Guides’ experience, how-to knowledge, and handy tips can make a challenging, sometimes frustrating endeavor more exciting, relaxing, and enjoyable.

Please note that many of these fisheries are seasonal, particularly on the Columbia River, and can have special rules in regulations in place. For all the information, including details on licenses, be sure to check out the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife’s website.

With more than 30 years of experience, All About Adventure Excursions’ guides are great choices to help you reel in salmon, sturgeon, or small-mouth bass from the lower Columbia River, to Bonneville and The Dalles’ Dams, and beyond.
