Thank you very much for stopping by lancefisherfishing.com. It’s because of you and a passion for fishing that allows me to get to spend days on the water as a fishing guide. Over the years I’ve been blessed to host thousands of fishing charters, both private and corporate. So whether you’re inexperienced, seasoned, young, or old, you’re welcome on my boat.
We have two locations to serve you:
Astoria, Oregon– Home to Buoy 10, world class Salmon fishing and sturgeon fishing. This location also serves Tillmaook and Nehalem Bay, plus all the rivers that feed these two bays.
Portland, Oregon– From here we fish the Willamette for Spring Chinook, Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River, the Columbia River Gorge and locally the Clackamas and Sandy Rivers.
The great thing for fishermen here in the Pacific Northwest is that we have year around runs of Salmon, Steelhead and Sturgeon. Some months are certainly better than others, but to be able to enjoy such abundance is pretty 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 will have many choices from which to choose, but I want to make sure that you end up with the trip or trips that best suit your needs and desires.
I’ve spent the last 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- these luxury’s 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 me by phone at 503.680.6809 or contact us with any questions or to book a date.
Thanks, and Tight Lines,
The 2018 Columbia River Spring Chinook Forecast is out and it appears that we're much improved over last year's actual returns. Columbia River fishing managers are expecting 166,700 Spring Chnook to be headed East of Bonneville Dam. Combine this number with projections for the Willamette at 53,820 and Cowlitz Rivers and we're looking at 220,520 fish that will enter the …more »
