Columbia River Fishing Adventures

The team at Columbia River Fishing Adventures takes pride in fishing and giving their clients the best experiences possible! This is a family-owned and operated business run by a father and son duo.

Captain Buddy Dupell grew up on the rivers in the Pacific Northwest and has been guiding for over 19 years. Following in Capt. Buddy’s footsteps is his son, Captain Travis Dupell, who has been guiding for 3 years.

Hop aboard their 26’ River Wild aluminum fishing boat, perfect for cruising the waters of the Columbia River. She can accommodate up to 6 guests and is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. There’s also GPS and Fishfinder to get you on your targets and an ice box to keep your catch fresh.

You’ll explore either the Columbia or Willamette Rivers in search of some of Oregon’s most sought-after fish. Depending on seasonality, you’ll target and go home with delicious Chinook and Coho Salmon, Steelhead, Sturgeon, and Walleye.

Your captains provide all the gear you need to troll and bottom fish successfully. They also bring along a selection of lures and are happy to clean and fillet any keeper catch at the end of the trip.

All you’ll need to bring with you is a valid Oregon fishing license and any drinks and snacks you’d like to have onboard. Explore the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and its productive rivers with Columbia River Fishing Adventures!
