Comfortable & Spacious

28′ Willie Nemisis Sled

This boat is absolutely HUGE. It’s large width provides extra room to move around and makes fishing more enjoyable.
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 2022 Custom 28 foot Willie Nemesis sled with SUSPENSIONS seats that will be very nice when it gets bumpy out in the ocean and on the Columbia and the bays. The boat is powered by 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 2018 21 foot Willies Fuzion sled or a 2020 20 by 72 drift boat in the winter we also use a 14 foot Headwater marine cataraft to get to areas other boats cant get too. We have a boat for every area where salmon and steelhead swim!!!
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.


This is the best shallow running boat on the market today.This will run up in inches of water while on step with the 200 horsepower yamaha jet. It has a 9.9 kicker motor that we use while side drifting and bobber dogging while winter steelhead fishing.
We also use it while back bouncing for fall kings as well as bobber fishing and back trolling plugs. This boat has HEATED SEATS just as my other willie boats do. We can fish up to 4 people out of this boat. This boat has a full level floor just as the other willie boats we fish out of. This boat is just another great boat to have for all the ever changing water conditions we have here in the great pacific northwest. We use this boat in all the Tillamook county tidewater sections and lower rivers that allow gas motors.


This boat will open up more water during the winter steelhead season here in Tillamook county. We will be able to get to sections we were not able to get within. This is a very stable boat for its little size. We will be able to fish 2 clients at a time out of this and we will be able to drag it into the water in many areas where there is not even a put in. We will be fishing in some very remote sections of the north coast with this new fine raft. tHIS boat has a full walk thru design so moving around in the boat will be very easy for me and 2 clients. We look forward to being able to get away on some very scenic productive sections here on the north Oregon coast for winter steelhead!

20 FOOT 2020 Willies Driftboat

Fishing for Oregon Steelhead from a professional guides driftboat is something you need to experience at least once in your life. Driftboats are known to be able to navagate in very shallow waters allowing the oarsman to manuver the boat into the perfect position to reach fishing spots that are hard to reach.
Driftboats are the perfect craft to fish for Oregons Winter Steelhead in the Northern coasts waterways.
This Willies driftboat is top of the line and it is a very comfortable boat to spend a day in. I has a lot of room to fish 2-3 fishermen and it even has heated seats for the colder days.
