2 Net Fishing Guide LLC – Portland

Go fishing with 2 Net Fishing Guide and discover the superb river and lake fisheries that Oregon has to offer! Captain Ken Burns had decades to explore different bodies of water in the area and he knows exactly where to go to find the best fishing action.

Whether it’s Sturgeon or Salmon, Shad or Smallmouth Bass you’re after, your guide will do everything in his power for you to have a productive trip. Depending on your fishing preferences, you can choose from a range of specialized trips he runs year-round. You can test your hand in light and heavy tackle, as well as spinning, while Salmon responds best to trolling.

Your ride and fishing platform for the day is a 19’ Duckworth aluminum fisher with twin 100 HP Yamaha engines. The boat can accommodate up to 4 anglers and take them to the secret fish hideouts thanks to the onboard navigational electronics.

If you love river fishing, you’ll explore Columbia and Willamette rivers. For fans of lake fishing, there’s also a variety to choose from, including Clear, Timothy, Billy Chinook, and Estacada lakes.

Capt. Ken will provide Penn and Abu Garcia rods and reels, and you’ll have an assortment of lures to tempt your prey. When you come back to land, your guide will make sure that your catch is cleaned and filleted for your convenience.

Children are welcome to join you on your trip, as long as they’re 8 and older, there are life jackets on board for everyone. All you need to bring is a valid fishing license, some snacks, and favorite drinks (no alcohol), and your fishing adventure with 2 Net Fishing Guide can begin!
