Coastal Rivers Driftboat Fishing Trips
Our Coastal Rivers Driftboat trips run different rivers on the Oregon Coast, the river choosen changes with the fishing and current water conditions. The coastal rivers fished include the Siuslaw, Alsea, Smith and Siletz.

Equipment
The classic high-rise rocker bottom McKenzie drift boats we use have been improved upon over the past 80 years for use on Oregon's rivers.

Not only can they run whitewater, but in the hands of our able guides these stable boats can quietly and precisely maneuver into the smallest nooks and crannies to find the allusive big ones.

Each drift boat carries 3 people, 2 fly fisherman and 1 guide.

Top quality equipment is supplied by us, but in the event that you have a lucky rod or certain setup that you prefer we encourage all fisherman to bring along their favorite equipment, whether it's fly or spinning gear.

We will schedule all our trips for the times that work for our guests. If you want to fish late or early that's fine with us, but we will always give our suggestions for best results.

Don't forget to bring the essentials such as rain gear, an Oregon fishing license, sunglasses, hat, sunscreen and beverages.

About Our Guides
Our River Guides are all friendly, full-time professionals with years of river experience. They graciously share their local area knowledge with our clients, providing local background and historical information of the river. Not only are our guides knowledgeable and friendly but also some of the greatest oarsman and fisherman the area has to offer.

Oregon's Coastal Rivers get their start in the Coastal Mountain Range that stretches the length of the Oregon Coast.

Beautiful Crystal Clear Water flows westerly to the Pacific Ocean with incredible views, excellent fishing and a unique view of the vital tidal marsh habitat that provides an ecological connection between fresh and salt-water species.
