A. The Columbia River is the biggest river in the American West and has tremendous fishing opportunities. Here are some of the most popular fish species your guide Bill Rivas will chase:
Chinook Fishing – There are three runs of Chinook, Spring, Summer, and Fall. The most prized Chinook are the “Springers.” The run is smaller compared to the summer and fall seasons. Springers are often compared to the famous Copper River runs in Alaska. The reason is their outstanding taste. Summer Chinook is often referred to as “June Hogs” because of their arrival time and the large size of the fish. Fall Chinook, this run happens in August and September, and it’s the largest run of Chinook.

August is Buoy 10 times. A great season can potentially find hundreds of thousands of coho salmon and Chinook returning from the ocean to start their journey up the Columbia River.
