All gear, tackle and transportation will be
provided. Here at C.A. Guide Service we offer fishing
trips for Steelhead, Salmon, Rainbow, Brown and Brook Trout, Pike, Walleye
and Bass. Although I am mostly a fly fishing guide for Steelhead, Trout and Salmon. I also offer spin trips for those not wishing to flyfish details below.
Flyfishing- we use all methods including, Nymphing for Steelhead,Trout and Salmon. Dry flies for Trout. I especially like Streamer fishing for BIG BROWNS when we have some color to the water or high water. I also like to night time fish for Trout during the Hex Hatch and Mousing in the late summer months. I'm proud to be a Orvis Endorsed Fly Fishing Guide and use all Orvis rods, reels, waders etc. on our trips.
I specialize in the Fall fishing for Salmon/ Pike with spin gear. It is my favorite way to catch a Salmon.They Smash Them Lures and try to rip the rod out of your hand. August 15th through October 7th are good dates for these method.
Hotshotting or Backdropping plugs for Steelhead is another way I offer for those not wishing to flyfish for Steelhead. This is a very laid back way to fish for them and very effective. October 15th through March 30th are good dates for these method.
All Spring or Summer is also good for light spin tackle for Trout with small spinners and small plugs. For those not wishing to flyfish.
There are two different boats to fish from. The
first is a 16' 2008 Clacka Craft (McKenzie style drift boat). It is a safe,
comfortable and durable river boat and a first class ride down
the river. The second is a18 ft. 2008 Power Drifter with a 65 HP Jet.The power drifter is well equipped for both flyfishing or hotshotting plugs.
It is also a very safe and nice boat to fish from.
