Pecks Guide Service offers
Steelhead fishing and Waterfowl hunting trips
Northwest Oregon And Southwest Washington
We provide quality guided
fishing trips in the Pacific Ocean and the
Columbia River near Astoria, the Willamette and
Columbia River in the Portland area and below
My goal is to make your fishing adventure the
best possible experience that it can be. My job
as a professional fishing guide is not done
until my clients are satisfied. I have spent
most of my life fishing the areas
in the northwest and I always use the most
effective methods for where we are fishing. I
never skimp when it comes to
purchasing the freshest bait, the best lures and
the highest quality fishing tackle.
I know when to change tactics according to
fishing conditions such as water clarity,
streamflow, water levels and various other
I communicate with a lot of other fishing guides on a daily basis to
current conditions and fishing
strategies. Fishing conditions change on a daily
basis so an area that was successful on Monday
may just go dead on Wednesday. By networking
other guides in the area I always stay on top of
the best fishing. If we plan your trip
for a popular area and I find out that the
fishing is not very good in that area I will
always contact you to offer alternatives. I
won't waste my time or yours fishing there and
trying to make something happen that just isn't
going to happen.
promise to you is that I'll not only
take you fishing, I'll do my homework
you have the best possible chance of
catching fish as well.

been catching fish in the
Pacific NW for over 40 years with roots deeply
established on the McKenzie River in my youth where I
started rowing a hand crafted drifted boat built at age 16.
I have always had a passion for fishing all over the
Northwest and it's a passion I have pursued most of my
life. I hope that you
will spend time with me sharing in the love of the
great outdoors and all it has to offer.
You will find me where the fish are, with tight lines,
fish in the box and a smile with anticipation of the
