook salmon are the largest, averaging 15 to 25 pounds, but they can reach up to 50 pounds. Coho salmon are smaller, averaging 6 to 15 pounds. During the peak of the run, the Chinook salmon tend to be larger than average, so you might catch a 30-pounder.

Where to meet for a guided salmon fishing trip

When you book a fishing trip with Marvin’s guide service, we’ll meet at the Hammond Marina, which is about 15 minutes from Astoria. We’ll launch our boat from there. The marina has a large parking lot, so you can leave your car and trailer there. If you have a boat, you can launch it at the marina, but be sure to check the tides before you go.

I really like the Hammond Marina because they offer fish processing. Their fish processing includes vacuum-packing your fish and preparing it for shipping. They also offer a variety of other services, including boat moorage and bait. Call big game fishing at Hammond Marina.
