Deep-sea fishing is like raising children: both require patience, superior breath-holding skills, and a pocket full of worms to entice cooperation. Catch your next meal with today's Groupon: for $150, you get a four-hour steelhead-salmon-fishing charter for two from High Grade Fishing Adventures in Keizer (a $300 value).
High Grade Fishing Adventures enchants both experienced casters and first-time fishers with seasonal romps up and down the fish-filled waterways of Oregon. The winter months deliver steelhead salmon in droves for guests to reel in during four-hour guided excursions. Making their way aboard drift boats or flat-bottom jet sleds, guides navigate the chilly waters of the Clackamas, Nestucca, North Santiam, and Wilson Rivers, lavishing their clients with warm coffee, heaters, and essential gear such as life vests and decorative cashmere koozies. During their jaunt, participants master the art of side drifting while wielding G.Loomis rods equipped with Shimano reels and mistletoe lures for unexpected mermaid encounters.
