I’m looking forward to fishing in Portland, Oregon, when the weather is nice and the Columbia River is warm. Summer fishing in Portland is a lot of fun and full of action!

Summer fishing in Portland is fun and full of action!  We have salmon fishing, steelhead fishing, and walleye fishing, and one of my personal favorites is monster Sturgeon fishing.

Salmon fishing continues into early summer on the Willamette River in downtown Portland and the Columbia River from the Portland airport to Bonneville Dam in the Columbia River Gorge. Regulations permitting, Chinook salmon weighing between 15 and 30 pounds are available. Salmon must be fin clipped to harvest. Marvin’s Guide Service will fish on the Willamette River through June for salmon.

Summer Walleye fishing

Walleye fishing is a popular sport in the Portland area, and one of the best places to fish for walleye is the Columbia River below Bonneville Dam. The dam creates a deep pool that attracts a lot of walleye, and the fishing is usually good. We also do a lot of walleye fishing in the Rufus, Oregon, area, which is just a short drive away on I-84. The fishing is usually good there, too, and it’s a great place to fish, and the weather is beautiful.

The best fishing locations for walleye vary depending on the time of year and water conditions. For example, during the summer months, the best fishing spots are usually in the lower Columbia River. This is because the water is warmer in the lower river, which attracts the walleye. Also, the water is usually more stable in the lower river, which makes it easier to find the walleye.

Sturgeon fishing

If you are looking for a thrill, you should try fishing for monster sturgeon. They can grow to be between six and twelve feet long this time of year. Just keep in mind that all sturgeon fishing is catch-and-release. These fish are very strong and will put up a good fight, so be prepared for a long battle.

The Columbia River is home to giant sturgeon, and Marvin’s Guide Service offers fishing trips to catch them. The exact location of the fishing varies depending on the water flow from the dams, but all sturgeon trips are usually done within an hour of the Portland area in the Columbia River Gorge. Marvin’s Guide Service will give you as much notice as possible for the best opportunities.

Oregon coast fishing

I also have plenty of fishing options on the Oregon coast, from salmon fishing to halibut fishing to rockfish. And let’s not forget my world-renowned crab fishing trips! With over 30 years of experience fishing the Oregon coast, I have a deep understanding of where the fish are biting and what bait works best. I also have access to the best fishing spots on the coast. If you are looking for a great day on the water, I would be happy to hook you up. crab fishing trips!

In the fall, the crab limits are easy to come by, and the crabs are in prime shape. This is the best time of year to go crabbing, and I have you covered with a 27-foot-covered and heated boat for crabbing. My boat is fully equipped with all the gear you need to catch crabs, including traps and bait.
