Coho and Chinook Salmon

Columbia River & Willamette River

Guided Salmon Fishing Trips

Spring Chinook Salmon

These fish are highly prized for their superior Omega-3 EFA content and, in our opinion, are the best tasting among all the salmon varieties. Spring Chinook Salmon are an exciting fish to catch, and they range from eight to 15 pounds each. Our fishing waters include both the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. We will be using a variety of effective techniques from back bouncing to trolling cured baits or flashy lures to land these amazing fish.

Fall Coho Salmon

Coho Salmon are the most aggressive species of salmon. Violent strikes and hard runs are trademarks of the Coho. Fall Chinook are the largest salmon species, reaching eights of over 50 pounds. Our fishing waters include the saltwater regions of the Columbia River (Buoy 10 and Estuary), Mainstrem Columbia, and many small Oregon coastal bays and ributaries. Our guides use proven techniques to ensure success –floats, back bouncing and trolling baits or lures.

“I will never forget watching CJ’s eyes light up as she hooked and fought that Smallie. My hope is that she can hold these experiences and rely on them as she faces the challenges of growing up in
today’s world.

Thank you Ed. You may not realize it, but you’re not selling fishing trips, your selling moments, and they last forever.”

“Ed is a great guide and will give his all to help you find the fish. We had a lot of fun chasing Kings at Buoy 10 yesterday. Will definitely look up Ed next time we are heading out – highly recommend!”

“I recently went out with Ed Chin on a guided fishing trip for salmon. It was a great experience. He has a very nice boat and provided snacks and drinks. I am new to fishing. Ed explained everything to me and made it easy and fun. We put fish in the boat on a very tough day. I didn’t see many others catch fish. I had delicious Coho for dinner I would highly recommend All About Adventure Excursions. I will be using his guided fishing services again.”
