Oregon Coast Guides

Can anyone recommend any good guides for the Oregon coastal rivers. I am hoping to fish the Wilson or the Nestucca but I am not partial.

Try Scott O'Donnel

I fish because the voices inside my head tell me to.

Frigate Travel- Kate and Justin Krump- that's their neighborhood. I've never heard anything but good about them.

Hickman personally has filled up for the winter already, you'll be set up with one of his guides, Barrett or Curtis. The coast can very likely blow out, in which case you'd be fishing the Clackamas.

Can't go wrong with K8 and Justin. You'll have a great time and they are two of the fishiest people I know.

I may be

I may be mistaken, but are they not side drifting bobber - bead types ?

I would recommend a guide that strictly swings if thats what you like to do.

also might look up Chris O'Donnell (not related), or Alex G. from Deschutes angler

Nope, sorry. They're both solid, solid two-handed guides.

I might be mistaken, but..... i had a friend fished w/ a Justin married to Kate on the north coast. he was talked into strictly bobber lobbin. caught a LOT of colorful fish in the far upstream reaches of a river i swing much lower down. all from the boat. tho, it was a great week for swinging too. i'm sure there's a few combos on the north coast w/ the same names. i personally have never met them. thought i knew all of the swing guides around here.

Edit : If you look carefully at the website, it should cast some light on the subject. reading my post carefully, will say something of the where they were fishing(as in far upstream), and why (spawners) i'm really trying to be diplomatic as possible while calling out some bad ethical (tho unfortunately legal) practices. To be fair, I do see a lot of side drifters that will sometimes swing.

Any guide worth their salt could use either methodologies. (pun intended)

I bet if you communicate with them about what you would prefer I'm sure they could easily accommodate that.

Also Check out Chris O'Donnell- Bend Fly Shop / River Runner Outfitters. I had a great day with him, and he's also a great guy to spend a day on the water with

I'd call Gil Muhleman watertime outfitters
Early in the season he uses a raft on the north fork
then switches to his db on the kilchis/trask/wilson
suppose I've fished with him for about 6-7 years

Those rivers have a mixture of water, so I wouldn't expect to be in perfect spey water every moment. If your goal is to only spey, then I suggest saying so when you arrange your trip.

+1 on Chris O'Donnell of River Run Outfitters, Bend Fly shop. I did a 3-day float/camp with him on the Deschutes and also fished with him on the coastal streams in March. As RustyR said, great guy and excellent company!
