Take Down Guide Service

Take Down Guide Service specializes in fishing the northwest rivers and coast of Oregon. Captain Bryan is an experienced and knowledgeable guide, who knows all the hottest spots to find Sturgeon, Steelhead, and Walleye in Oregon’s finest rivers.

Step aboard a 25’ Alumaweld Super V Pro boat, which comes powered by twin 150 HP Yamaha engines. The vessel has a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots and can comfortably accommodate up to six guests. Its navigational electronics include Garmin GPS, VHF radio, and a fish finder. There is plenty of room and comfortable seats for everyone. For your maximum comfort on the water, there is a toilet on board.

Take Down Guide Service offers a fun and safe experience for all ages and expertise. The Captain will share his knowledge and teach you the methods that work best for the local waters, such as trolling, jigging, and light and heavy tackle.

Depending on the season, you will be fishing for Chinook Salmon, Steelhead, Sturgeon, and Walleye. The catch-and-release Sturgeon season starts in February and goes through March, when the trophy Walleye season begins and ends in October. June and July are the best time to land the “June Hogs”, which are Summer Chinook Salmon, Astoria Sturgeon, and Summer Steelhead.

A trip with Take Down Guide Service comes inclusive with all the necessary fishing equipment to make your catch possible. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. The fish will be cleaned and filleted after the trip for a ride home. You only need to bring your own food, refreshments, a camera, warm clothes and rain gear, sunglasses, and the licenses.

Oregon Walleye,Salmon and Sturgeon Fishi
May 24, 2021
Currently doing Salmon,Walleye and Sturgeon trips and having outstanding action. Sturgeon is all catch and release right now but we are catching some really big ones and having lots of action. Cold time of year but these fat delicious Walleye have been cooperating on the Columbia river. Some say Walleye is the best eating white fish there is. We have been catching anywhere from 15-60 Walleye this time of year. If you like crab, now is the time. Salmon are running but action is slow. Doing combo trips of Salmon and Sturgeon as of this month. Get in on the action while its good!
