    • No problem at all answering your questions.
      There is summer steelhead in the Portland area in July. I usually leave for the Oregon coast Astoria area around the 15 of July and start fishing salmon. much better fishing then the steelhead in the Portland area. I would be more than happy to get you hooked up with some king and coho salmon in Astoria area if you would like. I am there most of July all of August and part of September. Feel free to call E mail or text

  11. Good morning. I’m thinking of taking my grandson fishing in the Portland or Astoria area for a full day either July 2nd or 3rd. Maximize his chances of catching something, where would you fish and for what species? From my reading it appears Chinook, maybe coho salmon or steelhead are options. I can either fly fish or fish with bait or lures and he would need to bait or lure fish. How many people are in the boat on a full day trip? Thank you

    • Hi there,
      Early part of July I will be fishing in the Portland area, or just East of Portland. We could be either fishing for salmon, or giant sturgeon. Salmon I’m usually trolling. The giant sturgeon we are anchor fish. Giant sturgeon is catche release but fish up to 10′ long. The salmon however you could keep. Feel free to call email or text and I’d be happy to answer all your questions and get a date set for you.

  12. My husband and I are coming to Portland May 2019 and are interested in fishing May 17 or 18, 2019. Is salmon available at that time?

    • yes great time of year for ssalmon in the Portland oregon area.

  13. Hello Marvin, I am looking into coming out around September to take my son sturgeon fishing. This will be our first time sturgeon fishing. Is September a good time? Were hoping to catch a couple really big ones.

    • that is a great time of year. Sturgeon is catch and release only lots of action but have to let them go.

  14. I would like to come next August (2019) to fish for sturgeon. There will be 3 of us.
    Is August a good time for sturgeon fishing?
    Could you also recommend lodging in your area?

  16. Last week four of us went fishing for sturgeon with you as our guide. I would just like to say what a great time we had with you. As a guide you were professional and respectful of us all. You were a lot of fun to talk to and very helpful. I’d go again in a heartbeat. Oh ya…we caught 18 sturgeon that day as well!

    • Thank you so much. It was a pleasure fishing with you and your group I look forward to more trips.

  17. Good morning,

    How many people are on your charter at a time? Also, is it possible to purchase a day lic from you as I am not an Oregon resident or should i just go to the fish and game site for your state?

    Thanks a ton!

    • My boat will fish up to 6 people.  We do have rates if you want a boat privately to yourself..

       It’s a 2 person minimum to  make a trip. However if you are by yourself there are lots of times I have 2 or 3 people where I could join you to a group…
