Kayak Fishing

Located at the base of the Willamette Falls is the heart of the best spring Chinook salmon fishing in the region, eNRG Kayaking is your hookup for dropping into top notch fishing from a kayak.

This 2 hour introduction to kayak fishing will run through the basics while in kayaks specifically set up for fishing. You will learn kayak fishing techniques (including lures, knots, trolling, and drifting) and essential safety information. Enjoy scenic views of the Willamette Falls, passing herons, geese, & osprey as you learn techniques for catching Salmon, Steelhead, Shad, and Small-mouth bass. Paddlers will drift and troll down-river from our shop in Oregon City on the mighty Willamette, learning about the best fishing holes along the way.

The course fee includes your boat, paddle, lifejacket, instruction, rod / reel / quick fish lure set up and shuttle back to shop.

Participants should bring clothing that can get wet & splash gear (rain coat/pants etc). You can bring your own fishing equipment if you like (poles over 9 .5 feet are not recommended). Wet suits are available for rent, and fishing licenses are required for all participants. Fisherman’s Marine across from our shop sell one day licenses for around $17 and the best bait on the market is available at our shop for an additional charge.

We do offer tandem kayaks for a child to partner with an adult. If a child is small (around 4 years old) the parent can often paddle with the child in their lap.
