If you want the best Salmon, Steelhead, and Sturgeon fishing, you want to fish the Columbia River.
The Columbia River and Willamette Rivers are home to some of the finest Salmon, Steelhead and Sturgeon fishing in the Pacific Northwest. The Columbia River receives water from tributaries in seven US states as well as British Columbia. It is the fourth largest river, by volume, in America. The Columbia River Watershed extends from the Canadian Rockies in British Columbia to the Pacific Ocean near Astoria, Oregon.
