Columbia River Salmon Fishing Outfitters

Columbia River Salmon Fishing Outfitters


The Columbia River is perhaps the greatest sport fishing river in the world. Starting point in Astoria Oregon traveling down river to the Hanford Reach in Washington State this river provides our guides year around fishing for salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, walleye, and bass. Our guides are committed to offering to our clients a very diverse lineup of waters to fish throughout the Northwest. The Columbia River provides us with many more options to our year around fishing service.

Buoy 10 – Astoria Oregon Salmon Fishing

Buoy 10 – Astoria Oregon Salmon Fishing

August – September

We head to the legendary Astoria Oregon in August to chase Buoy 10 Fall Chinook and Coho Silvers. Buoy 10, a buoy that actually lies out in the ocean towards the mouth of the Columbia River is considered to be one of the top Salmon fisheries in the Lower 48. In early fall, hundreds of thousands of fish show up from out in the ocean that will stage at the mouth of the Columbia which makes for a sport fisherman’s dream.

These biters give us opportunities to have 20-30 fish days on herring wraps and spinners. The Fall Chinook are the first to arrive to the area in early August. The fish will gorge themselves on bait as they stage here until they’re ready to head to their spawning grounds. We have 3 guides that are hell on these fish and ready to provide an awesome Salmon adventure.

More Information

The silvers show up in late August and will provide solid fishing through the month of September. Talk about some good eating fish! Bright Chrome slabs right out the ocean that makes for some tasty table fare.

This is a very popular fishery that brings fisherman from all over the Country. It can be chaos with boat traffic and letting a guide take to you to the fish is wise. We’ll stay at Buoy 10 and make Astoria our home for six weeks before we head back home for our Snake River Salmon/Steelhead combination package.


We understand the responsibility of taking care of our fishing guests and providing them with a memorable experience. Our company motto More than Fishing is just that. We focus on the entire adventure. Our guides will work hard for our clients and will coach each fisherman into becoming a better one. We can assure that on each trip you will have a Stott’s fishing guide team member as your captain. We don’t contract out other guides from other business and we won’t hook and hand you a fish. It’s our obligation to you!
