The start to our annual Fall Chinook season has be nothing short of fantastic! We have been down here in the Lower Columbia River fishing the famed Buoy 10 season and it has not disappointed. We have been getting limits of Chinook most days and we are starting to see a bunch of Coho in our catch. We still have Thursday the 31st of August open down here in Astoria. This is our last open date and it is a full open boat.
We also wanted to take this as an opportunity to talk about our upcoming fall seasons. As many of you have heard it is not looking like we will have an opportunity to harvest and fall Steelhead off the Snake or Clearwater Rivers. This is difficult news to swallow, but we want to make sure you know that there are plenty of great fishing opportunities ahead this fall and because of the lack of Steelhead we are extending our Fall Chinook season on the Columbia River.
Starting the 8th of September we will be jumping back on the migration of Fall Chinook up the Columbia and we will be fishing the Columbia River Gorge near Hood River, Oregon. We plan on fishing this area through the 16th of September. These fish in the Columbia Gorge are in great shape as most of them still have more than 100 miles to go before they spawn. We will fish one of a few locations depending on where the best opportunity for fish is at. Our most fished areas of the Gorge are the mouth of the Klickitat, Drano Lake, and the mouth of the Dechutes River. All three locations give you a great chance to take home some great salmon. And the entire Columbia above Bonneville Dam has a limit of two Adult Chinook daily.
We are also planning on extending our Hanford Reach Fall Chinook season through the 22nd of October. This will give us a great extended opportunity to catch these big Chinook as they state near their spawning grounds on the Hanford Reach. We often catch some of our biggest Chinook of the year off the “reach” and fishing for these bruisers in the desert of Eastern Washington is a great experience.
We thank everyone for your continued support of Jones Sport Fishing! And without our great customers living our dream on the water would not be possible.
We had another fantastic day of Chinook Fishing today out of Astoria, OR. We hooked around 20 fish today and kept 5 great Kings. All of our fish today came on pro troll flashers and superbaits, as has been our program for the entire season down here.

Don’t forget we start our Hanford Reach Fall Chinook season in mid September and run all the way through October. Don’t miss this great opportunity to catch some really nice Chinook
Fishing has really picked up down here in Astoria the past few days! This is one of our favorite times of year when we get the opportunity to target ocean fresh fall Chinook and Coho as they make their fist appearance into the Columbia River. We have a few available dates left August 29th and 30th are open for up to 4 anglers and we have 2 seats available on The 19th, 24th, and 27th. Get in touch with us if you want in on this Astoria action.
Also it is looking like we will have another great year chasing big Columbia River Fall Chinook on the Hanford Reach. We still have some great dates open from mid September into early October.
Late last week we wrapped up our Astoria / Buoy 10 fall salmon season. We had a great August out on the coast chasing these amazing fish. The fishing this year overall was very good, but we also had some days that we struggled to get into the fish. All in all this season is one of my favorites and I am already looking forward to next year. We are already taking booking for next August, and as many of you know the best dates for this fishery tend to go fast, so booking early is your best bet to get your preferred dates. Below are many of the pictures we took during this past August, and we thank all our great customers for spending time with us.
If you are looking to get in on our next fishing opportunity then you don’t have to wait long! We start our Hanford Reach Fall Salmon season on the 15th of September. This is your next chance to get a crack at the fish that may have made it past us at Astoria. We fish out of Vernita bridge and are able to put you on all the best salmon holes that this section of river has to offer. This is a diverse and unique fishery where we fish many methods and cover a lot of water through out the day. For more information check out our Hanford Reach information Page .
