2016 SEASON FISHING BEGINS APRIL 2ND, 2017 TO END OF SEPT. 2017 Bottom fishing has been great Lots of lings and limits of assorted rock fish

With the curtailment of the salmon season in the late 70's, Pacific Salmon Charters Inc. started exploring the possibilities of catching limits of bottom fish. We found large quantities of bottom fish 18 miles from Ilwaco. In 2006 Milt found a spot the fish off the coast of Washington with much larger fish and limits of rockfish and lingcod. We will fish this spot more, as weather will allow us. The scenery as you travel to the bottom fish grounds is very exciting and beautiful, so bring your camera.  GOOD NEWS, when you go Bottom fishing on inland waters if you happen to catch a Halibut you may retain the fish on Monday, Tuesday and Wed. only.  Give us a call to set up a inland bottom fishing trip see what you may catch.


Please call early as we expect a busy fishing season. Group rates weekdays only until early July. Please call for current pricing.


Limits of assorted rockfish and ling cod each has been the rule rather than the exception. Bottom fishing will be April through September. You can expect to great fishing throughout the season.
