Kayak Fishing Oregon just finished another Hobie First Cast with Next Adventure last Saturday near their Scappoose, Oregon location. One of our clients Darrel ended up catching his first ever Chinook Salmon during our salmon class. I think his smile says it all!

Kayak Fishing Oregon just finished shooting a kayak fishing episode for Cody Herman's TV show "Day One Outdoors"as well as a recreational video for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. Thankfully the fish were biting. Episode airs June 7 on Comcast Sportsnet
The Spring Chinook fishing is starting to heat up near Portland. I landed this 12# Chinook trolling a prawn spinner through an underwater boulder field and found this salmon waiting. These Hobie kayaks are so quite I caught this salmon in 8 feet of water. If you're interested in hooking into the Northwest's most prized fish, please contact me here and set up a trip.
A huge thanks to Daiwa and Mark Landry of Maschmedt and Associates for your sponsorship with KFO and our upcoming Hobie First Cast kayak fishing classes with Next Adventure. We just received 12 Daiwa Coastal Aird reels and Daiwa Accudepth rods for salmon kayak fishing classes. For more info message me here at KFO or contact Next Adventure for dates.
A huge shoutout to Yakima Bait Co. for all the support they're showing to myself and kayak fishing industry. Not only does Yakima Bait bring us the worlds best tackle, but these are some of the coolest guys in the industry. Look for lots more exciting stuff happening between us in the next few weeks.
A special thanks to Angler Innovations and their amazing products to help anglers catch more salmon. These Dick's Sure Spin herring helmets and Long Linners are just a few of their amazing products available to anglers around the world.
I wanted to give a special thanks to Konezone flashers for their support over the years with the kayak fishing in the Northwest. Look for these during the Spring Chinook and the buoy 10 fisheries.

I was recently invited on to ESPN Radio Seattle's Outdoor Line to discuss the upcoming Spring Chinook fishery. I always love when I get to share my experiences kayak fishing for these huge Spring Chinook.
Had an amazing time fishing with clients near Depoe Bay, Oregon. Not only was the weather near perfect, we caught lots of fish. I always love it when we catch a nice Lingcod on the first drop down to bottom. We also saw numerous other wildlife including Grey Whales, Bald Eagles and a small Octopus. These clients traveled from Seattle, WA and Bend, OR for a day with me on the salt and left very happy with lots of fresh fish. The spring is the best time of year for big Lingcod and hard fighting rockfish, so book your trip with me soon.
