The Columbia River is the best fishery in the Pacific Northwest for salmon, steelhead and sturgeon. Book your trip to secure your spot.


The Columbia and Willamette rivers are home to some of the finest runs of salmon, steelhead and sturgeon anywhere in the world. The Columbia river receives water from tributaries in seven states as well as British Columbia, Canada. It is the fourth largest river by volume in North America. The Columbia river watershed extends from the Canadian Rockies in British Columbia to the Pacific ocean near Astoria, Oregon.

When you book with me, my goal is to provide you a great day of fishing. The Columbia, Willamette, Astoria and Garibaldi fisheries are world-class. It would be a privilege to share that experience with you. I offer corporate trips for client entertainment or team rewards, as well as private group outings for sports fishermen of all ages.
