Fishing for Salmon on the Columbia River
The Columbia River offers some of the best salmon fishing in the world with regular runs twice each year. Fishing for salmon on the Columbia is a nice change from fishing for them in the sea off the Oregon coast as you don't have problems getting sea sick.
Captain Don starts fishing for salmon from 6 am to 2 pm from a variety of locations in the Columbia river. He stays constantly aware of where the fish are and the most current techniques and lures/baits to use to get the most salmon.
