Come prepared to
catch the big one
As one of Oregon’s top fishing guides, we want your trip to be as pleasant and memorable as possible! So the following items are recommended. All tackle and fishing gear will be provided – but feel free to bring your favorites if you have them.
On the Southern Oregon coast, climate is always changing. Wear multiple layers to stay comfortable in any temperature.
Gold Beach sees about 80 inches of rain per year, so waterproof clothing is essential! A jacket is recommended at minimum.
Capture every moment and bit of scenery on the river. We are equipped to take a photo of you with your catch at the end of the trip.
No matter where/when we’re fishing, chances are high we will get some sun. Some polarized glasses are highly suggested!
Oregon is filled with diverse nature & wildlife, many of which we’ll encounter on the outing. Make sure you don’t miss any of it!
Food & Drink
