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 are now fishing the Columbia River through the close on April
9th. We will be fishing Westport, St. Helens, and Portland areas
for this fishery. We move around depending on where the best
fishing is each day. This is your one shot at Columbia River
spring Chinook. It is a very short season, so don't miss out!
Fishing is off to a very good start and will just get better
every day thru the rest of the season.
After the Columbia River closes, we move into the Multnomah Channel and
the Willamette River fishery through mid-May. Depending on the
conditions and where the best fishing is, we move around from the lower
Multnomah Channel to the Portland Harbor and all the way up to the
Oregon City Falls. The Multnomah Channel and the Portland Harbor are
similar to the Columbia River fishing, as it is a trolling fishery. As
we move into Oregon City, we change from trolling herring to back
bouncing eggs and prawns and back trolling divers.
After wrapping up the Willamette River we head back over to the Oregon
Coast to fish the Tillamook and Nestucca Bays along with drift boat fish
the Trask and Nestucca Rivers. While fishing the bays, we troll herring
as we do in the Willamette and Columbia fisheries. The drift boat
fishing is a very hands-on fishery where we, back bounce eggs, back
troll plugs, and bobber and egg fish. This is a very exciting fishery
where the rod is in your hand. It is extremely exciting to hook a 15-20
pound salmon in the small rivers. It is not uncommon to catch a 30
For the 2016 season, large runs on both the Columbia and Willamette
Rivers are expected. These are the best eating fish of the year and we
will start fishing for them before you know it. Don't miss out on the
fun, exciting, and highly sought-after spring salmon fishing we have in

This boat is absolutely HUGE. It is very wide, comfortable, and roomy
and lots of fun to fish from.
If you would like to book a quality fishing trip with one of the best
fish-catching guides on the Oregon Coast call today. If you end up
booking with someone else, but see us out fishing, please wave 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?
