Buoy 10 Book Release

Buoy 10

by Larry Ellis

Every year between August 1st and Labor Day — just 31 days — 100,000 anglers from around the world make the pilgrimage to Buoy 10 on the Columbia River to fish for the millions of salmon that funnel through this 14-mile-long stretch of river. However, between the crowds, the challenging water and so many fish, Buoy 10 can be intimidating so where do you begin?

Finally, there’s a comprehensive book on this world-famous salmon highway that runs between Oregon and Washington. Written by one of the most respected and accomplished anglers for the area, Buoy 10 features: detailed maps, boat launches, techniques, rigs (including tying steps & photos), equipment, safety, timing, species, weather, tides, boats, accommodations, campgrounds, tackle shops, marinas — everything an angler needs to know to find success at Buoy 10, home to the world’s largest salmon run.
