Exploring big water with the fly in search of sea-run and radical fish!
Summer steelhead fly fishing at the mouth of a tributary on the Columbia River.
Fly fishing the Columbia River has been a long time passion for me and I am fortunate to have traveled and fished most of this mighty river from Cape Disappointment to Hugh Keenleyside Dam in BC. I have caught virtually every species of fish that thrives in the river on a fly. The topography changes in many places to incredible landscapes from tidewater, the Cascade Mountains, desert chaparral, and Canadian mountain ranges.
