My name is Mike Salazar, professional Columbia River Fishing Guide & the owner/operator of Salt2Summit Guide Service. I am a United States Coast Guard certified captain, with current CPR/first aid certificates and also fully insured. I have 25+ years of experience fishing & hunting the Columbia River. Fishing the world famous Buoy 10 at the mouth of the Columbia River I will follow the peaks of the fish runs up the Columbia River to Hanford Reach and the Snake River. We fish the Columbia River 270 days of the year & offer you a catch fish guarantee!
I begin fishing the Columbia River in the Portland Metro area from late January until September. Fishing late January for Columbia River Spring Chinook and Sturgeon. Spring season in the Columbia River turns to summer run Chinook and Steelhead around June 1st, completing my year chasing the fall Chinook and Steelhead up and down the Columbia River. Along the way hitting all the good spots at their peak times, such as the Cowlitz River, Lewis River, Willamette River, Sandy River, Wind River, Drano Lake, White Salmon, & Klickitat, all which are tribs of the great Columbia River! During my 25+ years I have harvested many trophys from 160 inch Mule Deer, 170 inch Whitetails to Columbia River Chinook Salmon weighing over 50 pounds and Columbia River Steelhead over 24 pounds. Fishing in the great Pacific Northwest more importantly the Columbia River basin can be one of the most rewarding things anyone can do. I can’t wait to meet you and treat you to the adventure of a lifetime.
