*Now Booking Columbia & Willamette River Fishing Trips For  Salmon, Steelhead & Sturgeon  - Call  Larry @ 503-575-8755 or send an email to portlandfishingtrips@comcast.net  for reservations
We are currently fishing for the hard fighting White Sturgeon. They will be found in good numbers November through March.  It is catch and release fishing only. Retention is not allowed. We often land as many as 30 fish on a Portland fishing trip for Sturgeon. Doubles and triples are a common occurrence on good days. This is one of the most action packed fisheries of the year. So don't miss out.  My boat has a top and heater to keep you warm between hookups. This can make a big difference in whether its a fun trip or not. Many guide boats are open sleds with no heater or cover. We fish the Portland area close to downtown and the airport. Making it convenient if your visiting Portland and want to get out on the water for some fun. I supply everything for the fishing.  Including Licenses. Come enjoy a fun fishing adventure!

I am very devoted to the fishery and will be booking trips 7 days a week.  It is important to hire a guide who is on the water often.  A full time fishing captain.  Fishing is an art and shouldn't be left to mere chance. I have fished and lived in the Portland area all my life (40 years) and have over 30 years of experience on the water,  portlandfishingtrips@comcast.net  

On all my trips I supply high quality fishing gear and bait. I take pride in being sure everything is ready to go. I really enjoy seeing people catch trophy fish.  The Excitement! The Adrenaline Rush! It's Awesome! I try to make sure people feel safe, comfortable and have a good experience. I'm a fun & friendly person who enjoys the art of fishing and having fun on the water.   

Please come enjoy a fun personalized day fishing around Portland, Oregon.  Give me a call or email to reserve a date.   This is a picture of my son and I with his catch of the day!  I provide all Fishing Rods,  Reels, & Tackle.  I work with other top local guides.

 With the ever-changing weather conditions in Oregon, I find it necessary to keep people dry, warm, shaded, comfortable and smiling.  The extra effort it takes me to keep the boat running straight with a canvas top is well worth the effort to make your experience a fun one.  My top and side curtains can be put up, down or away in under 5 minutes. Note that on good weather days, sometimes the top may be left at home.
