How to Join

What Members Get - benefits of membership

  1. We believe we can help members get the equivalent of an average of:
    • 215 hookups/weekend for their family's boat where the fish average 13 inches, like Dale (our president/founder) actually does.
    • 120 hookups/weekend for your family's boat where the average trip has 7 pound fish.
    • Have your average fish over the whole year be 33 POUNDS if you fished all of our top 35 biggest-fish scenarios. Averages 19 hookups/weekend for your family's boat (sturgeon and halibut may be higher, tuna and Chinook likely lower).
          Skeptical? Then see
  2. Virtually not get skunked for a whole year if you only fish from the 64 scenarios on our "No Skunk" Guarantee list. Dale's boat hasn't been skunked in years.
  3. The best publicly-available computerized fishing "system" we've ever seen:
    • We'll tailor our computerized Fishing Calendar for each member, so they'll enjoy fishing more.
    • Extensive written "Game plans" and instructional video clips, for specific catching scenarios, on our web site. We seek out experts, like Dave Graybill.
    • We'll give members the best Fishing "Reminder List" we've ever seen…makes for the smoothest trips possible.

  4. Personal coaching from experts:
  5. Latest News emailed to you, or access it at this web site.
    • Reports/pictures from our latest fishing trips.

  6. Email or call us for advice.
  7. Members' volunteer or monetary contributions help us "give back" to the fishing resource.

"We're not just fishing, we're catching!"

Our Goal at Fishing Coaches

Our goal is to help you have better fishing in Washington, or Oregon, or British Columbia, or Northern Idaho, or Alaska. Whether you live in Seattle, the Puget Sound area, or Portland, or Vancouver, or anywhere in the Pacific Northwest.

We do this by providing gameplans and fishing classes from experienced fishermen. We provide fishing reports from our staff/contacts, Oregon fishing guides, Washington fishing guides, etc. And helpful links, such as to WDFW and ODFW regulations.

We do both freshwater and saltwater fishing. Traditional tackle or fly fishing.

We support Puget Sound Anglers, Trout Unlimited, and seven other non-profit groups. We especially encourage salmon conservation and trout conservation.

Whether it's the Columbia River for sturgeon, or a lake for largemouth bass, we want to help you. Or King Salmon - aka Chinook, or Silver Salmon - aka coho, or the prolific humpy…we love salmon fishing. Do-it-yourself, or how about salmon charters, or guides for a guided steelhead trip?

We have info on the Fraser River, Banks Lake (great waterskiing, too), Willamette River, Snohomish River, Lake Washington, Vedder River, Chilliwack River, Harrison River (great for chums), Skagit River, etc.

Whether it's Washington fishing or Oregon fishing, or whatever, we want to help you!
