Buoy 10 update, only a few days left to go!

Today marks the start of our final week chasing Fall Chinook and Coho in the Columbia River estuary for 2020. This has been an awesome season so far, and it has been a pleasure to spend some great days on the water with such great people. Our customers are the absolute best and our business would not be growing without their support.

While we have seen some amazing fishing, this season has also had plenty of challenges. We have had some days where we struggled to get fish only to have our day saved in the 9th inning, and other days that we just couldn’t quite come up with the magic formula. Some years this fishery is difficult and this is one of those years, but despite having to work extra hard for fish this year the payday is seeing a 30 pound black and chrome specimen hit the deck.

With the tides setting up great it’s looking like we will have the opportunity to end our season with a bang. The next few days we get soft tides, and great fishing should follow.

While this season is winding down others are just starting to ramp up! We are beyond excited to get back to our side of the mountains and chase fall chinook and steelhead in our favorite fisheries. September will find us both on the Hanford Reach and at the Confluence of the Snake and Clearwater Rivers. We consider both of these locations to be home waters, and we are so looking forward to this season.

Once fall is officially here and the nighttime temps get crisp, you will know October has arrived. October will find us fishing for fall Chinook and steelhead on two of our favorite rivers. The Clearwater and Snake Rivers in October are two rivers everyone should have a chance to fish. We will be targeting the 1-2 punch while side drifting small baits on light rods for both acrobatic steelhead and hard pulling Fall Chinook.

We still have openings during both September and October, and with access to some of the best guides in the inland northwest we can find a way to get you on the water almost every day.

Buoy 10 is off to a Great Start

Our first day of the 2020 buoy 10 season was a huge success. We started off the day on the Oregon side of the River near Hammond. There was a good bite going but it only lasted about a pass, then we managed to just pick up one here and there, and had all our Chinook by 10 am.

Today our hot combinations were both anchovies, and 3.5 Colorado style spinner. We almost exclusively fish with rotating 360 style flashers. This is just a combination that we have a ton of confidence in, and we just like to roll our program.

This is setting up to be a great, although short season down here, and we are excited to se what happens over the next 13 day. Please stay with us on the journey and hopefully we can provide some insight to this incredible fishery. Look for a video from us soon that goes over our setup, and get the full rundown on what gear is working best for us.

Also don’t forget that even though we are full for this years Buoy 10 season, we do still have openings for our Snake/Clearwater Fall Chinook, and our Snake and Clearwater Steelhead season will be upon us before we know it.

Please let us know in the comments below, or shoot us a message on our social media pages with any questions you might have. We always love to help people be become more effective anglers.

Astoria / Buoy 10 fishing wrap up

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 .  To view our available dates click on the Book Online Now button on our Home Page.

Buoy 10 Salmon

Buoy 10 / Astoria Fishing Report.

We had another great day down here on the Columbia River out of Astoria, Oregon today. The bite was not quite as red hot as yesterday,  but we still managed to come in with a nice pile of fish.

We started our day above the bridge on the Washington side. This bite was not as good as the past few days, but we managed to get a few bites and put one nice fish and a shaker in the net. We found our best bite as the outgoing tide went slack down around the Church hole. This was a short lived bite, but we managed to have a very busy hour. The guys had to get back so we called it an early day.

I still have some openings for 2 people on the 30th, and 31st. That’s Tuesday and Wednesday of next week. These are my last open dates before I call it a season for 2016 at Buoy 10.

We still have openings for Hanford Reach Fall Chinook near the Tri cities, Washington. This is a great fishery with a 3 adult Chinook Limit.  This is a great September and early October fishery.   Click the following link for more information   Hanford Reach Fall Chinook20160823_132905.jpg
