Goins Outdoor Adventures offers amazing trips out of McMinniville, OR, specializing in providing a hands-on adventures targeting Steelhead and Salmon while drifting among the pristine coastal rivers, wild woods and untouched nature that Northwest Oregon is known for.

Fishing aboard Captain Bruce Goins’ 19 ft drift boat, you will find yourself thrown back into a bygone world, with no noisy outboard chugging away behind you, scaring off the fish. She is the perfect vessel for quietly negotiating the areas winding waters, while still providing a stable platform for up to 3 anglers. She is powered by a small and silent Minn Kota trolling motor and by the river itself, making for a truly timeless fishing experience, and comes equipped with everything you will need for your day on the water, including a choice of live bait and lures.

Goins Outdoor Adventures is dedicated to providing a quality fishing experience, and so provides top-of-the-line G Loomis rods and Shimano reels to give you the best chance of bringing in a prize specimen. You will be set up with light spinning rods and light line for pulling in Steelhead, which average 8-14 pounds with 20 pound beasts caught every year. For Salmon fishing Captain Bruce recommends slightly heavier rods, with fish weighing in at 15-25 pounds on average, and brutes hitting close to the 50 pound mark making appearances more often than you would think!

Goins Outdoor Adventures drift boat trips make for the perfect day out for a father and son, or for a few friends looking for that authentic river experience. All trips come with a cleaning and filleting service for anything you want to take away, so you can head home with a trunk full of great fish as well as a ton of awesome memories!
