If you have always wanted to explore the natural habitats of Steelhead and Salmon, give Dylan Gorman’s Guided Fishing a try. This company specializes in fly and conventional fishing trips providing their guests with a safe, fun, and educational day on the water.

Get your hands on the finest Coho and Chinook Salmon, as well as wild Trout and Steelhead in the Willamette River. Try your hand at fly fishing or gear fishing, using bait, bobber, plugs, divers, dry flies, or soft hackles. Nymphing and swinging are also among the methods you will be able to try.

Your guide, Dylan is a fish biologist, which allows him to make every trip an educational one. He will gladly educate everyone aboard about the rivers you are fishing, as well as their ecosystem and inhabitants. Even though Dylan might not guarantee a lot of action, he will work as hard as possible to ensure you have a successful trip.

Dylan Gorman’s Guided Fishing operates a 17’ Clackacraft drift boat, fresh on the water in 2018. This vessel has enough room for up to 3 anglers to fish in comfort and style. On board, you will find all the necessary fly fishing equipment, as well as conventional rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, water, and hot coffee. A complimentary fish cleaning service will also be available.

I have been fishing my entire life. I have worked as a charter boat deckhand, saltwater captain and a freshwater fishing guide over the last 6 years. I now focus on freshwater fishing trips for Salmon, Trout, and Steelhead (fly and conventional fishing) from my Clackacraft drift boat. I also teach fly fishing classes for Oregon State and Watershed Fly Shop.
