Pacific Roots Adventures – Portland

Explore the rich freshwater areas of the Portland area in Oregon with Pacific Roots Adventures! Join Captain Kyle Uptegrove who’ll take you on a journey down Sandy River. He’s been fishing these waters for more than 20 years, so there’s no doubt that he’ll take you to all the secret spots.

You’ll cruise down the river on his 17’ Fishcraft drift boat, which can accommodate up to 3 people fishing at the same time. It’s roomy and quite an experience floating down the local rivers. Bring a few friends and come enjoy your day in these beautiful waters.

Capt. Kyle will provide Daiwa, Shimano, and Lamiglass fishing gear. He’ll provide live bait as well, and you can use artificial lures. Keep in mind that you should buy a fishing license before the trip. If you want to taste the fruits of your labor and prepare some fish for dinner, the captain will clean and fillet your catch for you.

On this trip, you’ll do some drift fishing, trolling, and spinning for Salmon and Steelhead. Don’t hesitate to bring your kids, and make some amazing memories with them! Children of all ages are welcome, and there are life jackets for them, so you can relax and have a great time.

The captain will have coffee on board, just pack some food and drinks so you can stay energized during your trip. Make sure to dress appropriately, bring rain gear and some warm clothes.

All that’s left to do is book Pacific Roots Adventures, and you’re ready to have some serious fun on the waters of Portland!

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."
