Come on out and enjoy a fully guided sport fishing trip down one of many coastal streams this fall. Northwest Drifters is currently booking trips September-December. Join Captain Joshua, an experienced and fully licensed guide, who’ll do his best to help you catch the best Salmon you’ve ever landed.

Fish aboard a 17’ drift boat, made by Clackacraft. This boat has enough room for 3 guests to join. She provides a safe and comfortable ride, which is the only thing you need on the River. Since you’ll be fishing on a beautiful quiet river, there’s no need for complicated electronics. The simpler the better.

There are several fishing spots you can visit, some of them being the Humptulips, Satsop, Wynoochee, Kalama, and the Bogachiel River. You’ll mostly go after Salmon species like Chinook, Coho, and Chum, but you can also catch Steelhead Trout. Spinning, jigging, and drift fishing are the main techniques you’ll use to catch your daily trophies.

Kids under 18 years old are welcome to join, but they have to be under parent supervision. You can release the catch or keep it, in which case the captain will clean it for you free of charge.

Your rods, reels, lures, and live bait are included in the price. You only need to purchase your fishing license and prepare some snacks and drinks.

Join Northern Drifters for an amazing Salmon hunt this fall!

I have been fishing since about fifth grade. Ever since it has become a very healthy addiction. I absolutely love helping and teaching people how to catch Salmon and Steelhead.
