What's included

  • Guests will fish from a custom 24-foot North River Scout equipped with a full top and heater and captained by Ponciano, who has intimate knowledge of key areas of the Columbia and its tributaries. Your guide will customize your trip based on where you want to fish, from the mouth of the Columbia River to the Bonneville Dam and the top tributaries.
  • This deal is valid through September, so subscribers can also fish for summer sturgeon (May-July), fall kings in August, and a combination of fall kings, silver salmon and sturgeon in September. Take home the fish you catch, as long as they're in season and in regulation.
  • You can also save more with these options: take the trip with a friend for $189, regularly $400, or rent out a private boat with a group of six for $549, regularly $1200. Bring your own food and drinks to enjoy during the trip.
Travelzoo Tip: Depending where you fish, you will need a Washington or Oregon State Fishing License and Catch Record Card. You can purchase a Washington license here or an Oregon license here.

Nothing really stood out about the trip.

It was extremely cold and windy which made for a miserable time. He ended the day early and allowed us to re-book at a later date. I would like to think when you book with a guide that they would check to see if the fish are in the system before taking 6 people out for a boat ride. He tried many spots and techniques. It seems to come down to compteting the trip by the end of the month to satisfy the voucher. When you have to drive 5 hours in one direction you would like to be able to come home with some fish, especially when you do it two different times! Once being frozen ( in an open boat, no cover to break the wind) and not seeing a fish on the finders is not what you expect from a guide.

Great guide, catching fish!

the river, the views

After 4 fishless biteless hours, we could have moved or tried something different. 6 rods, finally 1 fish. At least the last couple of hours we could have tried something different.

I felt that Dan put forth a great effort to catch fish, although the fish did not cooperate to well. being a retired charter captain I know what fishing is and it does not always involve catching. all in all a good day on beautiful river.
