In my last blog post, I did an article about Hammond, Oregon, so now I want to talk about its neighboring town, Warrenton Oregon.

Warrenton, Oregon, is another one of my favorite coastal towns where I like to offer my fishing guided trips for salmon, sturgeon and crab.

The town of Warrenton Oregon is a bit bigger than Hammond, with a population of 6,393 as of 2021 (the last data collection I found).

With Hammond and Warrenton only being a few miles apart, they have a lot of similarities, including wildlife that wanders the streets. It is common to see deer and elk feeding in neighbors’ yards and fields.

Be sure to check out Warrenton’s waterfront trail at Skipanon Park on SE 3rd St. The trail is 4.7 miles long and follows the Skipanon River and the Columbia River. It’s an asphalt trail that offers beautiful scenery of the mighty Columbia River.

Along the trail, there are even places where you can cast a line. You never know what you may catch. But when fishing this section of Columbia River, be sure to check the regulations so you know what’s in season, and to keep yourself from getting into trouble.

Hammond and Warrenton share one police department, so the city of Warrenton Oregon will officer patrol both towns.

However, the marina in Warrenton Oregon is bigger, and home to lots of bigger boats like commercial fishermen. And some large charter boats.

Oftentimes at the Warrenton marina, you can find commercial fishing boats selling fresh fish right off their boats, including tuna, salmon and even halibut.

When salmon fishing on the Columbia River, Marvin’s Guide Service will use both the Warrenton and Hammond marinas Location depends on which section of the Columbia I’m going to fish.

Both of these ports get extremality busy during the Buoy 10 salmon fishing season Which typically opens August 1st.

One of my favorite ports to use when fishing Buoy 10 is Hammond Oregon. I keep my boat moored at the Hammond marina.

Warrenton, Oregon, has a few hotels so when fishing  chinook or Coho Salmon with me I highly, recommended to either stay in Warrenton or the general Astoria area.

Be sure to check my list of hotels and motel I have put together.

Be sure to also check out my blog post about Hammond, Oregon.

Here’s a small list of restaurants I put together in Astoria, Hammond and Warrenton that I like. Be sure to check them out.
