I fish the Columbia River from the Willamette River to Priest Rapids Dam, as well as some of Washington’s premier southwest rivers.
You will be fishing from a 23′ Willie Predator Boat powered by Yamaha motors for a quiet, dependable ride.

You Will Need To Bring:
- License – You can purchase a one-day license at sporting goods stores, Fred Meyers and Bi Mart local convenience stores. Make sure the clerk gives you the catch record card with your license. (Sometimes the person behind the counter does not know what you need.) You can also follow the links provided here to purchase a license online for Oregon and Washington Fishing. I can also sell you a license on the boat the day of the trip if we are fishing on the Columbia River, I will let you know what license you will need.
- Rain-gear – Also, dress in lots of layers, you can always take off a layer if it warms up. The wind almost always blows, especially while fishing the Columbia River or one of the bays. Dress for a wind chill of 20 mph and know that the wind will be blowing across water that can be in the 40’s or 50’s. I usually start my day wearing a sweatshirt, hat, coat and or raingear. If you don’t have raingear don’t buy it for the trip, I have gear on the boat.
- Lunch and Beverages
- Cooler for your catch
- Sunny days I’d recommend sunscreen and maybe a hat.
