Northwest Fishing Adventures 17'

If you’re in the Portland area fishing might not be the very first thing that came to mind. Luckily, there are great angling opportunities to be found on the Sandy and North Coast rivers. Captain Herman Fleishman has been running charter boats in Portland for 6 years and knows just the right spots to give you a successful day of fishing.

His 17’ Clackacraft drift boat is ideal for getting to the best spots here. The cozy craft has space for 2 people to join aboard for a day of great action on the water.

When you’re out on his drift boat he’ll take you out to try to tempt some Spring Chinook Salmon and Steelhead to join you aboard. He tends to use heavy tackle on this trip, with drift fishing being his favorite technique.

All of the required fishing gear is provided by Captain Herman. Okuma, Lamigrass, and G-Loomis are the brands that he most commonly opts for when he is out fishing. The fish that you catch will also be cleaned as part of the package. Just make sure you book a fishing license online before you head out

All you need to take along with you is your favorite food, drinks, and suitable clothing. Apart from that Captain Herman has everything else sorted and you only need to prepare yourself for a superb day of river fishing.
