Schmidty’s Guide Service

Northeast Columbia Boulevard
Portland OR, United States

Enjoy the day targeting Salmon and Steelhead on one of northwest Oregon’s beautiful rivers. All trips will take place aboard a 17 ft Alumaweld drift boat and you will be using light tackle to get the most of the awesome fight from these fish.

All gear, bait, and tackle is provided. Bring your camera because you never know what you will see along the way: Deer, Elk, Bald Eagles, and Martins are all common visitors to these parts, and of course you’ll want to snap your catch of the day!

About the Captain

Aarron Schmidt
Portland, Oregon, United States
Member since April 2016
I was born and raised in Oregon. I caught my first steelhead at the age of 3 and first salmon not too long after at the age of 5. My father and I spent every weekend and some weekdays on the rivers. He taught me everything he knew, and I perfected it. I started guiding part time during my senior year in high school, and am now doing it full time in Oregon and Alaska. I love to be able to share my knowledge and the experience of being in the outdoors with everyone I can.   I am an experienced guide in Oregon and Alaska. In addition to being a licensed and insured guide in Oregon and Alaska, I am USCG licensed and have valid CPR and First Aid training.
