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
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.

East Fork Lewis
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.
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.

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.
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!
