Washington Salmon and Steelhead Guide



Washington Salmon and Steelhead Fishing Guide

Thanks for checking us out. We invite you to join us on some of the most productive waters Washington State has to offer the fishing sportsmen and enthusiasts. We target some of the most sought after fishing destinations for salmon, steelhead, and other game fish.

Onco Sportfishing offers spring, summer, fall, and winter fishing. We start the year out in Fork's, Washington drifting the white water rivers through the lush rain forests of the Olympic Peninsula, (freshwater fishing), and matching wits with wild salmon or trophy steelhead. In the spring we are fishing the Columbia River from Cathlamet, I-5 at Portland to the Bonneville Dam chasing the Spring Kings in our jet sled. These are a prized fish, the first to enter the river, full of fat, succulent, and some of the best eating salmon Washington State has to offer. Next we offer power boat trips, (our Washington Salmon charters), searching the protected waters of Neah Bay, Sekiu and Puget Sound, (saltwater fishing), chasing Chinook, Coho, chum, Humpies, or the cutthroat trout. In the fall we are based and run our trips out of Chinook, Washington fishing on the Columbia River at Buoy 10 near Astoria, Long beach, and Illwaco, targeting the Chinook, and Coho. After the Fall Salmon on the lower Columbia River we move our operation to the South East corner of Washington State to another major river, the famous Snake River out of Heller Bar just 30 miles South of Clarkston and Lewiston for lots of Steelhead, some oversized sturgeon and we do a little bird hunting while there. We also fish the Cowlitz River for Winter Steelhead, Spring Salmon, Summer Steelhead, and Fall Salmon. Join us on any one of these destinations and enjoy the beauty and fishing bounties Washington state and the Pacific Northwest provide.

Anglers of all ages and abilities are welcome at Onco Sportfishing and we will furnish you with all the bait and tackle needed. We use only the finest of equipment, including G-Loomis fishing rods, Gamakatsu hooks, Shimano and Ambassadeur reels. We use Yakima bait products, Berkley products, Stren fishing line and Izorline. Onco Sportfishing provides a heated 16' Willie Drift Boat that can accommodate two anglers for the white water fishing trips, a 22' Willie Asaltor that seats up to four for our saltwater charters and at Buoy 10, and a 23 foot Alumaweld Super Vee Jet boat that seats up to six anglers for the bigger rivers of the Pacific Northwest.

Any guide or Charter captain that works for us, including myself, is full time and licensed in Washington State for salmon steelhead, and trout. All our skippers are Coast Guard licensed captains and I personally hold a 100-ton Captains license that allows me to operate upon near coastal waters of the United States. Onco Sportfishing owns a Washington State Charter license with six angling, (rod), permits. We are also insured, CPR and First Aid certified, hold a TWIC card, and carry all the documentations on our vessels to prove it. I am a Pro staff member of the Pure Fishing Captain and Guide Program, C.A.P.S., (Charter boat Association of Puget Sound), and a NACO, (National Association of Charter boat Operators), member. Our priority is your safety, success, and enjoyment while fishing with Onco Sportfishing.

We can offer you multiple day or custom fishing excursions. Bed & Breakfasts or motels are the norm for multiple day bookings. Custom trips are available so let us know what your needs are. Plan ahead so we can customize a trip to suit your needs. Taking a guided trip is a great way to enjoy the outdoors, learn the river, or spend time with a friend, loved one, or a business associate. Corporate accounts are available.

Although our site's primary focus is on our Washington fishing guide services, feel free to kick your shoes off and browse around a bit. We'll try to make your stay worthwhile. We provide pages where you can find information on the types of fish that we are catching, tips for preserving and preparing your catch, weather links, fishing reports, and other information you might find useful.
