Lance Fisher Fishing Guide- Salmon, Steelhead and Sturgeon

2017 Fishing Schedule- Oregon, Columbia River and Washington

I’m looking forward to another great year fishing. Many of you have fished with me long enough to be good friends and I’m thankful for the continued support and fun over the years. We’ve expanded our fishing offerings this year to be able to give our customers the best fishing in two states. While I will be running most of the trips on the calendar, I do have some fantastic help that allows my clients to fish on dates that I’m already booked and even fish areas that I used to fish, but no longer travel to.

2017 Trip Pricing

Trip pricing will remain the same as 2016

Lance’s 25′ Willie Raptor: $225 per person

Many of you know, I only like to fish four per day. I do make exceptions (up to 6), but don’t want anyone to feel I’m jamming my boats full. I charge a fair price in order to keep the number of people in my boat to a comfortable number.

Partner guide power boats: $200

Lance’s 17×54 Drift Boat: $250

I only fish two per day in my drift boat. If we need more seats, I just get however many number of my guides to help out.

Partner guide drift boats: $225
