Salmon, Sturgeon, Tuna and Bottom Fishing Charters and Fishing Guide Service – Astoria, Portland, Newport & the Columbia River

Thank you very much for stopping by lancefisherfishing.com. It’s because of you and a passion for fishing that allows me to spend days on the water as a fishing guide. Over the years I’ve been blessed to host thousands of fishing charters and guided fishing trips, both private and corporate. So whether you’re inexperienced, seasoned, young, or old, you’re welcome on my boat.

We have three locations to serve you:

The great thing for fishermen here in the Pacific Northwest is that we have year around runs of Salmon, Steelhead, and Sturgeon. Add on ocean options for albacore tuna, halibut, lingcod, rockfish, bottom fish, and crab, and you have numerous options to chose from. Some months are certainly better than others, but to enjoy such an abundance of different types of fishing trips is certainly special. Some of the top runs on the continent exist on the Columbia River and within the states of Oregon and Washington. Because of this, you have many choices from which to choose. I want to make sure that you end up with the trip or trips that best suit your needs and desires.

I’ve spent over a decade developing a guide/charter service that people can really enjoy. Equipment matters, and my family and I have gone to extensive lengths to make sure that my clients are fishing in and with the very best equipment available. From the state of the art 25′ Willie Raptor, to the top of the line G. Loomis rods and Shimano reels- great fishing equipment, along with the available fishing makes for great days on the water together.

So whether you’ve come to me as a corporation looking to entertain clients, or a private individual or group simply looking to fish, my goal is to make your days on the water with me as turn key and productive as possible.

Have a look around, and feel free to contact us with any questions or to book a date.

Thanks, and Tight Lines,
