Every year thousands of people descend on the Astoria, Oregon area for some of the best chinook salmon fishing the Northwest has to offer. Named after the westernmost deadline of the fishing area, the Buoy 10 fishery is quite a sight to behold. It involves strong currents, unpredictable weather, an astounding amount of boat traffic, and, of course, plenty of salmon. Until recently, it was very rare to see a kayak fisherman out in the mix among the powerboats here, but that has changed over the last couple of years. I recently spent four days in late August fishing this area with several other kayakers and we did very well.
The 8th annual Oregon Rockfish Classic presented by Next Adventure will take place on July 11th 2015 at Depoe Bay, OR. Proudly the largest kayak fishing tournament in the Northwest, the ORC always creates a spirit of friendly competition and camaraderie for the kayak fishing community.
Last weekend the Next Adventure PSC hosted its inaugural Chinook Showdown Spring Salmon derby in support of Heroes on the Water. The warm weather made for a great day to get out on the water and anglers from as far as Southern Oregon and Seattle helped to make this event a huge success.
Spring is one of the best times to be a fisherman in Portland. From March through June, there are spring Chinook salmon to be had right in the Willamette River. Not only do they put up a good fight but they are one of tastiest salmon around.
