Klickitat River Salmon Fishing Beat Down

Could Klickitat River Salmon fishing get any better?

Superlitives really don’t do justice to the fishing that is happening right now at the mouth of the Klickitat River on the Columbia.  BIG numbers and it seems like it’s just getting better.  Adults, jacks and an occassional sturgeon just can’t help themselves with the finally cured gobs of eggs that we’re sending their way.  This is a great fishery that’s creating life long memories everyday.

Klickitat River Salmon fishing should stay good through the middle of October and although I’m booked up, you can either get on my schedule for 2014 or I can get you on with a great guide that runs alot of my overflow trips for me.  Just let me know, I’m here to help!

Looking forward, Tillamook is right around the corner and although many of the early dates are booked, I still have some mid-October and November dates.  Mid October is tidewater time with bobber fishing for #30 pound Salmon being the technique of choice.  I’ll be bebopping around Tillamook County staying on fish from Nehalem, to Tillamook to the confines of the Nestucca.  It’s all 20 minutes from Tillamook which is what makes Tillamook the Mecca that it is.

In November it’s time to move into the rivers as the Wilson, Trask and Nestucca River will see both my power and driftboat.  This can be some awesome fishing as fish blow through the bays and straight into the rivers.  Some people ask what condition these fish are in come November and all I can say is, these are sea lice ridden chromers looking for a home.  Really, I think we only released one fish last year do to coleration.

I’ll have another boat working for me in Tillamook this year, so if I’m booked up, you’ll still be fishing with a top notch guide and top notch equipment.

Thanks for the support!
