Call us to reserve your dates
A little about Buoy 10 salmon fishing: Buoy 10 salmon fishing is the best salmon fishing in the lower 48 and most years can rival Alaska salmon fishing in both size and numbers of salmon. Buoy ten is actually the Columbia River estuary and bouy 10 is the navigational channel marker that signifies the outbound entrance to the Columbia river bar. The buoy 10 area goes from the river mouth upstream imaginary line to a rocky point on the Washington shore crossing to a what is known and Tongue Point on the Oregon shore. This is big water with it being nearly 20 miles long by several miles wide. August is the time for buoy 10 The fishing season opens August 1 but the bulk of the salmon start coming in from the ocean in mid August to early September. The King salmon are the first to arrive followed by the Silver salmon later in August and September. The kings also know as Chinook Salmon can be huge here with 50 pound salmon and even a few 60 pound fish taken each year. The Silvers or Coho as they are also known get large at buoy 10 as well with fish up to and over 20 pounds common. These salmon are very aggressive fish still feeding in bait pushing in fresh from the ocean on the tides. Aggressive fish mean lots of happy fisherman with limits of tasty salmon. The towns of Astoria Oregon and Ilwaco Washington offer many hotels, campgrounds and RV parks to choose from for the thousands of salmon fisherman that show up every August for the annual Buoy 10 salmon fishing fun. The run size for 2011 is supposed to be huge with a very large run of the big King Salmon.
