As most people know, a fish out of water is awkward, and causes a terrible stench when accidentally left in the glove compartment. Coax in a fresh catch with today's Groupon: for $99, you get an eight-hour fishing trip, which includes a picnic-style lunch, from Great NW Rivers Guide Service (a $200 value).

Lifelong fish charmer Paul Ambrose leads land-dwellers in exciting excursions on the Columbia River and its surrounding tributaries to capture salmon, steelhead, sturgeon, and other delicious water denizens, depending on the season. His 23-foot Koffler jet-sled boat has a wide floor to accommodate groups and is custom designed to attract piscean creatures with a giant picture of a pretty she-sturgeon painted on the bottom. Great NW provides aspiring anglers with prime fishing equipment, including Lamiglas rods, Shimano reels, and Power Pro fishing lines, as well as a midday lunch of chips, sandwiches, and drinks. Ambrose and his team are so confident in their trawling talents that guests who don't catch anything can go on their next fishing venture for 75% off, or receive the equivalent value in eel kisses.

Reviews

Past clients of Great NW Rivers Guide Service rave about their experiences in online testimonials:

  • During my trip I ended up hooking and landing my first sturgeon ever, which was awesome! The fish measured out to 54 inches, it was HUGE! One of the things I will always remember about the trip was the outstanding service! You treated everyone on the boat that day just amazing. – Brandon
  • …I can’t wait to get back on the water. Your experience and knowledge of the river and where to catch the fish paid off. Looking forward to fishing with you again. – Brian

Great NW Rivers Guide Service

Among the world's largest species of freshwater fish, the white sturgeon can grow to several hundred pounds yet still glide through swift currents thanks to a thick layer of muscle beneath its bony exterior. Guide Paul Ambrose is an expert on the species, sharing his knowledge on full-day and half-day fishing trips for these and other trophies of the Columbia or Willamette Rivers, such as steelhead, king salmon, discarded Stanley Cups, and kokanee salmon. The CPR-trained guide welcomes passengers aboard his 23-foot Koffler jet-sled boat, which he keeps fortified with Shimano reels, Lamiglas rods, and Maxima line. He's also lent his expertise to anglers on television, contributing to an episode of Angler West TV.

Book ahead, but Mr. Ambrose knows what he is doing. He got us on the fish and we had a great time!

Would highly recommend of using Paul Ambrose's Great NW Rivers Guide Service. He knows the Columbia River and how to fish it. Prides himself on putting clients where the fish are.

Fishing was done very well, but it was a little hard coordinating the trip. Very knowledgable and made it a good day of fishing.
