Fishing

Fishing is big down here in Seaview, Ilwaco and Long Beach.  Fishermen enjoy fishing for sturgeon at the mouth of the Columbia River.  You can also fish for salmon, halibut, tuna and bottom fish off the shores of the Long Beach Peninsula.  There are many charters available in Ilwaco and Seaview.  There is also a large crabbing industry in the area.  Don't forget to pick up your fishing license at the Seaview Mobil Gas Station.  We also carry all the fishing supplies you will need to have an enjoyable fishing trip.
