Over 20 years experiance
Chris has been fishing the Columbia River since the late 1980's. He has taken his passion for what the Pacific North West has to offer and made it available to everyone. Each trip with Chris is an unique experience. He enjoys teaching others the tactics he uses and if your lucky you just may get some of Barb's famous breakfast burritos! Within the first five minutes with Chris you will see it's his goal to make sure everyone is comfortable and ready to have a fun experience. Chris runs trips from Astoria all the way east to the Washington border.
Angling Oregon is much more than a guide service. They also have an online store where you can buy the same gear Chris uses daily. In 2019 Chris McMahon and Angling Oregon became one of the newest additions to the Wraptor Custom Rods Pro Staff. With Jay Johnstone's innovative design and the Pro Staffers input they have come up with some of the best custom rods money can buy. From the start Angling Oregon has had a YouTube channel to share their passion from the water. They even offer capturing your trip on video to be kept as a life ling memory. So give Angling Oregon an opportunity "Let's Fish!"
Columbia River Guided Trips
McNary Pool Sturgeon
Columbia River Walleye
Columbia River Salmon
Starting the first of the year, the McNary pool is generally open to the retention of keeper size Sturgeon. Once the quota is full you can still continue to catch and release oversize fish. With fish upwards of 10 feet in length available there is no telling what to expect. Sturgeon is truly a "Bucket List" fish for most. The large powerful fish give people a memory of a life time.
The Columbia River Walleye is pure river gold! Besides the fact they are some of the best tasting fish a person can eat, they are plentiful in the Columbia River. We have quickly become know for some of the best Walleye fishing in the country. If you want an opportunity to catch a true trophy hop in the boat during the spring and catch some true monsters!
Winter Steelhead on light tackle can be an absolute blast. Some days we break into the double digits with fish in the net. However the elusive hatchery can be a tough one to find. Our Steelhead are hard fighting adrenaline pumping airborne fish. Winter Steelhead is depending of ODFW regulations but is usually December-February.
Salmon fishing in the Columbia River has always been our favorite. We chase them from Astoria in the fall all the way to the Washington state line in the east. We start our Salmon fishing in March/April and continue throughout the year. Depending on the time of the year we also run trips in the Willamette River. Each year is dependent on the current regulations.
