Columbia River Gorge Blog
The Columbia Gorge has become the leading King Salmon destination in the world. That's why Cabela's Outfitters has teamed up Skamania Lodge and our featured guide service, Fishing The Gorge to showcase their official featured king salmon destination. The largest king salmon run in history is forecast to enter the Columbia River this fall. Our lodge is located in the epicenter of this world class fishery and Fishing The Gorge can put you on the fish. This is an amazing angling opportunity that should not be passed up.

King salmon fishing in the Columbia Gorge has become a huge attraction and has gone viral. Aside from our excellent spring and summer run forecasts, all the buz in the media highlights the 1.6 million king salmon forecast to enter the Columbia beginning in August. This will be the largest run ever recorded since we began counting in 1938. Certainly the largest king salmon fishing attraction in the world.
King salmon sport fishing in Alaska has been in severe decline due to offshore commercial trawling. Meanwhile the Columbia gorge is booming. This is why Cabelas Outfitters is showcasing our awesome alliance as their sole featured fishing trip. They chose to feature us over any other trip they have world wide. Very exciting. The Columbia Gorge is quickly becoming the salmon hub of the world. And your lodge is sitting right on the gold mine.
We look forward to helping you create unforgettable memories during your vacation to the Gorge.
