I live on the columbia river but rarely fish from a boat, friends who live in Washington, we both have our own state tags....... can we fish from the same boat?

On the Columbia, the answer is Yes. You can also launch your boat from WA or OR side of the Columbia to fish the Columbia.
OR Regulations Page 72
WA Regulations Page 47

As long as you are both properly licensed, and the boat is too, I wouldn't see any reason why not. But I bet that @Irishrover could answer this one better than I.

You can fish not only the Columbia, you can do the same thing in the Ocean from Cape Falcon to Leadbetter Point. 00Swede is right about this. I used to moor my boat in Warrenton (Oregon) and take friends from Long Beach Wa. fishing at B-10 and in the Ocean all the time.
