Some of our happy customers

“My wife Crystal and I spent 2 days fishing on the Columbia with Matt in mid September. Casting dries to large rainbows in a clear river was always a bucket list item of mine, and to say the experience surpassed my expectations is a serious understatement! The combination of excellent equipment, Matt’s intimate knowledge of the river, gin clear water, and large, aggressive, wild rainbows consistently rising to the fly created memories that will last forever. Cant wait to return!”

“We want to say, what a fantastic time we had. We were very encouraged and pleased with the service that Bruce provided. His patience, teaching skills and a fine cup’o brew are second to none; maybe only to his actual local knowledge of the river and the fish.”

— Leslee

Boat Fishing Trip

“Fishing the Columbia in September for landlocked steelhead was a delight. A big river with good flow requires good Spey casting and our guide was more than up to the task, teaching us as well as guiding. The steelhead showed why the landlocked version on the Columbia has a reputation. Fall fishing for steelhead on the Columbia, a real pleasure.”
