 Salmon fishing has been red hot!! Getting limits daily. .  August and September we are fishing on the Columbia River at the Coast. Near Astoria, Oregon. Fishing the infamous "Buoy 10" fishery. With a large run of Coho and Chinook Salmon predicted, it should be the best fishing of the year! Please come enjoy a fun day trolling for Salmon on the Mighty Columbia River.   portlandfishingtrips@comcast.net 

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 (38 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.
