Salmon Fishing

Salmon are one of the most prized fish of the great Pacific Northwest. Oregon has even named the Chinook, or King, Salmon our state fish. We fish for Coho and Chinook at different times and locations throughout the year.

Steelhead Fishing

Some are surprised to learn that Steelhead are a trout species. While rainbow trout are more colorful and freshwater only, steelhead travel to the sea and return to the coastal rivers to spawn in one of two runs each year – summer or winter.

K Marmo

"My favorite fishing guide and best friend. Kelly Painter is an absolute hoot to fish with. Bobber fishing for fall chinook is my second favorite fishery after winter steelhead. Give Kelly a call and go drain some bobbers on the coast this fall."
