Kyle and his deckhand Andrew were awesome! Our family had a fantastic time. We always felt safe and informed. The bottom fishing was more like catching. It felt like we reeled in a fish with every cast. After many years of watching dory boats from shore, it was so fun to launch off the beach and safely maneuver and make it past the break to fish. It was amazing to see the Cape and Haystack Rock from a different vantage point. It was even more fun to ride a wave into the beach at the end of the trip. Probably the coolest thing of the day was we were able to bring our 4 year old son. Before the trip we were a little nervous about having him out on the open ocean, but once captain Kyle started interacting with him, we were at ease! Kyle was great with him!  Our son had the best time! After the trip, much to our surprise, Kyle and Andrew filleted and vacuum sealed our fish and cleaned and cooked our crab.  (We had actually packed our own vacuum sealer and crab cooking pot because we wer...

Kyle and Andrew did a great job keeping us on the fish and explaining how to do everything safely and well. They were so much fun to work with and the time just simply flew by. Kyle was great at running the waves in and out of Pacific City, I cannot recommend him highly enough for your next exciting fishing trip on the Oregon coast. We limited out on rockfish, caught a couple of keeper salmon and have a great load of dungeness crab!

If I could give more than 5 stars, I would. Our experience with Oar Angling was epic! We limited on rockfish, salmon, and brought home a ton of crab. The captain, Kyle, was very good at managing our trip, gave excellent instructions, was very detailed and process driven to make things easy for us, and made everything so fun and great. His boat is also in excellent shape and was fun to check out and fish from. I’d never seen the Dory boats before and the launching from the beach and landing was a fun experience in itself. We took 4 people with us, 2 boys 2 girls, and everyone had the same great experience. The processing of the fish was top notch. We got every ounce of fish we caught in vacuum sealed packaging, the crab was boiled and cleaned, it was more than we expected and worth every penny for the experience, fish, and memories. I can’t recommend enough Oar Angling. You will have the best Dory boat fishing experience in Pacific City.

Ocean Dory Fishing & River Fishing

We provide fun, coastal fishing adventures along the Tillamook Coast year round. We combine an elevated level of professionalism and expertise for anglers of all skill levels. 

Your captain, Kyle Dodson, is U.S. Coast Guard Licensed, Insured, First Aid/ CPR certified, and is an Oregon certified guide. His passion for fishing and his enthusiastic demeanor will make this an experience you won't forget!

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. 

Dory Boat Prices: $300 per person up to 6 anglers - Crabbing included

Drift Boat Prices: $250 per person up to 3 anglers
