Dave’s Fishing Guide Service – Cowlitz River

Capt David Mallahan Toledo, WA Incorporated Licensed Insured

If you are looking for some of the best Washington Salmon fishing, then look no further than Dave’s Fishing Guide Service. Our Cowlitz River fishing charters provides you with top Salmon fishing opportunities year-round. We welcome angler of all ages and skill levels, so feel free to bring your friends and family along for an excellent day of fishing. 


Captain Dave Mallahan will be at the helm on your Washing Salmon fishing adventure. He has been fishing for salmon and Steelhead since he was a young boy. Over the years, he has developed a deep passion for the sport of fishing. He started running Cowlitz River fishing charters so he could show others just how thrilling it can be. He works hard on every trip to make sure each of his clients are having the time of their lives putting fish in the boat. Captain Dave is always ready to share everything he has learned with you on all of his trips. 


Your fishing adventure with Capt. Dave will begin in Toledo, Washington, and go on to cover the different fishing grounds of the Cowlitz River. This river is one of the most consistent fisheries in all of Washington. This river is known for its year-round Steelhead fishing and provides a springtime Chinook run that can’t be beat. 


Fishing will be done off of our 23ft Aluminum weld Jet boat that is perfect for Washington Salmon fishing. She is powered by a 225hp Yamaha engine that will get us up and down the Cowlitz River in a very timely manner. This vessel comes with all the required safety features and a GPS and fish finder will help us navigate to where the bite is hot. She has enough room for you and 5 other guests to comfortably fish at the same time. 


We offer full and half day Cowlitz River fishing trips. Each trip include all of the fishing gear, lures, and bait needed for a productive day of fishing. The price of the trip includes a fish cleaning service at the end of each trip at no additional cost. Some of the fishing techniques Captain Dave can teach you about include drift fishing, trolling, spinning, and fly fishing. 


Some of the species we love to chase after on the Cowlitz river include Coho Salmon, King Salmon, Lake Trout, Sturgeon, Sockeye Salmon, Cutthroat Trout, Rainbow Trout, and more!
