Luckily, Dan decided to leave the rat-race and do the one thing he’s always loved to do: fish. With three different boats and access to all the great fishing spots in the Northwest, Dan is the experienced guide who simply loves being on the water and doing what he does best.

Dan Porter has over 20 years experience fishing Oregon's north coast, bays and rivers, including the Columbia River in his search for salmon, sturgeon, and steelhead.

An old salty sailor?

Even with his years of experience, he still maintains a youthful exuberance that makes every trip that much more enjoyable. Besides, with three different boats you’ll always get to the fish safely and in comfort, no matter what the conditions may be. And of course, Dan is fully insured, not to mention US Coast Guard licensed.
