I began fishing the Umpqua River in 1971. It was at that time I fell in love with the area. In 1995, with the help and encouragemet of good friends and fellow guides Todd Hannah and Terry Jarmain, I began my full time guiding business.
As each year comes and goes I find myself more excited when a client hooks into a fish. It doesn't seem to matter if it's an 8 Lb. Coho Salmon or an 8Ft. White Sturgeon. It just does not get any better...Fish on!
I try to provide a trip that I myself, upon the conclusion of the day, would say, "That was a pretty good time". Regardless if it is the first time on a fishing trip, or you were born with a rod in hand, I'll provide the best trip I possibly can. Good fishing, and hope to see you aboard soon.
