Columbia River Fishing trips in Washington 


 Our Washington Fishing Guides

Washington State is renowned for offering excellent fishing opportunities on the Washington side of the River. Also since the Columbia River flows right through the middle of the state there are significantly more access to the river than on the Oregon side.  Our Washington fishing guides service the Columbia from the mouth at Buoy 10 all the way to the Brewster pool and even at the Border of Idaho at the Snake River.

Washington Spring Chinook Fishing Guides 

On the Washington side Columbia River Spring Chinook start entering the river in early March and can be caught well into July. Our Columbia River Salmon season starts at the mouth of the Columbia in Astoria and Buoy 10. Once these springers move up river we target them at the mouth of the Lewis River then later we head up river to the Bonneville Dam and Drano Lake. April/May is prime-time fishing, with Spring Chinook flooding into the river and thousands of anglers looking to target these spectacular and sought-after fish. As the action dies off in the lower Columbia it’s all about hitting the mouth of the Snake River and The Yakima. As the spring chinook move up river the season begins to wind down in Wenatchee, and finally Pateros and the Brewster pool.

Washington Fall Chinook Fishing Guides

Columbia River Fall Chinook season is the largest runs of the Columbia River Salmon. Chinook start entering the river in early August and can be caught well into October. This fishery provides world-class action and breathtaking scenery. When the Chinook fist head into the river the action begins at the mouth of the Columbia River, where we take part in the Astoria and Buoy 10 fisheries. As the season progresses, the Chinook push up river towards Bonneville Dam where you’ll find us targeting these fish until they mover their way up river to Pasco and Kennewick where the Chinook tend to stack up at the mouth of the Snake River and the Yakima River. When the action dies off we fish the season up to the Brewster pool to cap off the fall Chinook run.
