General Information
All our local streams have steelhead that average 8-12 lbs in weight with plenty in the 14-18 lbs range to keep the interest high and the rod hand a bit "shaky" . Only those times when major weather patterns are in our area are the streams unfishable, and then only for a few days as most drop and clear quickly.

We have both float and walk-in trips.

We are a state licensed guide service and have many years of experience on the rivers and streams of Southwest Washington.

We recommend a 50% deposit to secure a booking date.

Kalama River
Only 30 minutes north of  the shoppe, some of the finest fishing for steelhead on the west coast comes from this lengendary stream and it's only 25 min. from town. My first steelhead that I landed after moving to Wa. some 32 yrs. ago came from the Kalama, not my very first steelie but one I'll never forget. There's something special about a steelhead on the fly even after 40 yrs.now and 2,000 fish later each is still a treasure and one of the great thrills in all of flyfishing. 

East Fork Lewis River
Located only 9 miles from our shoppe, it's a relatively small stream but has one of the best runs in WA. (Washington state record of 32+ lbs came from this prolific stream). The East Fork is blessed with year around returns with April, May, June, September, October, and November being the prime fly months.

Deschutes Basin Private Lakes 2013.  Monday, May 6 and Monday, May 20.  Only  $225.00/Rod.
Through our great friends John & Amy Hazel at The Deschutes Angler Fly Shoppe we have access to over 30 private lakes just 2 1/2 hours from Vancouver.  These lakes teem with huge Kamloop Rainbow Trout, ranging in size from 17 to 30 inches.  The lakes are all fly fishing only, catch & release.  Mark will have room for up to 8(eight) anglers each day.  He will be there during each outing.  Pick a day or two and join him on this fantastic private fishery.  There are still a few spots open.   

Deli-style lunch provided.

Washougal River
Only 20 miles east of our shoppe at the entrance to the Columbia Gorge, it's famous hatchery produces a strain of steelhead that is the most productive of all. It is a stream much like the East Fork Lewis in size and season, but has it's own character and charm. In the last 18 years Mark has spent many hours on this famous Washington tributary.

Klickitat River
One of our favorite late summer and fall steelhead streams located further up the Columbia Gorge. About 70 miles from our shoppe, it's a larger stream that has many opportunities and varieties of water. It originates on the slopes of Mt. Adams and is a glacial river that clears up in late August through October. What a treat!
