Yesterday they brought back 9 keepers and released 20 natives, chinook and coho in the mix, and we even caught a steelhead! We have 6 or 8 hour salmon trips or a 10 hour salmon/bottom fishing combo.

2012 Sport Salmon Seasons Finalized!

Schedule and Salmon Update

Schedule and Salmon Update

Well ODFW couldn’t make up their minds for a while, but we’re sure happy they did and found in our favor! The non-selective salmon season is now September 1-10 ALL DAYS, not just Thurs-Sat like it was before, AND we now have a quota of 5,600 fish instead of 3,000. That season is shaping up to be a really great time if you’re going to be in the area! This week we have 3 spots … Read entire article »
