Nathan also offers you the possibility to fish from a heated jet sled.

You can join Capt. Nathan in a number of beautiful locations such as the Columbia River, the Cowlitz River, and the coastal streams of the Olympic Peninsula. In winter and early spring he will help you target Steelhead, or you can fish for King and Silver Salmon in the fall. You may keep your catch and Capt. Nathan will clean and fillet it for you.

West Coast Anglers provides rods, reels, tackle, and everything else you need. Be sure to bring a valid Oregon fishing license and the necessary tags or endorsements relevant to your target species.

Come aboard and enjoy fishing like a pro in some of the most beautiful places on the West Coast!

    Wynoochee is one of the best rivers on the Olympic Peninsula for Summer and Winter Steelhead Fishing. Pronounced WHY-noo-CHEE, the name of this river means ‘changing or shifting,’ due to its ever-changing path. The Wynoochee River is born out of the beautiful Olympic Mountains in the Olympic National Forest and runs near the small town of Montesano in Western Washington.

Capt. Nathan was born and raised just minutes from the world famous Cowlitz river. He caught the fishing bug at an early age and devoted all of his free time to the Piscatorial Pursuits. At the age of 18, he packed his bags and headed to Alaska to start his guiding career. That following fall, West Coast Anglers was born. For the past 11 years he has been guiding full time in Washington and Alaska. Capt. Nathan prides himself on being one of the hardest working guides in the area.
