Once Buoy 10 / Astoria Oregon salmon fishing start to slow down, STS will follow the run of salmon up the Columbia River in the Fall. STS actually catches more fish in September, October, and November than all of the other months combined. Columbia River Salmon Fishing is by far the most productive fishery that STS fishes. It’s not uncommon to have two or more salmon on at the same time during this time of year. Due to the size of the fall run and a larger daily catch limit makes this fishery better that than some of the earlier season fisheries. This is definitely STS’s favorite time to fish; steady action and the easier fishing conditions makes this fishery ideal for everyone.
Starting with wobbler fishing at the mouth of the Cowlitz, Longveiw or Kalama area. Anchoring / back trolling plugs at the Bonneville Dam or hover fishing eggs and trolling at the mouth of the Deschutes , White Salmon or the Klickitat River. A lot of parents like to take their children fishing during this time of year because of the nice weather, the fish are plentiful, and our customers get the opportunity to feel the bite while holding the rod, being able to make the hook set on the fish, reeling the Salmon in and not mention that salmon fishing is a blast.
Lets not forget about salmon fishing around Tillamook County and Nehalem Bay!!! Tillamook county is a mecca Fall Chinook Salmon Fishery!!! Tillamook Bay fishing is up there on the list with Astoria / Buoy 10 fishing. You have Tillamook Bay Fishing, which is a trolling fishery very similar to Buoy 10. You also have Nehalem Bay, which is a short drive north from Tillamook. Nehalem Bay Salmon fishing isn’t as popular as Tillamook Bay, but the fishing is just as good or if not better. Once the rains hit usually mid October we will start fishing the rivers around Tillamook. These fisheries are drift boat salmon trips. There are 3 go to rivers that produce great fall Chinook salmon; the Nestucca River, Trask River and the Wilson River. These three rivers are major producers during October and November. If the these three rivers become unfishable due to rain there is the Kilchis River, which usually becomes very fish able when all other rivers are blown out.
