Columbia River Gorge
The Columbia River Gorge is home to one of the largest Chinook and Coho Salmon migrations globally, with over a million salmon returning to the river’s tributaries in some years, making it the most abundant fishing spot on the planet. The river’s serene environment also provides an excellent opportunity for leisurely days with friends, admiring the breathtaking scenery and the magnificent salmon swimming through.
