do not have allot of information on Oregon fishing guide's at this time.
What I do have, I will display on this page. The first guide I have was
called "Fishing Guide to Oregon". It was published by Clark B.
Walsh in 1946 and it only has 48 pages. The next one I will cover came out
in 1947 and was called the "Oregon Sportsmen's Guide" published
by Edward W. Pulver. These guide are exactly like the Pulver guides that
were put out for Washington State. I have seen several western States
covered by Pulver and they all share the same format. They contained loose
maps in a front and rear pockets along with a book section in the middle.
I will display the 1950 edition here. The third and last guide I will
cover was called "The Oregon Sportsman's Guide" which came out
in 1960. The first edition is very similar to the Ben Paris guide's of the
same time period and was suppose to come out every two years. The cover
shows 1960-61 and I have found no evidence that any other editions ever
followed this one. The publisher was the owner of "Fosters Sporting
Goods" in Portland which was touted as "The Worlds Largest
Sports Supermarket". His name is Henning Helstrom and would later put
out the Henning's
"Fishing, Hunting and Vacation Guide to the Pacific Northwest".
He also put out some other Northwest related guide's as well. As with all
of these old fishing guides, they are hard to come by which adds their
rarity and value. If you have any information or comments on any other
guide's or editions of the three guide's that I have covered here, please
contact me by email.
