6:00 A.M. until 4 P.M. Winter season ( Springer season

) seven days a week and we are located 20 minutes South
of Tillamook at the junction of Hwy.101 and Hwy. 22
in the town of Hebo, Oregon. Our location is
central to all of the local bays and coastal rivers in
Tillamook County and the surrounding area which includes
Tillamook Bay, Nestucca bay, Nestucca River, Little
Nestucca River , Trask, Kilchis, Siletz, Wilson,
Miami and Tillamook rivers where some of Oregon's
finest Chinook (King) salmon and steelhead fishing takes
place. We offer guided drift boat fishing trips
utilizing fly fishing or bait and tackle techniques on
all our local rivers daily with the top guides in the
area. We are able to accommodate large groups of 8
or more anglers with advance notice. We also offer
guided half day Crabbing or sight seeing trips. There
are a number of lakes in the area that are stocked
with trout year round that make for fun fishing for kids
and adults alike.
Shuttles run ALL day!
We run shuttles everyday. Come in and bring
a key or we will discuss alternate ways to get your rig
down where it is waiting for you at the end of your
trip. You'll be able to quickly get in the river and
start your trip. No running double rigs and trying to
find a parking spot. Our experience has been going on 12
years. Bring some $ ones for parking in certain areas.
We carry bait, tackle etc. along with breakfast items or
even sandwiches to take. If you do come early morning
before opening , we do have a box outside the door. Fill
out the envelope with all info.
Here is Pat's new guard dog! Watch your knee caps!

04/18/17 FREE fishing(clamming & crabbing
too!) weekend April 22&23. Bring a friend who
doesn't normally fish. Same regulations on retention,
size ect. will still remain in place. No tag is
required. We are still hearing fish caught in the
Nestucca river. Not as many fishing as earlier so the
river is quite calm. The numbers of winter steelhead are
few but we have seen a few early Summer steelhead. Any
time we will have our first spring Chinook! Hebo lake
has been a great place to take the kids. The week of
April 10th ODFW stocked. Should be a nice weekend.
04/03/17 Nice few days of weather!
A few fish are still being caught. Some days are better
than others. This is a transitional month where one
season dwindles as another enters. River is at a nice
level. We could see our 1st Springer soon.....One year
in the past when we had nice water we saw as early as
April 9th. We have a nice level of water. We will more
likely see some come in mid to end of this month, but
who knows?! Folks are enjoying the trout at the lake.
The gate is open at Hebo Lake for day use. Gates are
still up for camping till later in May. Lots of cleanup
from our storms.
03/24/17 Spring Break!
Looks like the slide that temporarily muddied the
Nestucca earlier this afternoon is now dissipating.
The river is returning to the green side! Good news for
you that are hoping to get on the Nestucca. Rain off and
on overnight should keep it about right for upper river
fishing. We had anywhere from Blain put in to Three
Rivers . Bring your rain jackets! Hebo Lake offers some
good fishing for families with youngsters wanting to
fish. Hope to see you here! April 22nd & 23rd is
FREE Fishing Weekend. Bring a friend who wants
to participate and doesn't fish a lot. Regulations, size
and possession will remain the same. Clamming and
crabbing are also extended to free fishing weekend.
03/15\2017 Spring is around the corner:
It's time to wake up and start some of the projects we
are known for. Rhodes Pond resumes it's activities with
it's annual pond clean up in preparation of receiving
their salmon smoltz. Clean up will be this coming
Saturday morning, March 18th at
9:00 A.M.. It is not expected to take too long. Ron Byrd
said that it might take between two and three hours.
Come and rub elbows with the rest of the fishing
community and help support our Fall Chinook program.
Hebo Lake will receive it's first planting of rainbow
trout the week of march the 20th. ODFW is slated to
place 4000 legal sized trout. What a nice way to kick
off the spring fishing. Youth friendly and easy lake
access make this a great destination for the youngsters.
We have a full supply of trout gear , power bait ,
worms, small spinners, pre-tied hooks, ect.
many fishing days : The reality is we
have had soooooo much rain this winter season that the
number of fishable days has fallen far short of the past
seasons. Fishing has been pretty good when conditions
allow but my interpretation ,based on numbers of days
fished, is that this has been a really disappointing
winter season. The only positive aspect that I can think
of is that there has been a tremendous amount of
escapement And this should bode well for future seasons.
Everyone has suffered this winter, our shop is down, the
guides ar54e all showing canceled trips and missed
fishing days. It pretty much effects everyone from
hotels, gas stations, grocery stores , restaurants, the
whole gambit. In conversations with some of the local
business owners a lot of folks are seriously concerned
for their businesses. Now most are pinning their hopes
that we might get to finish the winter steelhead with a
strong showing and hopes that the Springer season works
