He changed up our location the day before (comparable distance away) because he knew where the fish were biting. Sure enough, I had a good day on the water, caught my limit (steelhead) and everyone in the boat got fish, and had a fun day in the process. He was an honest guide too, not trying to cheat me and very knowledgeable about fishing in the region. I'm really glad I decided to do this during my limited time here in Oregon. Would use him again if I ever came back to the area.

What You'll Get

Red sky at night is a sailor’s delight, but red sky at morning means the ship's been steered inside a volcano. Cast into lava-less habitats with today’s Groupon: for $199, you get a five-hour fishing trip for two from Fish Hunters Guide Service (a $400 value). Customers must already have a fishing license.

Led by lifelong water-lover captain Travis Choquette, Fish Hunters Guide Service leads fishers through the scenic lower Columbia River to snag piscine prizes. On the day of their scheduled trip, anglers load into a 23-foot, custom sled boat and zip off to fish-filled tributaries, scouted out by Choquette several days in advance to maximize catching opportunities. The skipper pre-assembles custom tackle combinations, ideal bait, and high-quality Lamiglas rods, providing trip-goers with all the equipment they need to reel in gill-breathers and feral Swamp Things. After the excursion, Choquette plumbs the depths of his encyclopedic mind to offer helpful tips on preparing and cooking common catches, including chinook, steelhead, and salmon. All tours will be scheduled in the best possible slots, with some tours taking two parties out on the water, providing an opportunity to make new friends or engage in grim hook-offs with previously made fishing nemeses.

About Fish Hunters Guide Service

Fisherman Travis Choquette's work begins long before he ever steps foot on a boat. The expert angler, who owns and runs Fish Hunters Guide Service, prepares for every trip weeks in advance. He researches current river conditions and checks records from past fishing seasons, which helps him uncover the hiding spots of salmon, sturgeon, and other species. Finally, he crafts homemade bait that's designed to attract each targeted species like a magnet attracts whatever magnets eat.

All of this work pays off on Mr. Choquette's 25-foot, Alumaweld Columbia Ride Master Vee. Aboard this vessel, he takes small groups out into the Columbia River, where they can go after chinook, coho salmon and steelhead in the summer and fall or winter steelhead in colder months. Or the anglers may target what Mr. Choquette considers the region's most sought-after fish: the spring chinook, a salmon that averages 20 pounds. Groups often find success regardless of what's at the end of the line. Mr. Choquette's online gallery reveals the beaming faces of many anglers, some holding catches that stretch more than half their body lengths.
