It's 2021, and we are more than ready to get back out on the water. We hope you are too! 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 Oregon 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.
Our Spring Salmon season is in full swing and will continue into July.  Spring Chinook Salmon & White Sturgeon combo trips are available in the Spring. The fishing is often action packed. Sometimes 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.  Very fun and exciting! 
The Summer season (July & August) we fish the Oregon coast and the Portland area. We operate from the Hammond Marina at the coast, and the Hayden Bay Marina here in Portland. Both are on the Columbia River. Free parking, nice clean heated restrooms dockside, ice machine, and fish cleaning area is what you can expect with us. Everything for the fishing is provided. 
Owner and guides of Hook'em Up Guide Service Larry Kesch Jr. and son Colby Kesch are 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 the highest quality fishing gear and bait. We take pride in being sure everything is ready to go. We even sell fishing licenses onboard the boat to make it even more hassle-free.  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 me on a fun adventure of fishing and boating here in Portland Oregon.

Our 26' custom fishing boat is very versatile.  It has a removeable top and windshield to keep you comfy.  Really nice comfortable seating for up to 6 clients.  We fish with the best gear and tackle on the market, you will love it!  It even has a Keurig coffee maker onboard!

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.  Ask for pricing to "book the boat" if you would like to catch all the fish.  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.
