Fall Salmon

Tillamook Bay/Nehalem Bay/Tillamook Area Rivers

(September 12 - December 30)

In early September big Chinook salmon begin to make their showing in Tillamook Bay. Commonly referred to as Tillamook Hogs, these fish will weight upwards of 20 to 40 pounds each and are the prize of any angler.

Here anglers fish from the comfort of a 24-foot Willie Raptor with Honda Outboard Motors.

Rivers along the Oregon coast begin to see increasing numbers of fall Chinook in October along with the first fall rains. This is the time we break out our change boat to 19' Willie Drift Boat and float productive rivers like the Wilson, Trask, Nehalem, Kilchis & Nestucca.

Winter Steelhead

North Oregon Coast

(December 15 - March 30)

Winter steelhead will put up a fantastic battle, at times leaping far into the air. It's just one of the reasons they are one of Oregon's most sought after fish.

Steelhead fishing trips are provided in our 19-foot Willie drift boat where we float productive rivers like the Wilson, Trask, Nehalem, Kilchis and Nestucca in search of winter steelhead.

Spring Chinook Salmon

Columbia & Willamette Rivers

(April 10 - May 10)

Fishing during the spring doesn't get much better than this, warm days and lots of fish. Add in the chance of hooking a 15 to 30 pound Chinook and you'll wind up with a fantastic trip not soon to be forgotten.

The Willamette and Clackamas rivers turn on for spring Chinook in April with good fishing available through May 10. On the Columbia and Willamette rivers we utilize our 24 foot Willie Raptor boat.

Spring Chinook Salmon

Tillamook Bay

(May 11 - June 30)

Tillamook Bay Springers are the largest of Oregon's Spring Chinook. Landing a 20 to 30 pounder is common. These are truly trophy Chinook.

Fall Salmon

Buoy 10

(August 10 - September 10)

If you're a fair weather fisherman who likes to pull in big fresh-from-the-ocean fish, this is the one for you. Catch the last of Oregon's summer weather with mild days, typically in the 60's and 70's, along with some of the greatest salmon fishing in the northwest.

It's also a wonderful time to enjoy the scenery along Oregon's north coast and the beauty and expanse of the lower Columbia River. This area is often referred to as Buoy 10.

Fishing here can be phenomenal for Chinook and Coho salmon during the fall season, and limits are common.

Summer Chinook Salmon

Nehalem Bay

(July 10 - August 9)

Nehalem Bay Summer Chinook are one of the hardest fighting and best tasting Chinook of the year. Enjoy the stunning beauty of Nehalem Bay while fishing from the comfort of our 24' Willie raptor Jet Boat.
