Miller’s Sportfishing welcomes you to the home of some of the best Salmon and Steelhead fishing in the world. Join Captain Jim, who has 35 years of fishing experience in the Pacific Northwest. What started as a hobby quickly turned into a passion, and soon became a decades long profession. With an experienced guide by your side, you’re bound to have an amazing experience on the water.

You’ll be fishing on a 21’ Alumaweld that will carry you wherever the fish are. The boat is powered by a 150 HP Mercury engine and reaches a speed of 35 knots. There’s enough room for 4 anglers to join, so bring your family or fishing buddies along. Besides navigational electronics, the boat also features a wireless trolling engine and fishing equipment, so you’ll have everything you need, ready before you arrive.

Choose the trip depending on what you want to target. One adventure will take you to loads of Steelhead and the other brings different types of Salmon to you – Chinook, Coho, and Sockeye. An occasional Sturgeon is possible as well. You get to keep the catch within regulations and the captain will clean and fillet it for you free of charge.

All fishing equipment is covered by the captain and included in the price. Don’t forget to purchase your fishing license and pack some snacks and drinks for the day.

Bountiful rivers and streams are waiting for your hook. Join Miller’s Sportfishing and take your prize!

I grew up in the heart of Steelhead and Salmon country in the Pacific Northwest. What started out as a hobby in my younger years has grown into a love of being on the water. I welcome all fishing levels from beginner to seasoned professional. I believe we should all help each other to become better anglers. I’m happy to answer all questions and give you the advice so you can become a better angler on your own.
