Silver / Coho Salmon Fishing

Fish Buoy 10 on the Columbia River

BOOK A TRIP

Silver Salmon (Coho) Fishing is Plentiful

Buoy 10 is a great spot to catch your share of this great fish.

Silver salmon, also known as Coho, is a popular and plentiful fishery in Oregon. And one of the best places to fish for this great fish is Buoy 10, located at the mouth of the Columbia River, just inside the bar on the Oregon side. The specific regulations and the fishing season for this area cover the stretch of water from Buoy 10 to the eastern boundary upriver from the Astoria-Megler bridge.

Coho salmon are significantly more numerous than Chinook or King salmon and are known for their aggressiveness on the line. Easy to spook, silver salmon fishing guides often use baitfish, spinners, and jig lures to mimic the prey of these fish and increase your odds of landing your catch without scaring them off.

Silver Salmon Fishing Runs Are Best June – September

Silver Salmon Late Summer to Fall

Book in advance to secure your spot in this popular fishery

Fishing for silver (coho) salmon typically begins in the summer, as early as mid-June, and runs through October. Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) typically opens the season with ocean fishing and then extends the season with river-fishing. We’ve found great results in late summer and up through September and October, making the silver salmon a popular fishing trip for summer vacation travel. You can save your spot on the boat with a downpayment of as little as $100 per person.

Silver salmon are smaller fish than their Chinook and King salmon cousins, but they are fun fighters on the line and make for great eating! The average size of a coho salmon is 8 lbs, with some fish running as heavy as 20 lbs. Coho typically rear for 18 months in freshwater and another 18 months in the ocean before returning for their spawning run.

Buoy 10 Salmon Charter

Columbia River salmon fishing never disappoints!

Silver salmon return to their spawning grounds in the summer and Fall and must pass through the mouth of the Columbia River on their journey. Buoy 10 marks the westernmost boundary where this fishery begins, and extends to the eastern boundary upriver from the Astoria-Megler bridge.

The number of silver salmon varies from year to year, but remains one of the largest salmon seasons on the West coast. This means your chances of not only hooking but of limiting-out on the number of silvers you land is quite good.

Summer months also present some of the most enjoyable weather for a day on the water. Due to the popularity of booking a salmon fishing charter on the Columbia River, we recommend securing your spot on the boat with a down payment as you make your summertime and Fall plans.
