Reel Em Up Fishing Adventures

Reel Em Up Fishing Adventures will take you to Columbia and Williamette rivers as well as the beautiful coastal rivers and bays. Chinook, Coho, Steelhead, Sturgeon, Walleye, Lingcod, and various bottom fish will all be the target of your bait. Join Captain Rod and have a blast on these waters!

You’ll fish from a covered, heated 22’ Alumaweld aluminium boat that can take up to 5 anglers. Whether a master angler or a complete novice, either way, you’ll feel provided for. To that end, the boat is equipped with reliable navigational equipment - GPS, a fishfinder and a wireless trolling motor. This will help you steer, and set the right pace.

Captain Rod has been angling for 25 years, and will use all his tactics to help you get that fish. He wants to deliver hassle-free fishing experience to groups of friends and families with kids. He’ll provide rods, reels and tackle, lures and live bait. If there’s a piece of equipment you’re fond of, feel free to bring it along – there’s plenty of room onboard.

Onboard Reel Em Up Fishing Adventures, you’ll get to try spinning, trolling, jigging, or drift fishing, use heavy or light tackle, whichever is more to your liking. You’ll join captain Rod for great fishing in the beautiful rivers of Oregon. Just to be sure, check out the seasonality calendar before you head out. The captain will also be more than glad to help out with this.

This charter supports catch and release, but travelers can also keep the catch. However, bear in mind that during a certain time of the year, you can only keep hatchery fish. Captain Rod will make sure that all your angling is according to law. Also, make sure to take care of the fishing and crabbing licenses beforehand.

To muster up your strength, bring snacks, beverages, and a cooler to store the cleaned and filleted catch. Put on cozy clothes, and bring a camera to capture all the fun in the open!

Captain Rod likes seeing other people catch fish as much as he likes reeling in one himself. The excitement and thrill of the chase is what drives him to provide professional service. After taking a fishing trip at the age of 15, he got hooked on angling, and ever since has been fishing in the area, taking others outdoors and having fun while doing it. He'll provide help and information, so you can focus on pure fishing.
