Any angler worth their salt knows that a Washington Coast fishing trip is something that should be experienced at least once in a lifetime. With well over 150 miles of Pacific coastline and rivers brimming with sport fish, the area is famous for its superb action.

What’s amazing about the Washington Coast is that its fisheries are so versatile. When you want some saltwater fishing fun, all you have to do is head to the ocean and pick your target. Bottom dwellers like Rockfish, Halibut, and Flounder are the most popular catch. If you prefer deep sea fishing, then chase Albacore Tuna in summer months.

While the ocean bite is excellent, it’s the freshwater action that puts the area on the map. The Calawah, Whynoochee, and Humptulips Rivers boast premier Salmon and Rainbow Trout fishing. Chinook and Coho are the stars of the show and, in some parts, you can also come across the elusive Pink Salmon. Crabbing is another popular pastime with delicious results.

There’s a lot of local guides all over the Washington Coast, but one thing to bear in mind is the seasonality of the trips. Talk to your captain before you head out and they’ll advise you about the best time to go fishing. After that, you can take your pick between half day and full day options, and there are also specialized expeditions if there’s a species you’d like to chase.

Some of the best spots where you can book your charter are Montesano, Hoquiam, Ilwaco, and Westport.

Rules & Regulations

Once you’ve decided on what you’d like to catch and have picked your Washington Coast fishing adventure, it’s time to think about your angling license. Every person age 12 and older needs an appropriate fishing license and tags. This is the one thing you need to take care of yourself –your guide will provide everything else.

January

It can get chilly on the water, but braving the cold will be worth it because this is one of the best months for catching jumbo Rainbow Trout and Steelhead. Put on some layers and get fishing!

February

There’s not much to catch in the ocean waters, except perhaps a Flounder here and there. The lack of saltwater action is more than compensated on the freshwater front, where Trout are biting left and right.

March

With spring weather comes the beginning of the Rockfish season, and there’s plenty for you to catch out there! You can find solid Trout fishing on the rivers, but these fish prefer colder water, so will be less active as time goes on.

April

With more beautiful and warm days on the horizon, dedicate some time to saltwater fishing and you won’t be disappointed by the result. The Lingcod season is officially open, and you can also target Rockfish, Halibut, and Flounder.

May

While freshwater fishing offers some decent Rainbows, all eyes now turn to the Pacific, where you can get your hands on a great variety of bottom fish. Whether it’s Halibut, Rockfish, or Lingcod, it’s up to you.

June

The first month of summer marks the beginning of the ocean Salmon season, and you’ll see a lot of anglers on the water enjoying it. Add that to the already impressive bottom fishing action, and you know you’re going to have a great time.

July
Coho (Silver) Salmon follow closely after Chinook (King), but fishing for Silvers is much more strictly regulated. So if you hit the water with Coho on your mind in July, double check the current regulations just to be on the safe side.
August

Now that Salmon have spent some time in the ocean, they’re slowly entering the rivers up and down the coast, and fishermen are ready! You can also change things up with deep sea fishing and go after Albacore Tuna.

September

This is one of the best months for freshwater Salmon fishing! Whether it’s Chinook, Coho, or Pink (on odd years), getting one of these beauties on a fly will be an experience to remember!

October

The superb Salmon bite continues on the rivers and if you’re looking to catch a lunker, this is your month. There’s a big number of charters focusing their efforts on Salmon now and the results are fantastic.

November
The Lingcod season is officially closed and saltwater fishing is generally slowing down. On the rivers, Salmon are also leaving, so this is your last chance to get your share of this fabulous fish.
December

Salmon are gone, but worry not, because Rainbow Trout and Steelhead are coming to make everything better. The winter Trout fishing is incredibly productive and you can find some jumbo specimens in the rivers this time of year.

My son my wife and I came from Minnesota with the goal of learning something about salmon fishing in the rivers of the Pacific Northwest, a type of fishing we’ve never before had the chance to experience. This was the perfect trip. Jim was clearly very organized and prepared and had a plan for how to best handle the high water conditions from the recent rain. He had ton of valuable knowledge about fishing in the area and put us on some fantastic fish. Would defiantly book again.

Had a great time on the river. Highly recommended Captain Jim. Fishing with a 9 year old is often difficult, Captain Jim made it look easy and was one step ahead of us all day long. Will be booking again in the future.

We enjoyed a perfect day fishing with Captain Jim. His experience had us landing fish despite it being a slow day on the river. We persevered when others quit early and headed home. We are already planning our next trip and would definitely recommend Captain Jimbo to anyone interested in having a great experience!

Had a great day on the water with Jim. Took my wife and father in law. He was very attentive to their needs all day. Make sure and take your wife/girlfriend or mom. Women on the boat is a good luck charm. Thanks Jim.

Jim is an awesome person to work with. I hired him to take my son and I out for his birthday and he made it all about my son. If we go this route again I will definitely be getting ahold of Jim for the trip.

The perfect charter! This was a gift for my husband, Capt Tony who has been a high seas commercial fisherman, fishing around 1/2 of the world. Also, two of our grandchildren, who recreationally fish,16 & 27. My husband, TG said they were heading in with fish while others were looking for a "spot"!?We will go again.

Our trip was awesome! Captain Jason was great to deal with leading up to the trip and he delivered everything he promised and more. We limited out on salmon and Lingcod and had a blast doing so! I’m already planning my next trip with Pacific Bluewater Sportfishing!

Jim was a hell of a fishing guide, full of knowledge and great company. We started catching fish less than 15 minutes into the trip, ending the day with a belly full of tasty steelhead.

We planned this trip for a long time. Me and my boyfriend never had a guided tour before. We were praying for no rain and we had that, but we didn’t catch any salmon, Jim used all of his “magic” tricks and we fished at multiple spots. Despite all that, we had a wonderful time with Jim. He entertained us with amazing stories and kept up with my boyfriend “s 1000’s of questions. We definitely will schedule some other trip with him soon,

Jim is an amazing guide! From providing step by step instructions on how to best cast, teaching us about his rigs, to keeping us entertained the whole 8 hours, Jim was great company for this trip. Despite going home empty handed (the Steelhead were being difficult lol) we are excited to book another trip with Jim to give Steelhead another go! Thank you Jim, looking forward to our next trip!

Captain Miller was a great guide and instructor. He was very patient with us (I'm very much a novice to river fishing) and made sure we had every opportunity to catch a fish. We, unfortunately, were unlucky and didn't bring in any keepers, but we had a good time nonetheless. I would definitely go on this trip again with Capt. Miller.

Knowledgeable, great communicator, fun, great boat all made for an enjoyable day. Jim had us in a position to have line in the water the whole day. Tangled, another pole ready. Can’t catch if not in the water. Day flew by, walked away knowing more and meeting a terrific captain. We will come back for more!
