Columbia River Fall Fishing

5 happy guys holding up their Columbia River fall salmon caught in Astoria, Oregon.

Fall salmon fishing on the Columbia River keeps getting better. We have fish throughout the river right now, giving us opportunities for anglers of all ages and abilities.

Columbia River Gorge Fall Salmon

The Columbia River Gorge provides some nice Fall Salmon opportunities near the mouth of the Deschutes River and the mouth of Klickitat River. This fishery is my favorite of the year for so many reasons. Although we’re only about an hour east of Portland, the landscape and climate change as we move east of the Cascades. The Columbia River Gorge is well known for its waterfalls, hiking trails, various water sports, and multiple fishing opportunities. Experience a fall day of salmon fishing and create memories with your family or friends.

Astoria Fall Salmon and Crab

2 guys holding their limits of 3 salmon each.

The Buoy 10 fishery is still open, with a 3 fish limit! Chinook and hatchery Coho may be retained in the Columbia River through the rest of the season in Astoria, giving us more opportunities to keep what we catch. Dungeness crab season is here as well, so we’ll drop the crab pots before we start fishing and pick them back up at the end of the day. Fresh salmon and crab…yum!

Portland Area Fall Salmon

Chinook Salmon on the Lewis River

In the Portland area we’re fishing for fall salmon on the Columbia River and the  Lewis River. Fishing has been good, with beautiful fish tugging on the lines. On the Columbia River we can retain Chinook and hatchery Coho. Only hatchery Chinook and Coho can be retained on the Lewis right now, and while we may have to release native Chinook, there are a lot of fish in the river which provides an action-packed day. Beginning October 1st native Chinook can also be retained, making it a very popular fishery in October and November.
