Pacific Roots Adventures

If you’re up for a fishing adventure in the rich waters of Oregon in the Nehalem area, Pacific Roots Adventures is the best choice! Captain Kyle Uptegrove has been fishing the rivers here for over 20 years, so you can be sure that he knows all the best fishing spots.

Explore the natural world on the 17’ Fishcraft drift boat. It can accommodate up to 3 people who can all fish at the same time. The boat is perfect for exploring these freshwater areas, and you’ll surely enjoy your time on board while floating down these rivers.

Capt. Kyle will have Shimano, Daiwa, and Lamiglass equipment for you, and you’ll use either live bait or artificial lures. Make sure to buy a fishing license before the trip. If you have a productive day and want to take some fish home for dinner, the captain will be happy to clean and fillet your catch.

You can go on a crabbing expedition with Capt. Kyle and look for some delicious Dungeness crabs! On other trips, you’ll do some drift fishing, trolling, and spinning for Salmon and Steelhead. Feel free to bring your kids, since there’s no minimum age on this charter. There are life jackets for everyone, so you can relax and make some great family memories!

There will be coffee on board, but make sure to bring some food and drinks so you can stay refreshed throughout the day. You should dress according to the weather, and bring adequate rain gear.

Visit Nehalem and enjoy the rich natural world of Oregon by fishing with Pacific Roots Adventures!

Captain Kyle is a local to the area. He has been fishing since he was a kid, and he loves it, as well as teaching people how to do it. Seeing how excited people get when they catch their first fish is one of his favorite things in the world. "I have been fishing the Oregon Coast and the Portland area for over 20 years. It has been my passion for years and I love to see people catching their first Salmon and Steelhead."
