Gordon’s Generational Guide Service

Spend the day with Gordon’s Generational Guide Service and find out what the fishing in Grants Pass is all about! Having logged many hours on these rivers, Tyler (Captain Gordo) knows them forwards and back.

These waters are known for world class runs of Salmon and Steelhead– with any luck, it won’t take long to hook into some.

You can expect to do some drift fishing, bobber doggin’ or something more specialized for this area.

Planning a family adventure? Kids are absolutely welcome! If you don’t have a child-sized life vest of your own, be sure to ask if there’s one on board. And, you can’t go wrong with snacks – luckily, Capt. Gordo will have some on board!

Tyler runs a 17’ fully customized Pavati fishing boat with space to accommodate up to 4 passengers comfortably. The boat will be prepared ready with all the essentials. What’s more, this boat is equipped with doors and is handicap accessible by transfer.

You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, as well as all necessary saftey equipment. Tyler will coach and teach passengers of all ages and ability. No fishing skills are required.

Before coming aboard, you will need to buy a fishing license and tags for everyone in your group. This can be completed online, or you can ask the captain for directions on purchasing in-person. Some species are protected and/or require a tag to keep them, we will help you understand what to expect.

You can’t go wrong in bringing bottled water, food, sunblock (non-spray), and sunglasses on warm weather trips OR warm layers, boots and rain gear for inclement weather days. Bottled water will be available. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, but avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles. On full day trips, there will be hot pizza or cinnamon rolls available via the on-board oven.

Go ahead and treat yourselves to a day on the water with Gordon’s Generational Guide Service. #fishinwithgordo

He caught his first steelhead on the Rogue River at the age of 3 and has been ‘hooked’ ever since. Gordon’s Generational Guide Service is a veteran owned company. Tyler served in the US Military for 21 years and took his passion for the outdoors around the world; gaining valuable experience and skills.
