Obsession Fishing Guide Service

Obsession Fishing Guide Service invites you and your family to have a fun day of fishing on the waters around Astoria, Oregon. Guide Bill Woods strives to make each trip memorable and one that is all about you and your family and friends having fun out on the water.

Salmon fishing is great here, and is what attracts fishermen from all over the state when they flock down to Oregon for some amazing fishing. Other species you can target include Steelhead, Shad, Sturgeon, and Walleye.

Stepping aboard Bill’s 26’ Alumaweld Columbia performance fishing boat, you will enjoy the functionality and the space offered. The vessel was built in 2014 with a capacity for 6 persons and contains a fighting chair, a livewell, an icebox, and Mustang PFD life jackets for safety. Powered by twin 225 HP Mercury engines, the boat is fast and reliable. It features a GPS and a fishfinder, as well as a wireless trolling motor.

Guide Bill is sponsored by Okuma Inspired Fishing so you will have all top quality fishing gear available including rods, reels, and tackle. He also provides live and artificial baits, and fish cleaning services at the end of the trip.

But that’s not all! This generous guide will serve donuts and coffee for breakfast, and on the full day trips, you’ll also get sandwiches, chips, soda, and water for lunch and snacks. Talk about customer-centric!

Book a trip with Obsession Fishing Guide Service and have an unforgettable fishing experience in Oregon!
