Second-generation guide Vance Marshall supplies anglers with spinning and bait-casting outfits to catch trophies from steelhead trout to chinook salmon, depending on the season. Trips launch from one of several meet-up points along the McKenzie River, typically Leaburg Dam or Greenwood, Bellinger, or EWEB boat ramps. Vance's boat accommodates up to four fishermen, and all are advised to wear weather-appropriate clothing and bring lunch. Buyers may fish other rivers, such as the Siuslaw, Umpqua, or Willamette, for an additional fee.

One of the largest species of Pacific salmon, the chinook is prized among fishermen for its vivid color and distinct claw-like mouth. And like most animals, it's ready to fight anything come spawning season. Not one to be deterred, second-generation guide Vance Marshall takes anglers out in his 16-foot aluminum drift boat to catch these mettlesome chinook, as well as steelhead trout and other seasonal species that run up the McKenzie, Siuslaw, Umpqua, and Willamette Rivers. He also equips seasoned outdoorsmen with spinning and bait-casting rigs before journeying into the waters framed by Oregon's verdant evergreens himself.
