Kevin Long - Guide

My name is Kevin Long, and I’ve been fishing for salmon all of my life. My dad, Richard, introduced me to fishing when I was in diapers, and it has since become a passion of mine.

In 2007, my dad sold our offshore boat and decided to switch gears and try something new. Since 2007 we have been honing our skills fishing for Chinook on the Central Columbia Basin. In all the years that my father and I have been fishing, we have made lifelong friendships and met many great guides. These great people have helped me become the fisherman that I am today. After achieving one of my lifelong goals of becoming a firefighter, it only seemed right to move onto my next goal – owning my own fishing guide business. I finally decided to pull the trigger and start Kinghunter Guide Service, and cannot wait to see where this new venture will take me.

Some of my greatest memories are days spent on a boat, enjoying good company, food, and great times. So lets create some new memories!

Rick Long - Tillerman

My name is Richard Long, and I’ve been fishing for salmon since I was a teenager. Ilwaco, Westport, Sekiu, Pillar Point, I’ve fished them all.

In 2007, when I retired after 31 years as a Journeyman Carpenter, I decided to learn something different. I sold my offshore boat and ordered an Alumaweld from Three Rivers Marine. After talking it over with my youngest son Kevin, we decided to learn the Central Columbia Basin for spring, summer, and fall Chinook. Well it’s now 2013 and we’ve made lasting friendships with other great fisherman, some of whom are also guides. Kevin has taken it to the next level and started Kinghunter Guide Service. This has proven to be an excellent fishery on the Columbia River for Chinook, and now a growing Sockeye fishery.

Kevin and I have caught Chinook to 50 pounds, and fish a variety of ways to get those strikes. Our gear and bait is the best!

If you are looking for an enjoyable day on the water and beautiful scenery, give Kevin or myself a call.
