Astoria Fishing Report

4 happy guys with their ocean salmon and bottom fish haul

Astoria offers a variety of fantastic fishing options throughout the year. We’ve added some new ocean experiences 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.

*Current Astoria Fishing Report*

  • We’re counting down the days until the ocean opens for salmon fishing – June 22nd, 2024.

We’re ready to take advantage of some nice days on the ocean to get out for rockfish and ling cod off shore near Seaside and Cannon Beach.  Legion’s Mercy allows us to go where most of the fleet doesn’t go, giving us fishing opportunities beyond salmon fishing out of Astoria. We also know of a sweet bottom fishing spot that’s in the river. We’re already booking trips for 2024, so let us know if you’d like to get on the calendar.

Ocean Salmon Fishing

Last year we had some of the best ocean salmon fishing we’ve had in years. That’s coming from a guy who has spent a lot of time on the water. With multiple boats that can handle ocean fishing, we had more opportunities than many of the guides out there. Adding Legion’s Mercy to the fleet has just increased our options. I’m already super stoked for next season!

Buoy 10 Salmon Fishing

Action in both the ocean and Columbia River. About 1.5 million fall salmon will be heading into the river, giving us a long, action-packed season that will run into October. It’s the perfect time to scheduled this year’s trip to check the Buoy 10 salmon fishing box off of your bucket list.

Astoria Bottom Fish

We’ll be heading out to bottom fish once the ocean salmon season opens on  June 22nd. Rockfish and ling cod will keep 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.

Astoria Tuna Fishing

Legion’s Mercy will be ready to head out for albacore tuna fishing beginning in late July. We’re already looking forward to the 2024 season. The action can be fast and furious when we find a school of tuna, making for an experience like no other.

Astoria Sturgeon Fishing

Getting ready to gear up for our 2024 trophy sturgeon. Fish will begin arriving in the estuary in late May, and we’ll start chasing monster fish in June. Nowhere else in the world has more sturgeon than Astoria in July and it’s the perfect time to test your mettle against some oversized fish.
