Buoy 10, is one of Washington and Oregon's most
anticipated and exciting sport fisheries which is set to open
August 1st, with the action really heating up about a week
later. This years run is "fifth best in the past 60 years" with
close to 800,000 Fall Chinook entering the Columbia River. The
combination of Fall Chinook and Coho means there will be over a
million salmon entering the Columbia River for this sports
fishery. Also, don't let anyone tell you differently, size does
matter when it comes to these Hogs, there will be lots of Kings
in the 30lb, 40lb and even 50lb class.
Buoy 10 Salmon Fishing Guides
We start the season in Astoria, Oregon
targeting Kings as they first return to the mouth of the
Columbia River and occasionally picking up Coho. The
action you will experience is fast paced and action
packed as these are aggressive fish putting up the fight
of a lifetime in the open waters of Buoy 10.
Just because the long days of summer fade into fall in
the early days of September does not mean the fishing
will also fade. We will be transitioning to the Cowlitz
and Lewis Rivers (tributaries of the Columbia River) and
these smaller rivers will be stacked with the Kings and
Coho through the month of November. This is a great
opportunity for a hands on fishery with big fish, in
small rivers, on light gear resulting in great and

Fall King is 20 to 25 pounds! It's common to get a 30+.

Fall fishery is the time to target a 40 to 50 pounder!!
Mid-September, we will move into the Cowlitz and Lewis
Rivers to continue our massive harvest of these chrome
bright Kings and Coho salmon. We will be back-bouncing
and side-drifting Salmon eggs primarily to target these
fish. This will be a go-to fishery for sheer numbers of
fish and perfect place to target those 40+ pound Salmon!
