I guess this is where Im suppose to camp and was woundering what it is like? How is the launch, is it primative camp spot, is it busy, nearest bait shop, and how long of a run to the Astoria Bridge by boat.
IF i could study my college classes as hard as i study fishing i could be the next Bill Gates. Thanks guys for the replays and keep them coming.
10 miles to the bridge seems kind of far. How far is the Astoria Bridge from Chinook?
Deep River is a nice place to camp, primitive but very open. It is usually very quite and there will be bait available at the shack where you pay to camp a couple of miles down the road. The launce is a single lane and the general rule is not to drop people off on the bank on your return. They want you to line up in the water , come to the ramp when it is your turn, then go get your tow vehicle (it can be very upsetting when it is busy, but others will have a fit if you don't follow this rule), other than the launch it is a nice place and the launch is ok. Remember you MUST follow the channel markers or you will run aground. I cannot stress enough to stay in the markers. It is a 10 mile run from the mouth of Deep river to the bridge, hope this helps you out.
