Westport Fishing Charters for Salmon
The (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.

Halibut are commonly believed to be the best eating fish in the ocean. When your friends hear about your halibut fillets, they are all going to invite themselves over for a barbeque.
Westport's Best Kept Secret – Tuna!
If you've never been tuna fishing then it's something you have to try. There is no way to convey the sheer thrill and excitement of tuna fishing off of Washington's coast. Most people haven't tried it simply because they think you have to travel to the tropics to tangle with some of the fastest fish in the ocean. Now that that secret is getting out, you should definitely consider joining us for two to three days of some of the most incredible fishing you will ever do in your life.
Not only do albacore tuna range from 15 to 45 pounds, there are plenty of them. If you've never fished for albacore, when you first hook one you will think you've hooked onto a much larger fish. While king salmon can briefly reach speeds over 50mph, an albacore tuna can sustain those speeds for the duration of the fight.
Albacore are also one of the highest quality eating fish in the Pacific. We use live anchovies to catch albacore tuna, and when the fishing is on the action can be fast and furious.
