Drew Hansen

Fishing the Pacific Northwest for 40 years.

Owner and guide Drew Hansen is a 4th generation Oregonian and has been fishing the Columbia & Willamette River Basins for 45 years.

Drew has a vast knowledge of salmon, steelhead and many other types of fish from his long history of fishing both sport and commercial. His fishing experience spans from running commercial boats in Bristol Bay & Cook Inlet Alaska to fishing in the Pacific Ocean off Oregon & Washington.

In 2002 my wife and I built our own state of the art fishing hatchery where we grew steelhead and trout to stock many of the lakes across Oregon. After growing the hatchery from scratch, to raising over 500,000 fish a year, Michelle and I sold the hatchery to move onto a slower paced lifestyle.

With fish and fishing being what we love to do the Hansen’s chose to have a custom aluminum boat built and start a guiding business. We chose to have only 4 seats instead of 6 like others in order to provide a more comfortable and relaxing experience. I also feel it gives me more time with each person to concentrate on their needs , rather than just fitting as many people in my boat as possible. I would rather concentrate on catching you more fish, rather than worry about my bottom line.

Drew holds a USCG Near Shore Merchant Mariner Credential which is good for vessels up to 100grt and to 100 miles off shore.

Also Red Cross, First aid, CPR, & AED certified.
