Hello, my name is Daniel St. Laurent and I look forward
to being your Salmon and Steelhead fishing guide. I've been fishing in the
most popular rivers in the Northwest all my life and many of my friends,
family and people I met on the rivers talked me into being a full-time
fishing guide. I've officially been a Washington and Oregon Salmon and
Steelhead fishing guide for 9 years now.

We will be fishing summer kings and ocean salmon starting the second
week of July. We will be fishing Nehalem Bay or the lower Columbia River
for the summer kings, which ever area is fishing best. On calm days we
fish out in the ocean off the Columbia River or Tillamook Bay chasing
acrobatic Coho and line peeling kings! This is normally a fun action
NOW BOOKING SUMMER KINGS, OCEAN COHO-KINGS, BUOY 10 SALMON, AND FALL
Till The Last
August 1st kicks off the WORLD FAMOUS BUOY 10 salmon fishery out of the Astoria
area. We normally fish in the ocean off the Columbia River for the first half of
August due to the fact that the main volume of fish are staging off the river
feeding on everything they can before they start their journey up the river. By
mid August we are primarily in the river because the fish are starting to come
into the river in large numbers by then. Our forecast for 2017 is nearly 600,000
kings and almost 400,000 coho. So we should see almost a million fish for 2017
Buoy 10 season. We get to keep any king 7 days a week this year and one hatchery
coho per day or 2 hatchery coho and no king for a 2 fish per person per day
limit. This is a great action packed month of fishing, so don't miss out! We are
only at Buoy 10 thru September 4th.
It’s never too early
to call and get
your spot booked.
seats book early!!
After buoy 10 we head home to start our TILLAMOOK AND NEHALEM BAY fall king
salmon fishery. For Tillamook this season we get a wide open fishery in the
ocean from Sept 2nd thru the 30th, this means we can keep any coho and any king
when fishing in the ocean. We spend most of our time in the ocean in September
when conditions allow. Fishing in the ocean also allows up to drop crab pots.
These fall kings are the biggest salmon of the year with kings that reach the 40
pound class and the average being 20-30 pounds. We also see many coho in the
high teens. Don't miss out on the hardest fighting fish of the entire year. We
fish the bays through October for these giant kings.

hello. We're easy to
find in our brand new
boat. It's a 2016 28
foot Willie Nemesis sled
with 250 Yamaha 4 stroke
and 9.9 Yamaha kicker.
When fishing the rivers around the Tillamook Bay area we will be fishing
out of a 2013 20 by 72 or a 2015 18 by 60 Willie drift boat. Please
to see more photos of all three boats.
Please wave or honk if you see us on the river. It's likely we'll be in
the process of landing a fish so if we're not able to wave right back
I'm sure you'll understand. I've spent as many if not more hours on the
water here than any other guide you'll find, as I fish almost everyday
of the year and I truly doubt if you'll see any other fishing guide who
works as hard as I do or puts as many hours in as me. Catching Salmon
and Steelhead in the most popular rivers of the Northwest is my passion
and my life. It's a sport that I'd love to share with you.
I fish every possible
day and I know where the fish are. For that reason, on the days I am not
guiding I still fish so I know what is going on for the next day of being on
the water. I fish year round from the ocean thru the bays and up the rivers,
I do it all.
If there is a
steelhead or salmon out there I'm trying to catch it. I love being on the
water teaching people my love for the outdoors and showing them a great time
in the process.
We will be fishing from a 2016 28 foot Willie Nemesis sled with 250
Yamaha 4 stroke and 9.9 Yamaha kicker; it can fish up to 6 people. On
the small coastal rivers we fish from a 2013 20 by 72 or 2015 18 by 60
Willie drift boat. I can fish up to 3 people. All boats are equipped
with heated seats!
The reason people go fishing
with me is to catch fish and to
have fun. To relax, breathe in
the fresh ocean air, and to
catch fish. To enjoy the
scenery, to learn the best
fishing secrets, and to find out
where the fish are. To
photograph all there is to see
and to be a part of the great
outdoors in the Northwest. And
did I mention to catch fish?
