Caleb's Guide Service - Tillamook

For Salmon and Steelhead fishing on the northern coast of Oregon, look no further than Caleb’s Guide Service. You can find Caleb fishing the coastal streams and rivers of Tillamook from September through March, whenever and wherever the bite is best. Come aboard with him for professional guidance and good company!

You will fish aboard a 20’ Alumaweld powered by twin 115 HP Mercury Optimax engines. This craft comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, and all the gear you need. Water and soft drinks are available on board and you may request to have coffee ready and waiting for you, too. This boat has room for up to four passengers and children are welcome.

Many of northern Oregon’s coastal rivers and streams are home to excellent Salmon and Steelhead fishing. Some would say that the best winter Steelhead fishing can be found on the Wilson River, where both hatchery Steelhead and wild Steelhead pass through at different times. Your guide Caleb has been fly fishing since he was a kid and will use his knowledge to help you target these hard-fighting fish in the most effective way possible. During autumn, you can also catch Chinook and Coho Salmon in these waters using a variety of techniques such as jigging and trolling.

Caleb’s Guide service provides fly fishing equipment and spinning gear by Shimano and G. Loomis. You may keep your catch and Caleb will clean and fillet it for you. Please note that fishing conditions vary and your guide may recommend a different location depending on where the bite is best. You can also fish with Caleb in Astoria and Portland for a variety of species throughout the year.

Bring your Oregon fishing license and come aboard for a great catch!

I started fishing When I was a young kid. The first thing I learned to do was fly fish then as I grew older I learned more and more techniques. Now I use my knowledge to teach others how to have a great time on the water. I love to help people catch there first Salmon or steelhead. Nothing is more rewarding than that. The opportunity of catching the fish of a lifetime every time a new fish is on the line has me coming back for more and always will.
