Westport Salmon FishingThe (Chinook) king salmon fishing in Westport usually begins in June and heats up in July. Silver (coho) salmon fishing also is excellent in July and continues on into August and September. Westport fishing for salmon is arguable some of the best anywhere on the planet. Indeed, Westport is nicknamed “The Salmon Capital of the World.”
Fishing for and fighting king salmon is one of the ultimate tests for any angler. These fish are fast and big. Fish topping 50 pounds are not uncommon. They will rip line from your spool, challenge your strength, and take you on a journey around the boat multiple times before you have a chance to land them.
Silvers might not get as big as kings, but they make up for their lack of size with dogged tenacity. Westport fishing charters for silvers and kings usually require anglers to practice a mooching technique that gives you complete control over hooking and fighting your own fish. Mooching is done by lowering your bait to a desired depth, and then fishing the water column as you reel back up.
Obviously, fishing in Westport for salmon can be non-stop, exciting, and result in plenty of filets for the freezer. When you take one of our Westport salmon fishing trips, our captains and courteous deckhands will give you a full rundown on how to hook and land your fish, and will do everything they can to make sure everything possible is being done to ensure your fishing experience is of the highest quality.

This kind of fishing is ideal for anybody who simply wants to enjoy some exciting fishing action and some great tasting fish to take home, especially novice anglers and groups. The bottom fishing trips that we offer go after two of the white fleshed, mildest, and best tasting fish in the ocean, namely ling cod and sea bass.
Ling cod can place a considerable amount of strain on a fishing rod and weigh as much as 40 pounds. Sea bass usually weigh between one and eight pounds, the limits are usually very liberal, and it isn’t uncommon to catch two of these voracious fish at a time.
HALIBUT FISHING WITH WESTPORT FISHING CHARTERS

These fish can weigh as much as 150 pounds, although the average halibut we catch weigh about 20 pounds with fish between 50 and 70 pounds not being uncommon, and fishing for halibut requires strength and stamina. During our halibut fishing trips, our customers will also catch large black cod, sea bass, and ling cod. These are all considered bonus fish and our customers are always surprised every time they reel a fish into the boat.
We encourage our customers to try tuna fishing if they have never done so before. The coast of Washington offers some exciting and thrilling tuna fishing. Most of our customers simply haven’t tried tuna fishing because they mistakenly believe that it is necessary to travel to the tropics to catch one of the fastest fish in the ocean. A two or three day fishing trip for tuna will provide some incredible fishing and the fishing experience of a lifetime.
In addition to there being a considerable number of albacore tuna, they usually weigh between 15 and 45 pounds. Usually, our customers who have never fished for albacore tuna believe that they have hooked a much larger fish when they first hook one.
