Fish Nets Guide Service

Fish Nets Guide Service is a family-friendly operation based in Springfield, Oregon that that is committed to helping you and your family discover the joys of the outdoors. The crew will take care of everything for you – from the gear to the grub, it has you covered! The owner and operator, Captain Zach Adler, will meet you on the McKenzie River and greet you with a smile. Once you step aboard his drift boat and take your seat, you’ll be hooked – immersed in the beauty of old-growth forests that surround you, the excitement of the next tug on your line, and the relaxing rock of the river’s babbling flow beneath the boat. Explore all that the McKenzie River has to offer and say yes to an adventure you won’t soon forget with Fish Nets Guide Service.

You’ll fish from a 17’ Pavati drift boat that can safely take up to 3 anglers. The boat was made in 2016 and will provide a steady ride to the fishing spots.

You and Captain Zach will be searching for Cutthroat and Rainbow Trout. Using light tackle, you can spin, fly fish, and drift to attract your prey. You can keep the hatchery wish, while all the wild fish has to be released.

Before you come aboard, bring your fishing licenses, snacks, and drinks. The captain takes care of all the equipment and also offers catch cleaning and filleting at the end of the trip.

Book today and join aboard, Fish Nets Guide Service is eager to fish with you.
