We were the only ones on the water. The sturgeon were jumping out of the water everywhere. The weather was mild and partially cloudy. All around excellent time.

Salem area fishing can be hit or miss as Salemites know. But, folks, say yes to Oregon coastal river fishing! And, use Chicken Little! Capt Logan has your back! Trust me, 60-90 minutes back to Salem goes by in a flash when you catch your limit with your kid!

It depends on rain and how many fish enter river during the run. Also if they start to let netting of drag boats it decreases your chance of a big fish. August to first week of September

Nice heavy jacket and long sleeves to shed off when fishing in the morning. We had a 7 to 11 trip to Timothy Lake♡ Absolutely loved the peacefulness of the morning though drive was great! But service is spotty so make sure to write down your directions.

Helpful to know river levels and what affects it (dam releases on Columbia, snow melt on Mt Hood, weather, etc.). Know when the fish are running. Go with a guide if you can.

Although we did not catch our fish, there were plenty out there. We had two young boys in the boat and they were learning alot. We all three had a blast and now we think we are ready for the fish. Thank You!

To Look on fishingbooker.com to select the right fishing. It was great. Only the way to get a licence+harvest list is too complicated. It is still paper required. I think everything must go digital. Iam a German and I needed to go around to find a place where these papers could be printed out.

Allow plenty of time to get from the airport to the coast. The best salmon fishing is near the mouth of the Columbia River or just offshore.
