Being a lifelong fisherman with over 23 years guide experience, Mike’s knowledge of western Washington rivers and the habits of its prized Salmon and Steelhead will put your catches above the rest. If they are here you will catch them.

Columbia, Cowlitz, Lewis, Chehalis and Kalama Rivers
These rivers are within easy reach of Seattle or Portland and surrounding areas. The Columbia, Cowlitz, Chehalis, Kalama and Lewis Rivers provide the best Steelhead and Salmon fishing in the lower 48 states. Salmon over 40 pounds and 20 pound Steelhead are not an uncommon catch for the prepared fisherman. A fish half those weights at the end of your line will guarantee an arm-throbbing, adrenaline pumping experience you’ll never forget. After a few photo’s you can release, or you can bring it home for the family dinner, if it’s a keeper.
