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.

current fishing reports, photos
and info on current openings.

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 packed fishery.

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

your spot booked.

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.

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 CLICK HERE 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. 503-440-5188.



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?
