OREGON'S WATERWAYS

We live in the Willamette Valley, where year-round salmon, steelhead and sturgeon fishing are just a boat ride away. We'd love to show you how good the fishing is on the beautiful streams and rivers right in our backyard.

 

Oregon's Coast Range is the home of the hottest seasonal fishing experience. Chinook and Coho salmon, steelhead, and sea run cutthroat trout combine to create a fishery full of fresh opportunities.

 

The rivers of the Cascade Range flow cold year-round and provide our clients with several options for fishing a long summer season. Rainbow trout and Chinook salmon highlight the catches on these beautiful and typically sunny trips.

 

The Oregon Coast is an angler's paradise. Biodiversity abounds in coastal estuarine areas and encourages exploration, experimentation and recreation. We know the coast and love to show it off with unique trips.

Steelhead (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

Called the “fish of a thousand casts," the steelhead of western Oregon are the ultimate "fish-on" experience, and we'll make sure you don't have to cast a thousand times to meet these silver bullets.

 

Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha)

The "king" of salmon species provides fishing fit for royalty. Reel-smoking runs, huge jumps and tired arms are the norms when you pursue these treasures. Happy bellies and sweet dreams soon follow.

 

Coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch)

"Silver" salmon are the perfect complement to our Chinook fishery, since they put an aggressive, wild edge on pure power. Even seasoned anglers are impressed with their insane acrobatics—and not least when our boats are doubled up with splashes all around! 

 

Coastal cutthroat trout (Oncorhynchus clarkii clarkii)

Hidden in the rainforests of the Coast Range run rivers with a secret my grandfather's generation decided not to pass on to the crowds. Unbelievable fishing with light tackle on lonely waters makes Coastal cutthroat one of our favorite secrets.

 

White sturgeon (Acipenser transmontanus)

Prehistoric creatures of the deep, White sturgeon are the largest freshwater fish in North America. They provide unbelievable battles that are long-lived and energetic, even exhausting.  Come feel the power of prehistory.
