Columbia River Fishing Charter and Guide Service

Columbia River- the mighty Columbia river once known for 100 lb plus salmon, 2000 lb sturgeon and the historic stopping point for Lewis and Clark, it still is home to the largest salmon run in the pacific northwest and gives the novice angler or professional some of the the best fishing in the world. For one, either bank fishing or with the opportunity with the power boat,

March, April and May attracts us to the Columbia river for the epic spring Chinook salmon run that takes place, either trolling herring and flasher setups, prawn spinners or anchor fishing with salmon plugs. An average day on the Columbia river can often yield boat limits of the worlds tastiest salmon, with the closure given by co-managers of WDFW and ODFW. 

Once the salmon quota on the lower Columbia has been caught, you can often catch Gaffney's Guide Service moving up river to the Drano lake/ Wind River area, using similar techniques all the while enjoying the vast beautiful scenery of the Columbia River gorge.

With Gaffney's Washington fishing guide service, we teach you how to fish on the Columbia river, and help you learn the techniques needed to hook the big Chinook salmon, just like the folks you see here.
