Big Boats, Big Water and Big Fish in Astoria!
Astoria is one of the most popular salmon destinations in all of the Pacific Northwest. August is the month when things really heat up, and anglers have the opportunity to catch limits of both Kings and Coho. It is absolute mayhem fishing. Big Gear, Big Fish Big Boats and lots of anglers all congregate to create one of the most festive, fun fishing experiences around.
I fished Astoria last Friday and was joined by the crew from Tim Bailey and Associates. We fished with long time guide Wayne Priddy, and he put us on the fish! We found success using VMC hooks and Cut Plug Herring. It was an absolutely spectacular day of fishing!
