Reel Deal Fishing Adventures

Reel Deal Fishing Adventures truly lives up to its name. Join and meet Captain Michael, who grew up in this part of the state, fishing the many rivers that he guides his customers on today. Having the local knowledge of the area puts his customers in the best possible area to catch fish that day. One thing is for sure, Capt. Michael will always meet you with a smile and guide with a positive attitude.

The boat is very versatile, allowing you to fish in big water like the Columbia or Pacific Ocean and in small rivers, such as the Lewis River or Cowlitz River. This is a 24’ River Wild jet boat that accommodates up to 6 guests. This boat is powered by twin 250 HP Yamaha engines and features new navigational electronics and safety gear. The boat is also wheelchair accessible.

You can choose between a half day and a full day trip. Depending on your group’s size, there’s also an option to share the boat with other anglers or rent the whole boat to yourselves. Either way, you’ll be targeting Chinook Salmon, Sturgeon, Steelhead, and Walleye.

You’ll fish with the highest quality gear on today’s market. Capt. Michael covers and prepares all of your equipment and he’ll also clean the catch that you can keep. Just make sure to bring your fishing license and pack some snacks and drinks.

Catching fish is always Capt. Michael’s priority, but getting to know you, your friends or your family is very important to him as well. Reel Deal Fishing Adventures welcomes anglers of all skill levels on his boat. It’s time to catch your first!

I started my guiding career in Southeast Alaska at the age of 16. Fishing has been my passion for as long as I can remember. Even after I spend day after day on the water fishing I have yet to get tired of it. There is always something to learn no matter how long you have been at this, that is my favorite thing about fishing. I fish many places throughout Oregon and Washington, but my favorites are the places I grew up fishing as a young boy.
