Hi! My name is Larry Scott, owner of Westside Guide Service. We have teamed up with more professional guides to better serve you, both in fresh and salt water. We are located just outside of the city of Forks, Washington, also known as “The Steelhead Capitol of the World,” on the northern tip of the Olympic Peninsula.

Whether you’re in pursuit of giant Chinook, feisty silver Salmon or trophy Steelhead, my 43 years of guiding experience will place you in front of the famous fish that call these rivers home!

Anyone that’s serious about Steelhead fishing or Salmon fishing has heard these names: Sol Duc, Bogachiel, Hoh, Calawah, Columbia, Cowlitz — some of the most beautiful, scenic and pristine rivers that you will ever see.

They are also home to the healthiest runs of native and hatchery Salmon and Steelhead anywhere in North America.  Nowhere in the country are more 20-30lb Steelhead landed annually than in the majestic rivers of Forks, Washington. Couple that with numerous 20+ lb. Silvers and Kings tipping the scales to 50lbs. being caught every year, and you can see how this town got its nickname. For your fishing trip, we will custom cater to your skill level, fishing method, and your desires as a fisherperson. Only the finest equipment and gear will be utilized.

A Message From Larry Scott

We are always fishing in the most productive areas that will catch you fish. We look forward to having fun, enjoying our surroundings and catching fish.

Columbia River Tributaries


The Cowlitz river provides the hottest summer steelhead action in the state. Big summer steelhead weight between 7-20+ lbs. and tail walk like tarpon! Fall salmon fishing on the Cowlitz river for kings and silvers is some of the best in the country. Kings weight in from 12-50 lbs. Silvers come in the rivers by the thousands. Ranging from 6-20 lbs. A great fish to catch and put on the BBQ, smoke or have the neighbors over for dinner!

A new 2007, 23ft. Alumaweld Super Vee Pro sled has been added to the fleet, they can host up to 5-6 clients per/boat. Very safe, comfortable and roomy boats. We specialize in corporate accounts and large groups! All rods, reels, tackle, and bait are included, but feel free to bring along your favorite rod and tackle, if you would like.  Expect a full day of fishing (about 7-8 hrs).

Drift fishing, float fishing, side drifting, back trolling plugs or bait, vertical fishing, and back bouncing are the most widely used and effective fishing techniques. We also specialize in fly fishing for Steelhead, Salmon, and Trout.
