Get ready for a Salmon run of your life with Play N Hooky Guide Service! Team up with Captain Eric Baird and let him guide you to some of the most productive angling spots on Willamette and Columbia Rivers to catch your biggest Chinook and Coho Salmon yet.
There’s a good reason Chinook is also called King Salmon – they often come in impressive sizes and they make the best table fare. Capt. Eric offers full-day trips where you get more than enough time to cast your line and reel in something brag-worthy. You will also get a chance to hunt Dungeness crabs, which are nothing short than scrumptious.
For a memorable angling expedition, you need a strong, reliable boat and your guide has just the thing. His 24’ Riverwild has been tested in the waters of Willamette River and she passed with flying colors, thanks to her twin 225 HP Yamaha engines that keep her a smooth ride.
The vessel is an excellent fishing platform for up to 6 people, and holds all the fishing equipment you need – rods, reels, tackle, and live bait. Drinks are also provided, and if you’d like lunch on board, make sure to mention it when making final arrangements. After you come back from your trip, your captain will clean and fillet your catch for you, so that you can cook and enjoy it for your next meal.
Fishing for spring Chinook and Coho on rivers around Milwaukie is best from April to June, and this is when you can book your trip and head out to your new Salmon adventure. Capt. Eric likes to follow the bite and you will find him in various parts of the country during different seasons, so bear this in mind when booking a trip.
If you’re keeping fishing in the family, feel free to bring your little ones with you, Capt. Eric loves having kids aboard to teach them angling tricks and bring them to fall in love with fishing from a young age.
The only thing you should bring is a valid fishing license and Capt. Eric will take care of putting you on the fish of your life!
