Top Fishing Charters in Garibaldi

If variety is the spice of life for you when it comes to angling, then Oregon’s Garibaldi is calling your name. This port town is located on the edge of the Beaver State’s northern coast, right at the meeting point of Tillamook Bay’s protected waters and the Pacific Ocean. With bays, rivers, and the open ocean on offer, it makes for one incredible fishery! Come discover it for yourself by hopping aboard a Garibaldi fishing charter.
You have the chance to hook into everything the Oregon Coast has to offer here, from exciting game fish to delicious table fare. If you’re looking to experience some of the Pacific Ocean’s iconic deep sea fishing opportunities, head offshore and you could encounter anything from Ocean Salmon, to Albacore Tuna, to Lingcod, to Halibut. The bays near Garibaldi, most notably Tillamook Bay, offer up Halibut, Salmon, Lingcod, and some excellent crabbing action.
There’s also some impressive freshwater fishing to experience in Garibaldi. The Wilson River flows past this town and empties directly into Tillamook Bay, creating an impressive brackish water fishery. There’s the smaller Tillamook River to explore, too. The fall Chinook and winter Steelhead runs are the jewels of Garibaldi’s river fishing scene, but you’ll be able to find Cutthroat Trout and Sturgeon here, too.
Garibaldi’s fishing guides run trips lasting anywhere from a few hours out on the water, to standard eight-hour trips, to trips extending past the ten-hour mark. The type of adventure you embark on depends on where you want to go. If you’re exploring the bay, a short trip is more than enough time. Heading offshore for huge Halibut? An extended full day trip is a must!

In January, anglers in Garibaldi focus on bottom fishing in the bays. Lingcod and Dungeness Crab are plentiful in these protected waters. If it's raining, you’ll have better luck fishing for Sturgeon!


Try your luck in the bays and bring home delicious Crab and Lingcod. If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, head to one of the local rivers to make the most of the winter Steelhead run!


Crabbing tends to slow down in March, but excellent clamming kicks in just in time to keep you busy. Light tackle and fly fishermen can enjoy some of the best winter Steelhead fishing this month.


Depending on regulations, you might have a shot at some of the best spring Chinook fishing Oregon has to offer while casting lines in Tillamook Bay. Try trolling spinners in the upper bay.


Halibut season usually opens in May. If the Salmon season isn't already open, you can expect it to open this month, just in time for the peak of the spring Chinook run. Clamming is excellent.


With average temperatures as high as 65°F, June is a great time to see what Garibaldi deep sea fishing is all about. Head offshore for Lingcod and Halibut, or scour the beaches for Clams.


In July you can enjoy the greatest variety of fishing that Garibaldi has to offer. Albacore Tuna are appearing offshore, while early fall Chinook make their entrance in Nehalem Bay. Bottom fishing continues to deliver.


Garibaldi sees very little rain in August, with average temperatures soaring almost as high as 70°F. Be sure to get in on the Tuna run while you can. Keep your eyes peeled for the start of the fall Chinook season.


Fall is all about big Chinook and Coho Salmon. This is one of the best times for deep sea fishing. Anglers are still reeling in Tuna offshore and bottom fishing is as good as ever.


Halibut season often closes in October. Fall Salmon fishing continues to draw anglers from far and wide to Tillamook Bay. Clamming and crabbing are picking up momentum.


Head to the Wilson River for some of the best fall Chinook fishing this river has to offer. The winter Steelhead run is kicking in, accompanied by strong Sturgeon fishing in the bay.


Crabbing is at its height, while bottom fishing continues to produce Lingcod and Cabezon. If the weather is rough, comb the beaches for Clams or head to the rivers for winter Steelhead.
