Ocean Salmon Fishing

In good years, huges schools of krill bloom off of the Northern California and Southern Oregon coast. This plentiful food source attracts north-migrating salmon of Sacramento and Klamath origins and local-orgin salmon from the Rogue, Chetco & Smith. When this happens, there is an awesome salmon bite within a few miles of shore. When ocean conditions are prime, this is an outstanding fishery.

Licensed in both California & Oregon, we follow the schools and launch out of either Crescent City, CA or Brookings Oregon.


Season
Depending on ocean conditions, good ocean salmon fishing can start early in June and continues through August. There is also a "bubble" season in October to target returning Chetco salmon.
