Spring Chinook Salmon
Fall Chinook Salmon
Fall Chinook Salmon are sometimes referred to as the "Hawgs" and range from 20 to 50 lbs. They enter the mouth of Columbia River at Buoy 10 in August along with the Coho Salmon which provides a mixed bag with lots of catching!!
The Buoy 10 fishery is one of the hottest spots for catching Salmon anywhere in the World! TopGuidesNW knows all of the hottest fishing spots from Buoy 10 to the Cowlitz, Lewis, & Sandy rivers and then Bonneville Dam.
TopGuidesNW is a world class sturgeon fishing guide service.
The Columbia River and Willamette River have the world’s largest population of sturgeon just waiting to fill your day with intense action throughout your trip. Legal size "keepers" are 38"-54" inches and a Sturgeon catch of 18 to 40 fish per day is common.
We are experts on the Sturgeon migration through the Columbia River, beginning in Astoria all the way to Hood River in the Columbia River Gorge. Fishing for Sturgeon is full of action packed fun!!!
"Oversize" Sturgeon are the big boys!!! These Magnificent Monsters are a fish of a life time. There is not many places in the world you can catch a fish this BIG!! An Oversized Sturgeon is 7 to 12 Foot and weigh between 150 to 1000 lbs.
There is nothing in the world like having a 400 lb. fish that is over 10 foot long come completely out of the water and shake his head then go back down for another 100 yard run. These fights can take over an hour before you get them into the boat.
We target the beast when the shad are running, which we catch and use for bait during May through September. So be ready for a workout. Our Oversized Sturgeon Guide trips are on the Columbia River from Portland Oregon to Bonneville Dam.
Kokanee Fishing In Southwest Washington is AWESOME! Not only doesTopGuidesNW fish in the Columbia River and its tributaries, but we also guide in the pristine hills of Lake Merwin. There you can enjoy the beautiful scenery and fish for the hard fighting Kokanee; a landlocked sockeye salmon that can be compared to the spring salmon for taste.
Lake Merwin is one of the most popular Kokanee fishing lakes in the Northwest and every year anglers from all over Washington head to this reservoir to catch HUGE Kokanee. Their meat is bright red and it's never oily so you get a premium fillet that is considered by some as the best tasting Salmon you can get.
