PORTLAND

Portland has a number of places to fish nearby. The two major bodies of water we fish include the Columbia and Willamette Rivers. Depending on the season, we fish different sections of the rivers. They produce trophy salmon (coho and king), steelhead trout, sturgeon, and walleye.

TILLAMOOK BAY

The Tillamook Bay is famous for much more than just cheese, it also provides some of the best fishing Oregon has to offer. The bay is fed by a number of different rivers, making it an ideal place for fish to live and breed. It’s also an added benefit that you can go check out the cheese factory!

OREGON FISHING SEASONS

SPRING FISHING CHARTERS

Our Spring Salmon season starts mid March and continues into July. King Salmon & White Sturgeon combo trips are available in the Spring. The fishing is often action packed, some days with multiple rods HOOKED UP at once. Some days we have to really work for those bites. Sturgeon are catch and release only.  An angry Salmon or Sturgeon darting side to side, jumping and peeling line always gets the heart pumping.  A strong powerful and fierce battle.

SUMMER FISHING CHARTERS

The Summer season we fish the Portland and the coastal waters near Astoria. All other seasons we work out of the Hayden Bay Marina in Portland on the Columbia River. Only 10-15 minutes from Downtown. Free parking, clean restrooms dockside, ice machines, and fish cleaning area is what you can expect with us. All fishing gear is provided.    We work with other top local guides. If you have a large group in need of multiple boats, we can put it all together for you.
