Professional guided fishing on the rivers of Oregon’s coast and Willamette Valley.  I fish the McKenzie and Willamette for trout and summer steelhead, and the Alsea, Siletz, Smith, Siuslaw and Umpqua rivers for winter steelhead.  My focus is on fly, spin, and centerpin fishing for steelhead and trout.  I have an 18′ Koffler drift boat we use to float the rivers, some places we will drive from spot to spot and hike.  Koffler did an excellent job on building my boat for me, it is very stable and comfortable.  I am a full service fishing guide catering to your needs for the day or week on the river, whether you have never fished before, or you fish several days a year.  One thing that sets me apart from the rest is that I am a fly fishing guide, and a gear fishing guide.  It seems backwards to me to specialize in one or the other, it’s just that certain techniques work better in certain situations, and everyone is different.  I am skilled at fly fishing and casting instruction, and have taught numerous anglers this fun way to fish.  I provide all tackle from fly or lure, leader, rod and reel.  Your comfort is my service, and the river is my home, a wonderful one, I would like you to feel at home there as well.  I have invested in the best gear you can find, and I strive to use U.S. made equipment, from My Koffler boat made right here in Eugene, to Sage fly rods made in Washington, Abel fly reels made in California, and St. Croix spin and casting rods made in Wisconsin.  A hot lunch can be provided on request, as well as drinks.
