Rob's Greenwater Guide Service

Always wanted to battle that world-famous freshwater favorite, the Steelhead? Experienced guide and charter operator Rob Gerlitz invites you to come aboard Rob’s Greenwater Guide Service and get ready for battle! With over 14 years of freshwater angling experience under his belt, Rob knows exactly what it takes to hook this feisty, hard-fighting fish, and he can’t wait to show you the tips and tricks he’s picked up along the way.

Rob offers guests the chance to join him on board his charter for a day out on the various rivers that surround this part of Bay City, located in Oregon. Rob knows this area like the back of his hand, so he’ll follow wherever the fish are biting to take you to the hottest freshwater spots around! This means that, depending on when you visit, your location may change – but no matter where you go, you’ll be on fish!

You’ll be fishing from your guide’s 20’ Koffler drift boat, perfectly built to accommodate up to 3 guests and to tackle these freshwater fishing grounds. Fishing from a drift boat allows guests a truly hands-on, up-close-and-personal angling experience, and you’ll all be able to fish at the same time. This vessel is decked out with walk-around seating, in-floor fish storage boxes, and all the necessary safety gear. Children aged 11 and up are welcome – just bring life jackets!

Your guide specializes in going after Steelhead, but you’ll also have the chance to hook a variety of Salmon, too – Chinook and Coho are most commonly found here. Rob loves taking anglers of all skill levels out to experience these fishing grounds, and he’ll be on hand to help you bait your hook, cast off, and try out a variety of techniques (most commonly drift fishing) to land your dream catch.

Your trip includes top-of-the-line lightweight fishing gear and tackle, as well as lures. You’ll also have access to plenty of hot coffee. Come aboard Rob’s Greenwater Guide Service for some action-packed fish-fighting fun in a beautiful location!

Rob has been working as a professional guide for over 14 years now. He pursued this career out of pure passion, and loves using his years of experience and knowledge to introduce guests to these plentiful waters. When it comes to the fish he likes to target, it's all about Steelhead – he loves how feisty it is, and how it provides some serious rod-bending action for each angler. Rob's favorite part of being a guide is the excitement he sees in novice anglers, especially when they're fighting Steelhead for the first time – he loves that he gets to be a part of this, and to help his guests fight and hook this fish.
