About our Boats
     We fish from the comfort of a custom built 25’ North River Scout jet boat and a custom built 17’ Willie drift boat. Both of these boats are designed for northwest fishing guides for their durability, safety, and comfort. The quality of the fishing trip is just as important as catching fish to many of our guests and we do everything possible to make sure you catch fish in safety and comfort.
Our North River is 25’ long and nearly 9’ wide with tall sides, this makes for an extremely stable and safe boat with tons of room to fight your fish and move around. Boat is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha outboard motor that gets us to the fishing grounds quickly, and an 8 HP Yamaha trolling motor equipped with a TR-1 autopilot, trolling motor is extremely quiet and autopilot makes for hands free operation. Boat is equipped with state of the art electronics, very comfortable seats with armrests, lots of dry storage for your personal gear, and is designed to accommodate up to 6 guests very comfortably. We primarily use this boat while fishing for salmon and sturgeon.

     Our Willie drift boat is 17’ long and very stable. Boat is equipped with comfortable seats with armrests, and a propane heater for the cooler mornings on the river. This boat is designed to accommodate 2 guests comfortably. We primarily use this boat while fishing for winter steelhead.
