Fish and float down some of the most pristine and beautiful rivers that the lower 48 has to offer.
Winter steelhead trips are ran from December-March.
Conventional, fly fishing (nymph/swing/spey), combo trips
We love watching our wild fish swim away, and sticking the hatchery fish in your cooler.
We release all wild steelhead even in fisheries in Oregon that allow the take of these fish, as I feel that it is our duty to preserve the future stock of our fishery. They are incredible fish that we would all like to interact with for years to come.
The Coastal Rivers
The Chetco River
The Chetco River offers anglers an opportunity at catching trophy steelhead throughout the entire system. I have a permit to operate on the wild and scenic stretch that is regulated on how many guides can fish at a time. It’s a beautiful 15 mile float with a great opportunity for catching fresh Steelhead the can get upwards of 20 lbs.
The Smith River
The Smith River is one of the cleanest rivers in the world and has some of the biggest and “wildest” stock of steelhead that the entire country has to offer. The Smith River is located in Northern California and is the largest un damed river in California. The Smith River’s rugged headwaters offer great spawning habitat and high quality water for wild steelhead.
The Elk and Sixes Rivers
Just north of Port Orford in Oregon lies the Elk and the Sixes rivers. The Elk and Sixes Rivers offer us an additional opportunity at hooking into trophy Steelhead and finding river conditions that are ideal for steelhead fishing during winter steelhead conditions.
