Salmon bite best at first light. Because of this, we start fishing early – often leaving before first light.

What You Should Bring

Fishing License

The most important item is your fishing license with a salmon harvest card. You can buy them online at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. You can also check out the 2022 Sport Fishing Regulations for additional permit and fee information.

Take a screenshot of your license after you purchase, in case you go out of range of phone service!

Food & Drink

Fishing can be an all-day trip out on the water so you better bring along some nourishment. You’ll need to keep your energy up for reeling in all the fish we plan on catching!

(No bananas onboard, please.)


Don’t forget to bring a cooler that you can leave in your vehicle to take your prized catch home in. Fish will be filleted and bagged for you after your trip if you wish.

Sunscreen & Sunglasses

The weather can change quickly in Oregon and it is always smart to be prepared for all weather. Bringing along sunscreen, and polarized sunglasses are highly recommended! 


Remember to pack a camera in order to capture the moment of catching that 40lb Chinook! 

Rain Gear

Fishing out of an open boat can get wet at times so we recommend bringing rain gear during all trips. It is best to dress in layers to stay warm and accommodate the quickly changing weather. This can include: rain jacket, heavier jacket, waterproof footwear, windbreaker, hoodie, fleece, insulated gloves, hat, and heavy socks.

Special Accommodations

If you have any special needs or requirements, I will be happy to work with you to tailor a trip just for you.


Larger groups are welcome and accommodations can be made with other guides if booked far enough in advance. Single people can be placed with smaller groups if available.


If conditions are poor for catching, your trip could be rescheduled to give you the best opportunity for landing the big one.
