Astoria offers a variety of fantastic fishing options throughout the year. We’ve added some new ocean experiences this year with the addition of Legion’s Mercy, our 34′ Venture, center-console boat. Between the new boat and our classic sled trips, there are fishing opportunities for everyone. We’ll be keeping you up to speed with current fishing reports and previews of what’s coming up. Right now is the most exciting time of the year with multiple species to target.
So many fish! We’ve had some incredible fishing so far and I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon. The B run of Coho should be heading into freshwater soon. There are still bright Chinook coming in fresh from the ocean. There’s a lot of water at the Buoy 10 fishery, which gives us a lot of opportunities to get on fish. All I can say about fishing lately is, “Wow!” We head out early in the morning and come back in with fish in the box and happy anglers. It’s prime time for fall salmon fishing out of Astoria, but that’s not all. Small tides put everything into play, from salmon to bottom fish, even tuna! All ages and abilities are welcome onboard. It’s go time in Astoria!
Some of the best ocean salmon fishing we’ve had in years, and it keeps getting better. That’s coming from a guy who has spent a lot of time on the water. The Coho are here and if this is a glimpse of what’s ahead for the rest of the season, I’m super stoked!
Action in both the ocean and Columbia River. About 1.5 million fall salmon are expected to head into the river and we’re planning on a long, action-packed season that will easily run into October. It’s the perfect time to check the Buoy 10 salmon fishing box off of your bucket list.
Continues to be excellent with limits every time. Rockfish and ling cod have been keeping the rods (and me) busy. Add in some salmon fishing and you’re in for an incredible experience on Legion’s Mercy, plus a whole lot of fish for the grill and freezer.
Have given us some brief windows of opportunity so far. We got out for our first albacore tuna trip on Legion’s Mercy earlier in August, and it was amazing! With that said, the best is yet to come and the season should run into early October. The action can be fast and furious when we find a school of tuna, making for an experience like no other.
Winding down our trophy sturgeon for the year and already looking forward to next May when we get started again.
