Hammerhead Guide Service

Explore everything that the beautiful waterways of Oregon have to offer with Hammerhead Guide Service. And there’s no better way to do it than with a guide that spends every spare minute on the boat. Captain Jason Rice fell in love with fishing when he was a kid and still feels the same passion, more than 20 years later.

Your adventure will take place on a 24’ sled boat, powered by a 225 HP Mercury engine and accommodates up to 6 guests. In order to have the best catch, your captain changes his location throughout the year. From April till the end of October he will take you to the best Salmon fishing spots – Columbia River, Hammond, Nehalem, and Tillamook Bays. Besides Salmon, you’re likely to catch Lingcod, Sturgeon, and Crab.

The captain will provide the fishing equipment and clean your catch. The only thing you need to do in advance is to purchase your license, which can be easily done online.

Captain Jason is not the only person behind Hammerhead Guide Service – “the whole family makes it what it is.” He passed on his love for fishing to his two children and loves to do the same for other families. That’s why he welcomes children on board at a special discount – under half price!

With a captain that loves fishing that much, it’s nearly impossible not to start feeling the same.

Growing up in the beautiful Pacific Northwest I fell in love with the water and fishing as a kid. After High School, I joined the United States Marine Corps and proudly served for 7 years. After serving, I started to live out the dream – fishing and hunting for work. I’m married to a great woman that doesn’t mind me fishing and hunting year round and we have been blessed with 2 awesome kids who share a love for being outdoors. I look forward to meeting new people who want to explore, learn, and have fun enjoying all that our beautiful waterways have to offer.
