Don't go fishing... GO CATCHING!

Crabbing Trip

Posted by on Oct 31, 2018

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of having More Good Day Oregon follow me out on a crabbing trip. I was very excited to have a Tv crew follow me around on a crabbing trip.

In case you don’t know what More Good Day Oregon is it’s a show that follows right after Good Day Oregon.

End of 2017 Columbia River fishing Season

Posted by on Oct 23, 2017

Well, the 2017 Fishing Season is winding down.

2017 definitely was an exciting and different season for me. We started out in January fishing for keeper sturgeon on the Columbia River above Bonneville Dam. Keeper sturgeon would be from 38 to 54 inches in length. Weather was terrible and we had to cancel the first two weeks of the season.

End of 2015 fishing season

Posted by on Dec 1, 2015

I’m  wrapping up the 2015 fishing season. It’s been a great season we started out in the springtime catching king salmon on the Columbia River and then we moved into the Willamette River around the St Johns area and had a very good April and May catching lots of spring king Salmon. We were very fortunate they had the Columbia River open in June for the summer kings. I  myself was taking my trips right around the I 205 bridge on the Columbia River  and had great success. Also in June we were throwing in an occasional catch and release monster sturgeon trip. from Salmon to sturgeon April, May and June was excellent fishing. In July I did something a little different, I headed down to Astoria oregon to do some fishing

Columbia River Salmon fishing 2015

Posted by on Jun 3, 2015

Do you remember how good salmon fishing was last August and September?

Columbia  River Salmon

Columbia River Salmon


If not, salmon fishing was off the hook. It was totally awesome. With Forecasters saying this year will be just as good if not better, it has me looking forward to a great season of chasing King and Coho Salmon.
Marvin”s Guide Service will start fishing for fall king salmon in mid-July in the Pacific Ocean out of Astoria, Oregon. Then as the salmon move into the Columbia River, which will open up August 1 for salmon fishing, we will start fishing from Buoy 10 at the mouth of the Columbia River all the way up to the Astoria Megler Bridge. We launch our boat from the Port of Hammond Oregon. I will continue to follow the salmon up the river and, by early part of September, I will be fishing right around the I-205 bridge on the Columbia River up to Bonneville dam.
So, if you’re looking to fill your freezer was some salmon give us a call and I will be happy to hook you up.

Deep Sea Fishing Astoria Oregon

Posted by on Feb 24, 2014

If you’re looking to fill up the freezer, or if you just want to get spoiled with some hot fishing action, then you need to do some fishing on the Oregon Coast. Venturing out onto the Pacific Ocean brings a peaceful seclusion from hoards of anglers often found on Oregon’s Rivers, and, oftentimes, non-stop fishing action. Oregon’s coastline is home to a variety of fish, but we’re mostly fond of Rockfish and Lingcod. These fish like to cling around deep reefs and rocky outcroppings which provide shelter and an abundance of food. Rockfish and Lingcod are also some of the best tablefare in the Pacific Ocean. Baked, fried, poached, it’s hard to go wrong with these fish. Fishing for Rockfish and Lingcod is a fairly simple affair. If you have done much bass or perch fishing on lakes and ponds, a lot of what we use will look familiar, just on a much larger scale. These fish are aggressive feeders, so bait is generally not necessary. They do live down in some deep water, so heavy jigs are sent down to the ocean floor to entice the toothy Lingcod. Rockfish are attracted to small shrimp flies, which we tie onto the same leader as the Lingcod jig. It is not uncommon to catch two and even three fish at the same time. While out on the ocean, there is a lot of sightseeing to do as well. You can see the coastline of Oregon from the Ocean to get a whole new look at steep cliffs and rock formations. It is uncommon to see whales migrating and dolphins might even swim by for an appearance. We are excited to start offering guided trips for Rockfish, Lingcod and even Halibut this year. Give us a call now to book your trip for some awesome fishing along the Oregon Coast.
