Kayak Fishing Ultimate Resource

Mon, Nov 24, 2014

Kayak fishing reports of Sturgeon fishing in Willamette River and Salmon fishing on the Columbia. Reports from all over Oregon and Washington.

I live and grew up fishing in Florida, and it’s a thrill each and every time I fish. I recently vacationed in upper reaches of the Northwest at the base of the breathtaking landscape of Olympic National Park. It’s surrounded by the Olympic rain forest, and is known for the outdoor filming of the movie Twilight - La Push, WA.

Over Before You Know It

Written by

November 1st marked the opening day of the Winter Sturgeon season on the popular Lower Willamette.  Retention days were set at Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.  Having been closed since March, many people were eager for the season to begin again.  And so it did.

And then it was gone.

Kayak Crabbing

Written by

One of the greatest bounties to be had out of Pacific waters is Dungeness Crab.  While crabbing is very different than the kayak fishing we enjoy, it can be done from a kayak as well. Companies like Promar, Scotty and Danielson have made products that make crabbing from your kayak easy to do.

Fall nookie is better than none!

Written by

Anglers can look forward to one of the best returns of chinook salmon in several years when the fall fishing season gets under way Aug. 1 on the Columbia River.

Fisheries managers are forecasting a return of 655,000 adult fall chinook this year, which is up from a return of 429,000 chinook last year. If the run materializes as expected, it would be the largest fall chinook return since 2004.

More PC Fun

Written by

I've been running to PC whenever the surf is down enough for me to launch. I just love the fishing out there - anyone could really do it...

This time I brought a crab pot with me. I've never tried crabbing out there before, but I usually see one other crab buoy, so I figured I'd give it a go. I just took the one pot (oregon limits 3 pots/person) just so I didn't have to worry about all the extra gear for nothing.

Tournament Preparation

Written by

Since I've been getting ready for the 3rd annual Oregon Rockfish Classic this weekend, I thought it would be a good time to show you a bit of what goes on with me when getting ready for this type of event.  There's some variation with other tournaments, mostly in regards to tackle, so it's not that big of a difference.

Summertime and the... um... surf's up again?!?

Written by
Sorry it's taken so long for this report to come through.  Life's been crazy busy, but I've been on the water regularly.  So, how about some updates!

Weather had calmed down and allowed for a couple weeks of good saltwater fishing - just enough for everyone to get a hit, and now wanting more. If you could get out far enough, halibut was doing very well, so that was most up for the charter boat guys.  Those of us in kayaks found greenling (sea trout), rockfish, and lingcod all very active and hitting all sorts of baits.  There's a great single day fishing report in the forums.
