Fully Licensed and Insured Oregon Fishing Guide (Guide No. 2501)

An Oregon native, Jordan has been fishing the Pacific Northwest rivers for over 30 years. Born in Salem, Oregon and living in the Portland area, his local knowledge and expertise are the ingredients you need to put you on fish, and have memories that will last a lifetime.

Jordan has been fishing the Sandy River since he was a young kid and it has a special place in his heart. The Sandy is a incredible river just minutes from Portland offering breathtaking scenery and landscapes.

Also special to Jordan is the Oregon coast range. With its rugged peaks and rain filled tributaries the coastal rivers of the NW are unique with fresh fish just hours out of the salt waters of the Pacific Ocean. That's where Jordan came up with the name “Pacific Drifter” using the analogy of all the river systems flowing from the pristine mountain tops to the Pacific Ocean and the lifelong desire to pursue and explore (aka a Drifter) valley to valley, river to river, mountain to mountain.

Our Boats

We have three sizes of boats that allow us to fish big to small rivers all year long...

24′ Sled: We will be fishing Columbia River chinook out of a custom-built 24′ sled that accommodates up to 6 passengers.

17′ Willies Drift Boat: When the fish run up the tributaries we will float a 17′ Willies that can accommodate 3 passengers.

13′ Custom NRS Raft:  For those seeking to get away from the crowds the 13′ NRS is the choice.  It fits 2 passengers comfortably and allows us to fish remote and low-level water.

What To Bring

  • Valid Oregon fishing license and tags or a valid Washington fishing tag if fishing anywhere on the Columbia.
  • Good layering system with warm clothes and especially rain gear (request rain gear if you don’t have access to any)
  • Lunch and snacks for the trip. Please keep coolers to a minimum especially if the boat is full (6 clients). I will have a cooler as well to place things in as well.
  • Cameras are optional but not necessary since I take photos during each trip and share copies the next day

What People Have Said

Mikel Lenox

Was able to snag a spot and got to fish for spring Chinook. Had so much fun catching fish in an urban setting! Jordan was an awesome guide and he put me on the fish, excited to get out and fish with him again!

Matthew Beeman

Jordan always does his best to put clients on fish. He is a conscientious guide and has a great knowledge of lots of different fisheries. I recommend using him for Buoy 10 or any of the upriver fisheries.

John Barstow

Jordan goes above and beyond! We have fished together a number of times and this guy knows his sport! His character, ethics, and effort are WAY above what would be expected.

Kyle Hickey
