To Justin Doane, there are few things better than being out on the water and breathing in the coastal air. Having spent his youth shuttling between Oregon and Alaska on fishing trips with his father, he now has an in-depth understanding of local ecologies and where the best places are to seek steelhead and chinook, depending on the season. Today, he leads daylong trips out onto the Nestucca, Trask, Wilson, Nehalem, and Salmon Rivers, to name a few, and provides all the equipment necessary for amateur anglers to return home with impressive catches.
We provide customers with some of the best fishing and hunting trips in Oregon and Alaska, with more locations on the way. In addition to our hunting and fishing guide services, we offer white water rafting trips down the Deschutes River out of Maupin, OR. If gear is what you need, we have access to over 20,000 products.
At Natural High Rafting, they lead guided rafting and fishing trips on more than 12 of Oregon’s scenic and coastal rivers, including the Deschutes and Clackamas. The fishing trips also seek out fish by species, often encountering monsters such as steelhead, trout, and coho and chinook salmon.
Though Harborview Inn & RV Park contains a fully outfitted RV park with 16 motel rooms and 30 fully equipped spaces for recreational vehicles, guests don’t spend much time indoors. Instead, they wile away the hours boating in nearby Tillamook Bay, eating s’mores at the Saturday night campfire, or catching dungeness crabs at one of two public crabbing piers.
To help crabbing expeditions go off without a hitch, the innkeepers rent crab rings and sell bait, as well as share expert crab-handling tips including ideal spots and ways to eat your catch. Hungry visitors can carry their freshly caught crabs to the onsite crab shack where they can cook them in a huge pot of boiling water.
Having reeled in 25 years of experience as a licensed fishing pro, Steve Roberts shares tricks of the trade during half-day and full-day fishing trips, welcoming avid anglers and beginners alike onto his fully equipped fishing vessels. Throughout the year, Steve and company track down seasonal targets. Winter trips focus on chinook, or winter steelhead, and autumn trips chase after coho salmon—a feisty fish notorious for fighting under water and starting bar brawls on land. No matter what the target, every trip with Steve includes all the necessary gear and an endless stream of expert advice.
