River Fishing Guides association is a group
of private citizens and fishing guides living in the Columbia River area in Oregon,
Washington and Idaho. Our purpose and goal is to help fishing guides educate people around the
world about the Columbia River and it's vast beauty and resources.
Salmon fishing on the Columbia
River by Columbia River fishing guides is good because local Sturgeon
keeper Sturgeon oversize Sturgeon and Columbia River fishing guides
catch more Sturgeon. If you know "how to catch Salmon" and "how to catch
Salmon" you will fish the Columbia river with knowledgeable fishing
guides and charter boats. Charters book fishing trips for half day trips
and full day trips on the Columbia River.
The Columbia River
Columbia River Fishing Guides: The Columbia River drains a 259,000-square-mile basin that includes
territory in seven states (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Nevada,
Wyoming, and Utah) and one Canadian province. The river is arguably the
most significant environmental force in the Pacific Northwest region of
the United States. It flows for more than 1,200 miles, from the base of
the Canadian Rockies in southeastern British Columbia to the Pacific
Ocean at Astoria, Oregon, and Ilwaco, Washington. Although humans have
lived along the river for more than 10,000 years, modern engineering in
the 19th and 20th centuries has dramatically altered the Columbia.
Astoria fishing is great with fishing guides who fish the lower Columbia

Description: The Columbia
originates in two lakes that lie between the Continental Divide and
Selkirk mountain ranges in British Columbia. The river's course is
convoluted. It flows north for its first 200 or more miles, then it
turns south and runs to the international border. Within the United
States, the river courses southwest and skirts one of the Columbia
Plateau's massive lava flows, then it turns to the southeast, cutting a
dramatic gorge in the volcanic shield to its junction with the westward
flowing Snake River.
From its confluence with the Snake,
the Columbia runs nearly due west to the Pacific Ocean.
Fifteen percent of the basin -- 39,000 square miles -- lies
in Canada and the largest of the river's major tributaries
is the Snake River, itself more than 1,100 miles long. The
Columbia River Basin includes a diverse ecology that ranges
from temperate rain forests to semi-arid plateaus, with
precipitation levels from 110 inches to 6 inches per year.
Most important, perhaps, the Columbia is a snow-charged river that
seasonally fluctuates in volume. Its annual average discharge is 160
million acre-feet of water, with the highest volumes between April and
September, the lowest from December to February. From its source at
2,650 feet above sea level, the river drops an average of more than 2
feet per mile, but in some sections it falls nearly 5 feet per mile.

The Columbia has ten major tributaries: the Kootenay, Okanagan,
Wenatchee, Spokane, Yakima, Snake, Deschutes, Willamette, Cowlitz, and
Lewis rivers. Its most important tributary, the Snake, flows across a
semi-arid plain and runs through the deepest gorge in North America,
Hell's Canyon -- 7,900 feet deep. The Deschutes and Willamette rivers
drain basins south of the Columbia, while the Yakima, Lewis, and Cowlitz
rivers drain areas on the north side of the river.
