John Krauthoefer, owner of Firefighter's Guide Service, is widely recognized as one of the North Oregon Coast's top fishing guides. With more than 35 years focused experience, Johns knowledge and expertise in some of the region's most celebrated fisheries has no equal. Tillamook Bay fall and spring Chinook, Nehalem Bay fall Chinook, Nestucca River Steelhead, North Fork Nehalem Steelhead (by Custom White Water Raft), Ocean Chinook, Silver Salmon and Halibut, Buoy 10 and Columbia River Salmon are all fisheries John has mastered. These are places were fall Chinook in excess of 60 pounds are caught, trophy Steelhead are found and spring Chinook jump on spinners and herring with reckless abandon. With John you'll be fishing premium gear in the comfort of his custom-built 26' Willie Raptor. Everything is provided except your license, rain gear and lunch. Firefighter's Guide Service is the difference between "Acceptable and Exceptional". Contact John by calling 503-812-1414 or
