Captain Quint guided trips include most everything you'll need: rods/reels/lines/leaders/tippets (or bring your own gear if you prefer), custom flies, complimentary photography, & some tall stories.

My McKenzie-river style drift boat is safe, fishy and comfortable for one or two anglers. If you have a larger group we can book more of my expert guide buddies. I gladly offer patient fly fishing 101 instruction if you are learning, but also can help with tips for all levels.

I will stealth you into position for large, oftentimes GIANT & ornery cruisers using my specialized tactics & flies.

These volcanic world-class fisheries haunt me. Visually stalking, hooking up & fighting such magnificent fish is an experience you’ll likely never forget. I'll bring reels with lots of backing...

 

These high mountain stillwaters are nature-rich fish factories that can fish well from spring ice out all the way through fall.

Weather, hatches, water-levels & recent scouting will determine which lake is fishing best during our outing.

Season: Apr - Oct

Let me row you into position for rising trout or lurking steelhead along a pristine stretch of the blue-ribbon McKenzie or upper Willamette river.  These are fast, difficult to bank access waters, but my drift boat allows safe, comfortable & easy access to all the fishy haunts along the way. This really maximizes your fishing opportunities.

 

These rivers are teaming with healthy red-side rainbow & cutthroat trout as well as a strong run of summer steelhead known to be biters & fighters.

We can focus on trout, steelhead, or both! A variety of tactics & fly setups will be available; especially dry flies & near surface nymphs for trout, streamers and surface skaters for steelhead.

Timing of our day & the section of river will be determined by the current hatch & the best fishing.

Season:

Trout: Mar - Oct

Steelhead: Apr - Nov

We'll swing flies for salt-fresh King & Coho salmon with specialized tactics from the comfort of a boat.

Getting chrome-bright king salmon on the fly is among the very best things I know of. This is why we dedicate every fall to learning everything we can on how to locate and catch them.

.

This is BIG game fishing that can really get your heart racing & arms worn out. Once you feel one of these near unstoppable behemoths tearing off line, you’ll be hooked!

Recent scouting, tides, & weather will determine where & when we fish.

Season: Sep - Dec
