My goal is to get you out on one of Oregon’s many beautiful waterways and show you a good time. Come join me for a day and I will share my enthusiasm for fishing and entertaining people. I truly love what I do!
Salmon are one of the most prized fish of the great Pacific Northwest. Oregon has even named the Chinook, or King, Salmon our state fish. We fish for Coho and Chinook at different times and locations throughout the year.
Some are surprised to learn that Steelhead are a trout species. While rainbow trout are more colorful and freshwater only, steelhead travel to the sea and return to the coastal rivers to spawn in one of two runs each year – summer or winter.
