Guided Fishing Trips In Oregon,
Washington And Alaska

OVER 25 YEARS OF FISHING EXPERIENCE
IN THE NORTHWEST

"Who Says Fishing Guides Can't Have Fun
And Catch Fish Too?"

I have spent the last 25 years fishing Oregon and Washington waters, along with offshore crabbing and bottom fishing when weather allows. Waters fished are the Columbia River, Willamette river, Clackamas, Sandy, Nestucca, Necanicum, NF Nehalem, Trask, Wilson and Kelchis. I grew up in the outdoors with my parents taking my brother and I camping and fishing a lot! My father taught me to hunt and fish with his true passion for the outdoors. It's probably why I enjoy seeing young children catching their first Salmon or Steelhead.

NOTICE:

  • I am fishing in Alaska June 16 to August.
  • I will be coming home and going to Astoria thru the month of September.
  • I will be booking Buoy 10 dates while I'm in Alaska. The dates are filling fast so please book early this year. It is going to be another excellent year to experience this fishery.
  • September Coho and crabbing trips in Astoria is a plus. 3 fish limits are common and a chance at taking home some delicious Dungeness crab too!!

With my time on the water at such a young age I feel this gives you a much greater chance of catching fish with Play N Hooky Guide Service. Watching ospreys diving into the water, the cry of Eagles on the banks, early morning sunrise and fog lifting off the waters are just a few things you can expect to see while fishing with me.

WHAT WE FISH FOR

Salmon: Common types of salmon are Chinook, king, sockeye, red, Coho, silver, chum, dog, pink, humpy, upriver brights, Atlantic Salmon, and fall Chinook. The Northwest is World famous for Salmon runs that feature large numbers of fish and HUGE Fall Chinook that return to the Columbia River and to Tillamook Bay areas. This is a very popular fishery and the good seats fill fast so call early for the best fishing dates.
Sturgeon: The most well known are the white sturgeon, green sturgeon, trophy sturgeon and keeper sturgeon. The Columbia River and Snake River hold trophy Sturgeon that are up to and over 100 years old. Landing one of these monsters is a job not everyone can do but if you feel you're up to it contact Play N Hooky Guide Service and book a trip now.
Steelhead: The winter run (winterrun) and summer run (summerrun) steelies make steelhead fishing a year 'round event and Steelhead are a prize fish to catch, fight and also to eat.
