Terry has invented many of the techniques all fisherman use for Salmon today.

2015 fishing prospects

  In 2015 I will begin on April 5 for Springers. I will fish the Spring Chinook Salmon on the Willamette River near Portland, Oregon, the Columbia River and and at Tillamook through the end of June.
  I expect to fish the Tillamook area hard early because it's one of the best kept secrets in the Northwest during the Spring months. I did really well there last year and even though the fishing was extremely good, there were not any crowds at all.
  Then I will be off to Kauffman Cove to fish with Doug Wilhite owner of Oregon Alaska fishing adventures. I will be power mooching off the triplets. This is the most intense saltwater Salmon King fishing that I have ever done!
  Then around July 10th (a little earlier if I get requests) I will be heading to Reedsport & the Oregon Coast and fishing the Umpqua River at Winchester Bay for King salmon and Coho. I will be heading to Reedsport   I will be there until September 20.
  On September 20th I will move to Garibaldi.
  I will finish this year back -bouncing eggs on the Wilson River.
We've had great fishing this year so far. We still have a few open dates but only a few so CALL NOW to reserve a seat for one of the best Tillamook Bay Fall Chinook runs ever. The photos below were taken this month at Tillamook Bay and on the Umpqua River.

In five weeks of fishing we harvested 237 Kings. To say the least it was outstanding fishing every day. We started fishing July 28 and fished through September 6. For one stretch of 21 days, in fact the first 21 days, the boat limited every day!

With Terry’s exquisite boat handling ability, his master techniques, the best bait cures in the Northwest and intimate knowledge of rivers and bays you could not ask more from a fishing guide.

Catching Fall Chinook from mid September through October and into November fishing plug cut herring at the mouth of Tillamook Bay can be absolutely spectacular. Chrome bright freight trains inhale you baits and will give you the fight of a lifetime. These fish average close to 30 pounds, and it's not uncommon for Terry's boat catch much larger Fall Chinook Salmon. Terry's boat is easy to spot at Tillamook Bay. It's the one that comes in with limits on a daily basis.
