We start off our Spring Chinook season around the last week of March in the Portland, Oregon or Vancouver, Washington area!

We mostly target the Columbia River, but we will also fish the Willamette. March-June, we target Spring Chinook starting on the Columbia River near Portland and then follow the fish up river to the Columbia Gorge, John Day Dam, and ending up on Snake River around May.

These are the Kobe Beef of the Salmon world. In our opinion, no other salmon species are as good on the table as Columbia River Spring Chinook. Most Spring Chinook average between 10-15lbs with fish over 20lbs being considered large!
