An Oregon river salmon fishing trip provides a real challenge to the angler while at the same time he can learn a few salmon fishing techniques and tips that are used to catch these sea run giants.
Everyone knows how good fresh salmon is on the dinning table, however it’s also the day on the river and being with close friends and/or business associates that make a good day really great.
We are able to fish for Spring Chinook and Fall Chinook Salmon in the rivers and inter-coastal tide waters near Eugene, including the Willamette, McKenzie, South Santiam, Siuslaw, Smith, Umpqua and Alsea rivers.
Spring Chinook, called “springers”, arrive in our local rivers about the middle of May and fishing lasts until the latter part of June. Fall Chinook can enter the lower sections of some inter-coastal tidewater as early as mid August and fishing can last thru October weather conditions permitting.
If you are from out of our area and looking for accommodations, do an internet search “Gateway Motels Springfield Oregon” and you will find about a dozen newer motel listed. This area is between Eugene and Springfield just off the I-5 freeway, close to restaurants, a major shopping center, and Cabela’s Outfitters.
Please book early for the best dates that meet your travel plans. I do half day and full day
trips and can arrange for extra boats if needed. Your investment for a full day of Spring
or Fall salmon fishing fun is $400.00 for a two person trip.
