About the adventure: all excursions begin a few miles north of Eugene at Marshall Island Park on the banks of the Willamette River. A designated “water trail”, with little development. This section of the Willamette River looks much as it did 100 years ago.….
I’m a licensed, insured captain with US Coast Guard and registered with the Oregon State Marine Board. I grew up on the lower Rogue River and bought my first power boat when I was 13 years old; boating and being on the water has been a life long hobby, my work and my passion. I am also a member of the McKenzie River Guides Association, the oldest association of river guides in the world. The safety of my passengers is my highest concern and at the start of each excursion every person is carefully fit into a Coast Guard approved life jacket….
Drift Boat Fishing is fun, productive and the most effective way of fishing for trout and steelhead. A 1/2 day trip covers about 4 river miles (4-4.5 hrs.) and we float about 8.5 miles (8-8.5 hrs.) on a full day trip. I provide all fishing gear, rod reels and lures. Beverages are included and you are welcome to bring snacks on a half day float. I pack a full, hot, sit down shore lunch on all full day fishing trips. That we enjoy along the river bank.
Whether you're a seasoned enthusiast or on your first Whitewater Rafting Trip, the McKenzie River is just right. The rapids are fun, bouncy and range from class one to class three plus.
