If you are planning a trip to Portland and are thinking of catching some fish while your here then look no further.   We specialize in local fishing adventures.  We will HOOK YOU UP!  King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Steelhead and Sturgeon are our specialty.  Come fish from our safe, comfy, clean and organized fishing boats. Portlands King and Coho Salmon season has come to an end for 2018. Spring King Salmon will begin in March. For the remainder of 2018 we will be offering Catch and Release Sturgeon fishing trips.  On these trips we anchor the boat and fish baits on the bottom.  Sturgeon pull hard often ripping line from the reel!  A fierce battle!  An angry Sturgeon darting side to side, jumping and peeling line always gets the heart pumping.  Very fun and exciting.  We work out of a private marina in Portland on the Columbia River.  Private parking, an ice machine, fish cleaning area and nice restrooms dockside are what you can expect with us.  Hayden Bay Marina is close to downtown and the airport. Making it convenient if your visiting Portland and want to get out on the water for some fun.  Everything for the fishing is provided. We can even sell fishing licenses on board the boat. Making it even more hassle-free. Come enjoy a fun fishing adventure!
Owner and guide of Hook'em Up Guide Service (Larry Kesch Jr.) is very devoted to the fishery and will be booking trips 7 days a week during peak seasons.  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. Larry has fished and lived in the Portland area his entire life and has over 30 years of experience on the water.  Please email preferred dates, # of people and questions to  portlandfishingtrips@comcast.net 
Call or text Larry anytime @ 503-575-8755

On all our trips we supply high quality fishing gear and bait. We take pride in being sure everything is ready to go. I really enjoy helping people catch trophy fish.  The Excitement! The Adrenaline Rush! It's Awesome! Being a part in someone catching their first Salmon or Sturgeon is what I am so passionate about. I strive to make sure everyone feels safe, comfortable and having a good experience.   Our goal is not to just catch fish but to have fun and share a few laughs together as well. It's great for visitors of Portland to see the city area from the river.  It's a whole different perspective. Big Tanker Ships and Tug boats and barges working are some of the interesting things you will see.  People say fishing with me is like fishing with a friend.  And I wouldn't want it any other way.    

Please come with us on a fun adventure of fishing and boating here in Portland. Here is a great picture of my daughter and I with her biggest King Salmon! Our whole family loves fishing and the outdoors. We will provide all the fishing equipment, knowledge, bait & tackle. Whether your a beginner or an avid fishermen you'll enjoy a trip with us. 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.  If we are already booked on your preferred date.  We can point you in the right direction for a knowledgeable professional fishing guide service.

Private trips for any size group are available.  We are not allowed to take more than 6 clients+guide per boat at any given time.  This is a Oregon State Marine board requirement.  No exceptions.  We offer multiple boat trips for larger groups.  We like to guide groups of 5-6 anglers whenever possible.  If you book 5 or more seats, chances are you will have a private trip with us.
