Being so close to rivers and the Pacific Ocean, makes our Oregon Coast resorts, Gearheart by the Sea, an excellent fishing resort providing opportunities for everyone in your family! Whether you decide to fish from the marina or embark on a charter fishing adventure. Gearheart by the Sea has you covered.
Some of our most popular species are salmon and sturgeon! Lucky for you our Oregon Coast resorts are near some of the best salmon fishing in the area! Charter boats are available throughout the season. The Columbia River provides Salmon, Steelhead, Sturgeon, and Kokanee. While the river has salmon almost year-round, there are three different salmon runs. The spring salmon run starts in early January, and the last fall salmon run usually ends in late October. So, all together it adds up to ten months of running salmon in the Columbia River! Of course, fishing regulations are what structure your opportunity to fish! As for Sturgeons, if they range from 4 to 6 feet long, you can keep them. Sturgeons don’t spawn yearly, making them a prized catch! The best Sturgeon fishing months are May, June, and July.
Astoria offers several charter boats to take you fishing for salmon and sturgeon! Experienced charter operators will take care of everything, including fishing licenses! So, all that’s left for you to worry about, is fishing! Salmon fishing ocean trips are available through a variety of charter companies. Catch tuna, halibut, bottom fish and Dungeness crab off the Oregon Coast! Once you get back to your rental, at one of our Oregon Coast resorts, you can enjoy cooking your catch of the day!
Gearheart by the Sea is one of the prettiest Oregon Coast resorts, between our fun resort activities and the fishing excursions offered around, you’re sure to have an incredible experience on your vacation!
