Kevin Larson Guide Service - Central Coast

Kevin Larson Guide Service offers exciting fishing trips along the Central Coast. If you are after a healthy dose of Crab and have always dreamed of landing some of the biggest Salmon in the country, you have found the right place.

This short but eventful season begins in September and goes until the first week of October. You will begin your trip by setting Crab pots early in the morning to get your hands on delicious Dungeness Crab. 


Once the pots are set, you will head out in search of hard-fighting Chinook Salmon. Whether it’s trolling, drift fishing, or any other technique, you will be provided with the finest tackle and gear to make a great catch possible. Lures and complimentary fish cleaning service are also included in the price of the trips.

Your trip will take place aboard a 28’ Alumaweld aluminum fishing boat. Its 200 HP Mercury engine will power you to the hottest grounds quickly and safely, while a full range of electronics and professional accessories will aid your search for large Salmon.

Capt. Kevin operates from various other locations throughout Oregon. If you are curious to see what else he offers, scroll down the page and click on the captain’s name. Happy fishing!

Captain Kevin Larson is an Oregon native who grew up on the water. When he was a young boy, Kevin spent summers and weekends on his father’s boat. He learned everything he knows about Steelhead, Sturgeon, Trout, and Salmon from his family. Kevin took that knowledge and later honed his angling skills as an adult. He is more than familiar with the best places to catch a fish in Oregon and knows how to make it fun. With over four decades of experience in the Pacific Northwest, Captain Kevin will make sure your trip is enjoyable!
