Fishing in the wintertime you may be asking what can we fish?  Portland Oregon fishing can and will be fun with lots of action.

Portland Oregon fishing guide Marvin’s guide service will have you fishing in the comfort of a 27′ Covered and heated boat!

In the wintertime, quite a few of our trips take place right in the heart of downtown Portland, on the Willamette River.

One of my most popular things to do in November, December is sturgeon fishing in the heart of Portland Oregon just Minutes from the Portland Airport.

Sturgeon fishing has plenty of action with sturgeon ranging between 4 and 7′ long. However, sturgeon fishing is catch and release only. Fishing sturgeon in the Portland Oregon area is very common to have 15 to 20 fish days.
If you’re looking for an opportunity to keep sturgeon, we do get a short window in January in the Hood River Oregon area on the Columbia River.

All sturgeon fishing on the Columbia River in January is weather depending.
Fishing keeper sturgeon is a very short window, so if you want a chance to keep a sturgeon book soon. 503-314-5087

Update the 2024 Columbia River catch and keep sturgeon is closed. Sturgeon fishing on the Columbia River is still open for catch and release seven days a week.

November is also a great time to Short two-hour drive from Portland and head to the Oregon Coast Astoria Oregon area.

Here I will offer Dungeness crab trips. Crabbing in November is awesome where limits of 12 crab come very easy. Feel free to call me today and talk to me about winter fishing in the Portland area or let’s talk crab in the Astoria area. You can read more about my Dungeness crab fishing trips here. Crab cooking is available here at the marina for an additional charge.

Of course, Portland fishing offers spring salmon, which generally starts right in the Portland area around March. So, it’s never too early to book your fishing trip.
