Spring Chinook out of Tillamook Bay.


Near shore Halibut, Bottom Fish, Crab, Tuna, summer Chinook and Coho out of Tillamook Bay until around July 10. Then Crab, summer Chinook and Coho out of Winchester Bay (near Reedsport and out of the Umpqua River).

This is how the remainder of my 2017 season will appear to be. I will be targeting these available species: Chinook, Coho, Bottom Fish (Ling Cod/Sea Bass), Albacore Tuna, Halibut and Crab!

     The spring Halibut season is over and was generally a success, when the ocean conditions allowed us to go out. The summer season begins in August and for the first time, I will target Halibut out of Winchester Bay. Because of this, I will target them on the following dates:
August 4 & 5 and August 18 & 19.

     The information that I have been receiving indicates that there are some really nice Halibut available out of this port so I went ahead and added August 18 & 19.

Naturally, this is based upon the available quota having not been caught. But I can tell you that on my Halibut trip July 1, we caught some really nice ones that nearly won the big fish pot worth more than $4400.00 as of July 4th.

     The ocean Coho season began slowly June 24 however they have been catching them very well out of Winchester Bay. And I will be there after July 10th. The summer Coho season will last through July 31 or until the available quota has been caught and then will re-open for the non-selective season on September 2 (non-selective meaning you can keep native or hatchery) until September 30 or that quota has been caught. During this time, we will be catching Chinook!     From mid-July through mid-October, that time generally books up early. That doesn’t mean there won’t be short notice openings available. It just means that the sooner you book, the more likely it will be that your requested dates will be available.
   In 2016, my 28’ North River Seahawk hardtop boat caught more than a thousand salmon, halibut, bottom fish and tuna. Add to that many trips when customers took limits of Dungeness Crab. Nearly every Halibut trip resulted in all people on board limiting out and to top that off, my customers were able to use electric reels!

HUGE Chinook at Winchester Bay

On August 28, 2016, Chris Laue caught this 42 pound
Chinook (photos below) at Winchester Bay
Unfortunately, he wasn't in the "Big Fish" pot for the 40 pound or greater Chinook, worth more than $3500.00, but he did go home with a great experience of a lifetime and a fantastic amount of Salmon filets.
