Information About Fishing Trips & Dave Maroon (your fishing guide)

Hello, I am Dave Maroon and I welcome you to my website. My goal is to provide you with the best possible quality fishing adventure. I will do everything I possibly can to make your trip a fun and exciting experience whether you are a seasoned veteran or you are just beginning to learn how to fish.

We go catching out of a 24' North River. North River makes the highest quality and most comfortable boat on the water today. The boat is also fully covered! You will be comfortable, safe, warm and in the nicest and most accommodating boats on the River.

I have a coast guard license and state license and am fully insured. I have a fisheries degree from Mount Hood Community College and have been fishing local area waters my entire life.

When conditions dictate the boat is also covered.

Dave Maroon has fished local waters for over 20 years. He has extensive knowledge in every aspect of the fishing industry. Dave has an associate degree in fish biology and has worked on several fisheries projects in Alaska, Oregon and California.
When you spend a day fishing with Dave Maroon you will get more than just a great day of fishing and catching. You will also get a better knowledge of fishing in the Northwest and you will enjoy the company of a very friendly fishing guide. Come and join Dave Maroon Fishing Adventures today. Dave also uses a much smaller drift boat for Sandy River drifting and other smaller fisheries.

     I have been fishing local area waters since I was a little kid and I still get as excited every time I get a fish on. Join me for an exciting day of catching and a fishing adventure on the world famous Columbia river.
     You will never forget your first "hog" Salmon (photo on right) because it is a thrill of a lifetime. And my first big keeper Sturgeon (photo on left) was a thrill too. These are the kinds of excitement will bring you back again and again year after year to the popular Northwest fisheries.     
     I have to admit that I still get the same thrill when I catch a fish today. Catching a prize Northwest Salmon, Steelhead, Walleye, Shad or Sturgeon is an enjoyment that is just as good every time you experience it. My heart beats just as hard now as it did when I was a young boy when I hook a big one. Come join me and see for yourself. I promise that you'll have such a great time that you'll want to book the same trip for nest year too. The happy clients in the photo below will verify that for sure!

While the actions of each one of the over 300 rods we make vary, the reactions we get from anglers rarely does. Unless you've had the pleasure of browsing through our catalog in the past, you probably didn't realize the diversity of our selection. We are, as most anglers know, a specialty rod manufacturer. Yet, as most anglers don't know, our specialty is variety. Click here to see what's new for this year
