The Experience

The Columbia River Fishing Experience

Dan Ponciano’s Guide Service will supply all the gear needed to fish, whether we’re on the Columbia River or the Sacramento River. We’ll even clean and process your fish for you, so all you have to do is put it in your cooler to take home.

Each angler is responsible for getting their own fishing license and fish record card. These may be purchased on-line or from stores in the areas near where we’ll be fishing. Be sure to have a valid license when we meet in the morning to start the day.

Anglers are responsible for bringing their own lunch, drinks and any personal gear. Sunglasses, a camera, cell phone, rain gear and sun-block are key items to bring. Dressing in layers is a good idea, as weather conditions can vary throughout the course of a day.

Make sure you check and prepare appropriately for the weather!

What to Bring

Upon booking your trip with Dan Ponciano’s Guide Service, you’ll receive a letter of confirmation. This letter will detail exactly where we will meet and at what time.

Our typical day of fishing begins when we meet before daylight. We will fish for eight hours, providing you with a full day of fishing. Rarely do we do half-day trips, but sometimes will consider an early morning or afternoon trip for striped bass on the Sacramento River.

Thank you for considering a fun and enjoyable fishing trip with me. I look forward to personally fishing with you and offering the best fishing experience I can provide. Until we meet on the river, tight lines!
