Welcome to
Home of Young's Fishing Service

Intro. by Capt. Jack LaFond

Young’s Fishing Service, Inc. was co-founded in 1986 by Jack LaFond and Bill Young, who were partners in Young’s Sporting Goods located in The Dalles, Oregon. We started out guiding strictly on the Columbia River for Walleye, Sturgeon, Salmon and Steelhead in our smaller fiberglass boats, progressing into fishing the Deschutes River via Jet Boats. Having closed our sporting goods store in 1995, I decided that the fishing guide life would be my sole profession.

Being “officially retired”, Bill continues to guide on a more limited basis, and enjoys being on the water and leading his clients and friends to fish.

We have both made countless friends over the years and that’s really what keeps us going. What could be better than fishing with your friends every season and catching up on their lives, as well as catching some fish?

For all that have fished with us before, we always look forward to seeing you again on your next trip.  And for those that have yet to, we invite you to try a fishing trip with us and enjoy the splendid beauty of the Columbia River Scenic Gorge and beyond...
