Some nibbles about who we are. Our family started the company in 1997 for full time guided fishing and charter services. We all worked full time jobs, doing various things. Graphic design, house moving, and slaughter houses. We were fish guiding part time on top of those. Fishing always was priority for us, and remains so today.
The fishing guiding career started in Alaska as we were young teens. Taking final classes early, so we could go north to work, and learn. Early on, fishing became a type of therapy for us. As fishing became more and more important, it became clear that it was in our blood! Several people who surrounded us were fishermen as well, who certainly had some influence on that. They were guides, sport, and also commercial guys and gals.
As time went on, and several trips to Alaska, the guiding here in Oregon began to build. We had some good teachers, and were also experimented in different fisheries, and techniques. Many of the details that went into our fishing ventures became against the normal. With a lot of research and trial and error, we started to find certain things that worked well. Our catch rates at times were shocking to many. In fact, we were not believed on many occasions.
We have always tried our very best to provide a family approach to what we do. Yes, we are different, but we like to think we are unique. But we strive to have each and every person feel comfortable, be our friends, and eventually become part of our fishing family!
We fish year round! There is always something to do. Fall Kings is our favorite time of the year. Followed by Winter Steelhead. Then Spring Steelhead well into April. After that we have an amazing summer line up. Spring Kings, Summer Steelhead, Trout, Crabbing, Clamming, and on top of that, good weather.
We are a little odd, but who is`nt? Please consider coming and fishing with us! We will always do our very best to give you the best fishing guide trips possible, no matter what you seek when it comes to swimming things…Cheers!
