Hammer Down Guide Service

Hammer Down Guide Service provides 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 will take you out on a 17’ Koffler airboat 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.

Your guides will take you fishing the rivers of Willamette Valley, where Salmon, Steelhead, and Sturgeon can be caught year-round. This is what you will be catching, too!

They will provide you with 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.

Don’t hesitate to bring your kids along for a fun day on the water and make some amazing new family memories with them. They will be able to learn about the incredibly rich local fisheries, observe the natural beauty of Oregon, and bond with you!

Explore the prolific waters of Willamette Valley with Hammer Down Guide Service and have an unforgettable time!
