Introduction: My business began in 2002. Since then, I have guided hundreds of anglers on successful fishing trips from Oregon to Alaska. I partner with top companies to provide you with exceptional gear, bait, and boats. Primarily I fish in near Portland, Tillamook and Astoria, on several remote streams and bays. I specialize in salmon and steelhead trips from my drift boat or sled, and also do very well on catch and release sturgeon. I'm lucky enough to have fishing and guiding be my sole occupation since 2002.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I typically charge by the day. The duration of trips is 1/2 day and full day. Half day trips are generally 4-5 hours and must be local (Portland area, seasonal restrictions). Full day trips are generally 8-9 hours. I provide all gear, safety equipment, and bait. Customer is responsible for their fishing license and tags. ODFW has an app that sells one day licenses (smart phone required)

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    The customer contacts me with their name and phone number, and potential dates they would like to fish. Sometimes short notice is ok, some fisheries require months of advanced notice. I take a deposit of $50 per person, and my website lines out my cancellation/reschedule policies.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have an AAS in Fisheries Technology,and hold an OUPV license from the United States Coast Guard. I have nearly 20 years of professional experience as a fishing guide in the region.
