Hammer Down Guide Service

31804 McLoughlin Drive
Philomath OR, United States

Hammer Down Guide Service provide high-quality fishing and boating experiences in the Pacific Northwest. The business is operated by a duo of fishermen who love the shallow waters of the local rivers and have a genuine love of the fish tagging at their fly rods.

Guides Tyler and Geoff have guided the rivers of Willamette Valley, where Salmon, Steelhead, and Sturgeon can be caught year-round. This is what you will be catching, too!

Your guides will provide you will all the fishing gear you need, including conventional and fly fishing equipment, lures, and an icebox for your catch. They will even serve snacks and drinks on the trip, and when it’s over, you can have your fish cleaned and filleted.

Hammer Down Guide Service will take you out on a 16-foot Koffler boat equipped with a GPS and a fishfinder to help you locate the best and most productive grounds. It also has life vests, a first-aid kit, flares, and a CPR-trained crew, so you know you will be in safe hands.

Hammer Down Guide Service encourages you to bring your child along for a fun day on the water. They will be able to learn about the incredibly rich local fisheries, observe the natural beauty of Oregon, and bond with you!
