Woodys Northwest Fishing & Fun – Astoria

Experience the spectacular summer Salmon run on the Columbia River with Woodys Northwest Fishing & Fun! This is one of the best places in Oregon to chase Salmon and no one knows it better than Captain Michael Woodward.

He’s been casting his line on the river for years and in that time, he’s discovered the most productive fishing grounds it has to offer. King (Chinook) and Silver (Coho) Salmon are the ultimate catch here in August and September, so if you’re craving serious fishing action and a tasty meal as a result of your hard work, this is the expedition for you.

Come aboard a 21’ Grady White boat with twin 115 HP Yamaha engines and head out to hunt for the biggest Salmon out there. Up to 4 anglers can hit the water on this vessel, and you’ll have quality rods, reels, and tackle to fight your catch, as well a live bait well and outriggers.

Capt. Michael will use his knowledge and onboard navigational electronics to find the best bite. When you catch your daily Salmon limit and arrive back on land, your guide will clean and fillet it for you, if you’d like. This way, you’ll get to enjoy the fruits of your hard work on your plate!

On your side, you should take care of your fishing license, and pack snacks, drinks, food, and sunscreen. Leave everything else in Capt. Michael’s capable hands.

Come with your kids or best angling buddies and explore the incredible Columbia River with Woodys Northwest Fishing & Fun!

I have loved fishing since I was old enough to walk. It's always humbling and amazing to learn new ways of catching fish, and this is one of the reasons I fell in love with it in the first place. I deeply love the Tillamook area and especially the Trask River, which is probably my favorite place to fish. When I take my customers out, I don't look at my watch – I treat every outing as a fun day with friends!
