1 Arm Bandit Guide Service specializes in fishing the Columbia River and its tributaries. The charter company is based in Vancouver, Washington, and is run and operated by Captain R.J. He is a professional guide with over 13 years of experience in the local water.
Take a ride aboard his 25’ North River aluminum fishing boat, which comes powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. It has a maximum cruising speed of 42 knots and can comfortably take up to 6 anglers. The vessel is wheelchair accessible and is equipped with top-notch navigational electronics, which include Furuno GPS and fishfinder, as well as a VHF radio.
There is a wireless trolling motor for a quiet ride to the fishing grounds, an anchoring system to stay rooted, and an ice-box to keep your catch fresh during the day. You will fish some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, going to spots such as the Columbia River Gorge, so make sure you don’t forget your camera as this can be an unforgettable trip!
There are year-round opportunities for fishing in the Pacific Northwest for a multitude of species, such as Salmon, Steelhead, Shad, Sturgeon, and Crab. The crew specializes in drift fishing, trolling, and light tackle.
Every trip comes inclusive with all the necessary fishing equipment to put your catch together. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, and lures. Once caught, your fish will be cleaned and filleted for a ride home, where you could try it for dinner later or just fill the freezer.
What is more, Captain R.J. won’t leave you starving – you will be offered drinks and snacks during the trip, so you are only responsible for your fishing licenses.
Experience fishing in Columbia River with 1 Arm Bandit Guide Service and have a memorable time!
