We offer many different options during Summer and Fall for Salmon fishing in Nehalem Bay. Starting in June or July Hammerhead offers trips in Nehalem and Tillamook Bay for some absolutely pristine Chinook Salmon and we like to fish the Ocean for Coho and Chinook Salmon which can be an absolute blast when the ocean cooperates. Check out https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KioHNRPVLQg to see a typical summer day for ocean coho. These trips can be combined with bottom fish and/or crab as well.
In August we move to Hammond to fish the world famous Buoy 10 fishery for Chinook and Coho Salmon.
By September we are back to Nehalem and Tillamook Bays fishing for the big bruiser, Fall Chinook Salmon. We will fish the bays until the rains raise the coastal rivers enough to get out the drift boat. Then we follow the fish up stream. Big fish in small rivers = Big Fun! This typically lasts through November when we start to switch gears and chase Winter Steelhead.
