My recent trip to Pacific City and fishing with OarAngling was a first for me and my two fishing buddies and totally exceeded our expectations. Kyle is an experienced Doryman and his Dory and Fishing gear is in great shape. The trip is very unique in the very nature of launching and recovering the Dory in the surf. Has to be experienced .My friends and I all have boats (and fish a lot )and this was a blast... The fishing grounds are very close so you don’t spend hardly any time driving before Kyle has you knee deep in nice sized “Sea Bass” Black Rockfish.. limits in about 30 minutes, then off to jig up some Lingcod... Limits came pretty quick there too, with one Ling weighing in at about 30# estimated... most were in the 25-30” class and a ball to catch. Then off to pull our crab pots which after only a 2 hr soak gave us 10 keepers... not too shabby after the commercial crabbers had recently pulled all their gear... All in all, you are pretty much gauranteed a terrific experience...

We had an amazing time going out with Oar Angling and Captain Kyle! We highly recommend Kyle and he even came to us highly recommended! From the start, he was accommodating in trying to determine the best time for us to go out on the water over Memorial Day Weekend. We had 2 families with 3 kids and he was really good at ensuring everyone was safe and had an awesome time. He has great technology on the boat and was able to find some huge schools of fish. We went out for about 5 hours, which was definitely around the kids limit, and he was conscious of that. We caught our limit of Seabass and then we even were able to bottom fish and catch some Lingcod. Kyle had crab pots already out in the water just waiting for us to pick up as well! Kyle was not only great on the boat, but was also great off the boat! We had a camper so we couldn’t go back to clean the fish, but Kyle went back to his house, cleaned the fish and crabs and then brought it back to us, at the public parking lot next t...

I would highly recommend a trip with OAR Angling. Kyle is a professional, he is experienced and he is an extremely knowledgeable boatsman. I have fished with quite a few guides at this point and have a pretty good idea of how a professional guide operates. Kyle takes his job very seriously and he works hard to make sure your trip is a success regardless of the fish biting or not. We had a great day bite and the fish were very cooperative, (limits of coho, rock bass and crab) but I can tell you that even if the bite gets tough, Kyle will work hard and keep you interested and engaged. Fishing out of the dory in Pacific City is one of the most exciting and unique experiences you may ever have on the water. I've spent lots of days on the salt, but the experience of crashing through the waves in a Dory Boat is absolutely exhilarating. If you are planning a trip to the area or if you have simply never taken a dory ride out of Pac City, Kyle has my highest recommendation. You will have a ...

Dory fishing is a one of a kind experience! Launch and return through the surf directly from the beach at Cape Kiwanda in beautiful Pacific City, Oregon. Dory boat fishing is a tradition that dates back to the early 1900's. In comparison to typical charter boat trips, yours will be limited to no more than 6 guests and provides a much more personal fishing experience. Pacific City has several near shore reefs that allow us to target species within minutes after getting through the surf, which means more time fishing - less time traveling. You’ll be sure to bring home an impressive amount of delicious fillets for the fish fry or quickly fill your freezer. 

Drift boat trips are available for Fall Salmon fishing and Winter Steelhead. We have the opportunity to explore our numerous coastal rivers and the versatility to employ different methods of targeting fish. 

Upon scheduling trips, a non refundable deposit of half the trips cost is required  to lock in your date(s), unless cancelled within 2 weeks of your scheduled trip. Trips are contingent upon Ocean and River conditions. Oregon fishing license required. All tackle and safety equipment is provided & we clean, process and vacuum seal your catch.
