Fishing for Chinook, Coho, Steelhead, and Sturgeon with Field N Marsh Outfitters and Captain Sean.

We fish the Columbia River and its tributaries from the Bonneville Dam to Buoy 10 near Astoria Oregon where the Columbia River flows into the Pacific Ocean. The Buoy Ten Fishery is one of the hottest spots for catching Salmon anywhere in the world! We catch keeper Sturgeon and trophy Sturgeon from 42' to 60' long. Fishing for Coho Salmon, Silvers, Chinook Salmon, Fall Chinook, and the hard fighting Steelhead during peak times of the year, can really produce some hot action so book your trip early.

   The Columbia River originates in Canada and builds its flow as it winds through beautiful canyons of basalt. The surrounding native vegetation is composed of Cottonwoods, Alder, Ponderosa Pine, Fir, Sage, and shrubs. Thousands of tributaries build the mighty Columbia as it traverses Oregon and Washington. These unique ecosystems offers an excellent spring, summer, and fall fisheries.

Fishing the Columbia River , Willamette River, and Tillamook Bay

   The Columbia River Gorge is a spectacular river canyon cutting the only sea-level route through the Cascade Mountain Range. It's 80 miles long and up to 4,000 feet deep with the north canyon walls in Washington State and the south canyon walls in Oregon State. The Columbia River Gorge is more than a gorgeous, natural wonder. It is also a critical transportation corridor and is home to 100,000+people.

   Spring Salmon enter the Columbia and Willamette River in March and run through May. We troll herring on the incoming tide and anchor on the outgoing tide, running Kwickfish and other various lures. These two methods are very productive catching chrome bright salmon that are only one to two days out of the ocean. These spring salmon are the very best eating fish in the world.

   Buoy 10 is near Astoria Oregon where the Columbia flows into the Pacific Ocean. The Buoy 10 fishery is one of the hottest spots for catching Salmon anywhere in the World! We enthusiastically look forward to this fishery every late summer and fall.

Chinook Salmon

   Of the five species of Pacific salmon, the Chinook and Coho are the most important to anglers. The two are often found in the same waters and pursued in much the same way, but the Chinook is the larger of the two and highly prized among anglers. The Lower Columbia River and Columbia River Gorge is a prime area to target Chinook salmon. When hooked, Chinook like to slug it out, while Coho are acrobatic and quick. Chinook are also known as the King Salmon or Spring Salmon. Chinook Salmon are powerful swimmers that migrate hundreds of miles up northwest rivers to their spawning grounds, and they can grow huge. At the end of a fishing line, Chinooks are absolute brutes - hard-running, stubborn fighters that will give you all the challenge you can handle, and sometimes more. The Columbia River has some of the best fishing in the world. It has the largest runs of salmon and steelhead in the lower 48 states, not to mention the very best sturgeon fishing in the world.

Spring Run Chinook Salmon

   Spring Chinook Salmon fishing on the Columbia River and Willamette River can be some of the most exciting fishing — not to mention some of the best eating around. With lots of muscle and determination to hold out until the fall spawn, Springers are a real kick on light tackle. The best time for Springers is March and May.

Summer Run Chinook Salmon

   Summer Chinook Salmon are best known as "June Hogs." These fish are huge, bright, and strong. Put a 30-50 lb Summer Chinook on the end of the line and it will earn your respect. Hook up one of these beauties in June and July.

Fall Run Chinook Salmon

   The Fall Run Chinook Salmon migrating up the Columbia River are known as "Up-River Brights." These salmon are traveling hundreds of miles upriver, so intercepting them on the Lower Columbia means they are in great shape. These fish average 20 pounds, but it is not uncommon to do battle with a 40 pounder. Best times to catch these “Hogs” are August to October. Throw in a Summer Run Steelhead, or Early Coho and that makes for a fun mixed bag.

Coho Salmon aka Silver Salmon

   The Coho run up the Columbia River starts in August and continues through November. These beautiful fish are chrome bright and a lot of fun. They average 11-14 pounds but an occasional 18-20 pounder will try to take your rod away from you.

Tillamook Bay and the Fall Chinook Salmon

   Fall “Hogs” in Tillamook Bay, a world renowned fishery. We have a special place to stay while on this trip, right on the water!! This is an October to December fishery, maybe get in some crabbing or duck or goose hunting while you are at it, with us on a private island in the bay.

Fishing for White Sturgeon

   Sturgeon is always on tap for Catch & Release on the Lower Columbia River. But Oregon sets seasons for retention of these special prehistoric game fish... White sturgeon is the largest freshwater fish in North America and can weigh over 1,500 pounds, be 20 feet in length, and live for over 100 years. Anadromous white sturgeon most commonly move into large rivers in early spring, and spawn May through June.

   White sturgeon are tough fighters -- so make sure you are ready to do battle. If you like Halibut it’s a sure thing you'll love Sturgeon.

   A significant economic and cultural resource throughout the Northwest, white sturgeon recently became a popular target fishery with major commercial landings in the Columbia River.

Bonneville/Astoria - Columbia River

   The Columbia River has some of the best fishing in the world. It has the largest runs of salmon and steelhead in the lower 48 states, not to mention the very best sturgeon fishing in the world.

   This river offers year round sturgeon fishing. For keeper sturgeon, we fish down at Astoria, Oregon. These saltwater sturgeon are some of the best eating sturgeon there are. If really big fish is your goal, then take a shot at matching your strength up to a 300-pound Sturgeon. These hard-fighting, aerial-performing giants will test even the strongest fisherman.
