Columbia River salmon fishing season highlights are:
Summer Chinook Salmon…
Known as June hogs for their historic size, this is another great fishery right on the heels of spring Chinook. We start targeting these hogs in June and fish through July. These summer Chinook usually average twenty plus pounds with thirty pounders being common. There are summer Chinook caught in the forty-pound class every summer with some reaching the fifty-pound mark. We target these hogs in the Columbia River from Cathlamet to Bonneville Dam. Their origin is an upper Columbia stock; their home waters are well past the tri-cities in the upper reach. We catch them in the lower Columbia River where they are chrome bright and full of fight. Hands down one of the nicest hardest fighting fish that swims.
