Kayak Fishing For King And Coho Salmon

Today I’m posting a few videos up which describe the tackle and approach used when kayak fishing for salmon in the Pacific Northwest.

This video below outlines the tackle used for salmon in the salt water for the most part but the gear and technique mentioned could be used in lakes or slow moving rivers as well.


The next video was made by my fishing partner Todd and is not necessarily instructional but does  expose some of the techniques we use to target salmon such as Coho or Kings in the Columbia River system near buoy 10.


Finally, my fishing parter Todd has also provided the following two videos which I have contributed to and where we are targeting Coho on the Cowlitz River from kayaks.


In a future post I will describe some of the gear and modifications to gear and kayaks which I have done in order to help me catch more salmon effectively.
