We are located in Gladstone,
Oregon and do much of our fishing within an hours drive of Portland. We also
pursue many other productive fisheries on the Columbia and Willamette
Having two very productive rivers in Portland's backyard, the Columbia River
and Willamette River, we have year-round fishing for a number of species
which include salmon, sturgeon and American shad. All of these
fisheries are only minutes form downtown Portland.
Astoria Buoy 10:
Just 90 miles west of Portland is where the Columbia River enters the
Pacific Ocean. Beginning in early August and running through early September
500,000 to over 1,000,000 Chinook and Coho salmon enter the Columbia. This
can be some of the best salmon fishing anywhere.
Tillamook Bay and Pacific
Located 80 miles west of Portland (90 minutes) Tillamook Bay provides a
premier fishery for huge King salmon, some of the largest south of Alaska.
These fish are the legendary Tillamook Hawgs, weighing from 25 to over 50
A total of five rivers enter
the waters Tillamook Bay, each of which supports a healthy return of Chinook
salmon, Coho salmon and steelhead. There is a very good chance that you
could catch the largest salmon of your life at this location.
American Shad (2-4 lbs):
Early May through early July - Columbia River.
There is no limit on these
feisty 2 to 4 pound fish. Per client catches of 30 to 50 fish a day are
common. Shad are a very bony fish, but some people like to can them. Most
use them for crab bait or just enjoy a fun day of catch and release.
Millions of shad pass over Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River each year
beginning in May. A very fun fishery for kids and adults.
A Fishing License as well as applicable tags should be obtained prior to your
Oregon fishing license
