The Columbia River has one the largest Salmon runs in the lower 48 whether you're looking for the hard fighting Chinook or the aggressive and extremely active Coho Salmon. Columbia River Sport Fishing will take you on the salmon fishing trip of a life time.
Bret starts salmon fishing in March along the Columbia River as Spring Chinook start their migration up the Columbia River. The Spring Chinook are the highest quality Salmon to enter the Columbia River system because they don't spawn until fall. These Salmon have to pack extra fat to keep them alive in the fresh water. This makes them the finest eating Salmon you will ever taste.
As spring Salmon fishing start to slow down, Bret moves off the Columbia River and heads to one of the local tributaries where he is able to target these Salmon though the first part of June.
Columbia River Chinook starts returning in good numbers again in August. This time of year is when you have a chance at the big Kings, some exceeding 40 even 50 pounds.
