Chinook Salmon on the
Willamette River near
Portland, Oregon, the
Columbia River and and
at Tillamook through the
end of June.
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

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.
