River Rafting & Fishing Guides

Whitewater rafting, kayaking, tubing and boat tours are major attractions on the McKenzie River, Willamette River and the Siuslaw River. Experienced Oregon river rafting and fishing guides welcome visitors of all skill levels, ages and abilities on memorable water excursions tailored from mild to wild. Kick back on an easy float along the scenic Willamette River or amp up the adrenaline, paddle in hand, racing through the McKenzie River's Class III Martens Rapids.

Discover the best fishing holes with guides who have grown up fishing Oregon's rivers, streams, lakes and ocean coastline. Fish all the best spots with a local fishing guide or learn to cast with classes offered at local outfitters.

Why Go with a Guide?

  • They have the gear (or know where to get it) — from boats to wetsuits to lifejackets to flies. 
  • It's safer venturing out with a local expert that knows the river. They know this year's snags, eddies and where the fish are biting.
  • You can learn from them. Local guides can coach your casting or teach you about navigation.
  • Shuttle service — it's nice to have all the coordination handled.
  • It's more fun!
