Call today and book a trip now with one of the best known and popular Oregon fishing guides you will find. Bill knows the waters of this area like the back of his hand and he'll switch fishing locations from day to day due to last second condition changes. Lots of fishing guides get stuck in a rut and fish in EXACTLY the same place every day year after year and let the conditions dictate their success rate. Northwest Hawghunters checks out river flows, water levels, weather patterns and predictions, water clarity, tide changes and several other factors on a daily basis to determine the best strategies to use to catch fish. What techniques Bill uses or what baits and rigs he uses, where he fishes, what depth of water he fishes in, what colors of lures he uses and several other things determine what he will use to catch fish the next day. Most guides use the same data and the same poles and baits day after day, no matter what the conditions. some days they catch fish and some days they sit idle wondering what's going on and saying things like "man, you should have been here yesterday!"
