Wanted to get a group of us together for a fishing trip and Phill came recommended. Sure glad I called him. Not only was he knowledgeable about the different types of fishing we could do but really patient. As I wanted to find a guide who understood my Dad has a few health disadvantages that could complicate the trip. Thankfully... More

I'm a past co-president of the Sandy chapter nw steelheaders and I've met and fished with many guides in Oregon. After meeting Phil and fishing with him I can say he's one of the best guides in Oregon bar none. His knowledge of fish and fishing is far superior than most of the best guides I know. He fishes with... More

Started fishing with Phil 10 years ago because another guide passed our trip to him, I have not fished with another guide since and won't. He is the only guide I would ever consider sending my clients or friends with on a trip. Phil is a great guy, fun to hang out with, good with kids and above all he... More

Booked a fishing trip for my family with Phillz Guide Service. We showed up at the dock 5 minutes early and Phill was already in the water waiting for us. He was very friendly and very knowledgeable. He took the time to show us how to fish and it was a blast! Even better we got all of our fish... More

I called Phil to see how do you get a trip going. It is close to Christmas and I have family in town and thought we would try this. Phil was a wealth of information and told me that the conditions were not very good... river too high. Phil was easy to talk to and super helpful. He will definately... More

I've been fishing with Phillz Guide Service over the past decade, and there is no one I'd rather fish with. He has an uncanny ability to locate fish, especially when other boats aren't catching anything. I've used Phillz in the open ocean, up and down the Columbia and Willamette rivers, as well as the Nehalem. He runs a tight operation,... More

I recently purchased a guided salmon trip in Astori, OR with Phillz Guide Service, owned and operated by Phil Smith. Phill brought a tremendous amount of experience with him and was able to get my father and I some beautiful fish. Phil also appreciates those who've not fished much or need some help understanding different methods, baits, tactics, conditions, etc.... More

We have been fishing with Phill many times. He is always on time, friendly, and professional. He is extremely knowledgeable, he really knows his stuff. I have literally been in a line of boats where people in front of us and after us caught nothing, but we did! Even on slow days his positive attitude and tanacity keeps it fun.... More
