Upper Columbia River Fall King Salmon fishing
Upper Columbia Fall King Salmon:
Fall king salmon fishing runs from September to mid/late October. The area is known as the Vernita/Hanford Reach area, which is the largest stretch of the Columbia River for spawning.
This makes fishing fantastic, allowing you to catch some of the largest fish in the Upper Columbia River. An incredible adventure to be sure, this type of fishing is trolling with cut plug herring, super baits, quick fish, or even just a bait of eggs with a flasher.
This fishery is extremely popular and I’m intimately familiar with all the good fishing spots on this stretch of the Columbia River that most people don’t know about.
This is my favorite fishery on the Upper Columbia River because of the abundance of big salmon. The weather is fantastic as well.
The mornings are cool, the days are hot… but the fishing is even hotter! If you have never fished the Upper Columbia for fall kings, book a trip and ask all sorts of questions.
