Hazen's Guide Service – Tillamook

Come join Mike Hazen on the majestic North Oregon Coast rivers of Tillamook for your next fishing adventure. His passion for fishing in his personal and professional life led him to his calling as a professional fishing guide, and he can’t wait to introduce you to these plentiful waters onboard Hazen’s Guide Service!

Capt. Mike is an avid lifetime sport fisherman and has over 15 years experience in the aquaculture industry. Getting his clients on as many fish as possible is his top priority, and Capt. Mike prides himself on providing a fun, memorable experience that often leads to a lifelong friendship with his guests.

You’ll be heading out onto productive waters in a 18’ Willie drift boat equipped with all required safety gear, including life jackets for children. She can comfortably accommodate up to 3 anglers, as well as Capt. Mike. He’s CPR and First Aid certified, as well as Coast Guard licensed and insured, so you’ll be in safe hands!

Many factors, including weather, fishing regulations, and recent fishing reports will determine exactly where you’ll be fishing, and which species you can expect to reel in. Your captain will discuss this with you before your trip. We may be fishing anywhere between Scappoose, Astoria, and Tillamook. If you’re traveling during Salmon season, you can expect to drift fish for Coho and Chinook varieties. Sturgeon and Steelhead are available all year round. Capt. Mike will be on hand to teach you the best techniques for reeling in your dream catch!

Your trip includes all rods, reels, tackle and bait, and limited rain gear is available upon request. Capt. Mike loves teaching anglers of all ages and skill levels, so families with children are more than welcome aboard. All you need to bring with you is a valid Oregon fishing license, lunch, snacks, and clothing.

Member since September 2018
I started fishing at an early age and from there it became my primary passion. I spent many days enjoying time on the water with friends and family and I even spent a couple summers commercial fishing for Tuna and Rockfish during my college years. Eventually I earned a degree in fisheries and started a career in research and aquaculture. Still yearning for more time on the water fishing I decided to get my captain's license to become a fully certified fishing guide. Hazen's Guide Service LLC was formed soon after with the help of my lovely wife. Together we run a family owned business that strives to give all of our guests a top notch experience from start to finish.
