Day of Fishing for Kids With Cancer

Jim Martin's Guide Service and members of the McKenzie River Guides Association donated their time and expertise to local children with cancer, as they guided free fishing trips for the kids and their families down the McKenzie River. The adventure served as a day of relaxation for both the guides and the kids and a chance for the families to leave all their daily stresses behind, even if just for a few hours.

Land a Salmon with Jim
Jim's Report

The spring Chinook Salmon and Summer Steelhead fishing on the McKenzie River and Willamette River will start to pick up as the fish come over the dam in Oregon City. There are a few steelhead reported caught on both rivers already, this should just get better and better. There should be enough spring Chinook Salmon in the rivers to justify fishing in late may. Per my normal routine I will be out early and covering a lot of water to see if there is enough fish to justify getting the booked clients out.

What my clients say
"

We want to thank you for a terrific day on the river - we had a ball .  We understand that this is a difficult time of year to find fish.  You so very thoroughly worked the river to ensure that we experienced the thrill of "catching" vs just fishing.  You definitely went the extra mile, and we appreciate it!  We enjoyed your sense of humor and respect your knowledge, expertise and how deeply you care about the fish and the rivers.  

Thank you for a great experience!

Kevin and Lucy
