May and June offer a variety of fishing opportunities. We try to run our guided fishing trips and charters where the fish are and currently that’s Astoria, Portland, and Tillamook.

A November Rain? Our Salmon fishing needs it!

Tillamook Bay’s Wilson and Trask River are ready for big things if we can get some rain. The lack of rain is getting a bit old, but we’ve managed to slug it out this week anyway. Only one day of poor results and several decent days means we’re doing better than most. It pays to […]

Tillamook Bay Salmon Fishing Hold Over Tides Produce

Final Few Days in the Columbia River Gorge

White Salmon, Klickitat and Deschutes River Salmon fishing shines, even through the storm. This past week has continued what’s been a very special run on the Columbia River. Whether the White Salmon, Klickitat, or Deschutes, the fishing has been supberb. Last weeks storm threatened fishing and frankly, I wasn’t sure how the significant pressure changes […]

Significant Rains Bring Significant Opportunities to Tillamook County

Wilson, Trask and Nestucca Rivers get primed for Salmon fishing Wow, what a rain. Although I missed most of it being on the east side fishing Columbia River Salmon at the Deschutes and Klickitat Rivers, the aftermath of this early fall storm was obvious. Tillamook County Rivers all went over their banks creating a waiting […]

The Multi Species Plan and Tillamook Bay Fishing

A State Wide Agenda disguissed as “The Coastal Plan” could hurt Tillamook Bay Fishing. It’s the best collection of Salmon and steelhead fishing rivers (Wilson, Trask and Kilchis, Miami and Tillamook Rivers) meeting up as what’s known as Tillamook Bay. Salmon Trout Steelheader Magazine listed this fishery in it’s Top 10 some years back and […]
