Meet Your Fishing Guide, Chad Wiest

As a fishing guide based in Eugene, Chad is a two hour drive from some of the finest fishing Oregon offers. He has spent time on a long list of rivers, giving you alot of options to choose from. Living in Eugene and having family in Portland keeps him mobile. He is willing to go the extra mile to get you on some excellent fishing. Chad’s love for fishing and the outdoors started at an early age which continues to grow today. The wonder of what the day will bring with every sunrise, the new friends, and ever changing conditions keeps his job interesting.


      His passion goes beyond just catching fish. The smile and joy people experience are what motivates him to work hard, pay attention to detail, and get fish on the line. Safety is his first priority, he is a Coast Guard Captain, CPR/ First Aid certified, licensed through the State of Oregon, and fully insured. Although there is nothing he would like more than to help you battle the trophy of your dreams, having a fun and memorable trip is his ultimate goal.
      Chad is also passionate about educating his clients. He has in depth knowledge of the marine environment and captains a whale watch zodiac in the summer out of Depoe Bay.  He has had people from 8 to 80 years old enjoy a day on the water with him and enjoys anglers of all skill levels. Chad isn't one to hold back secrets or information on the locations he fishes and hopes to educate you on the fishery with his patient, laid back, teaching style. One trip with Chad and you will be hooked. 

He looks forward to seeing you on the river!

"Built for big bodies of water, the Nemesis will handle almost anything you throw at it."
Willie Boats

"This boat is so stable and comfortable, you to ride in it thave o believe it."
Capt. Chad Wiest

This 28' Willie Nemesis is a state of the art vessel that has ample room for 6 people plus crew. Rides out to the fishing grounds can be quick when powered by a Yamaha 300hp outboard. A top of the line electronics package helps us get on the fish and stay on them. The vessel is equiped with redundant safety measures. AIS is transmitting your position at all times and an EPIRB is also placed at the bow. It also features self bailing guttered decks, multiple bilge pumps, very high sides and an extemely safety minded Captain at the helm.

Under each seat is dry storage for your clothing and lunch.
This boat is set up to fish. It was built with Safety, comfort, and enough power to get out to the fishing grounds in a hurry.
