As always Casey was great and really made the trip enjoyable, it is
nice to see someone that actually likes their job and brings a great
attitude to work.  His knowledge is really helpful and refreshing.

Again just wanted to say thank you and let you guys know your
doing a great job and would be highly recommended to friends,
family and co-workers.

All my grandson wants to do is go fishing with Papa and Captain
Casey again.  At my age, one of the most important things in my life
is to have these treasured moments with my grandchildren, and this
was one of those moments.

Casey is an outstanding guide- this was the first time out fishing
with a guide for me and he did an excellent job of putting us on the
fish and giving us an excellent day on the river..... i will look
forward to fishing with Casey in the future for steelhead

Fishing is my only job, I will be chasing these fish
every day. It is very important to book with a full
time licensed and insured U.S. Coast Guard certified
fishing guide, who stays on top of these fish every
day and knows where they are, what they're biting
on and what they're planning on having for lunch.

We fish on the Columbia River for Columbia River
Spring Chinook, also called Springers or Spring
Columbia River Fall Chinook, also called
King Salmon or
Columbia River King Salmon,
Columbia River Coho and Columbia River Sturgeon.  
The Spring Chinook Return to the Columbia River
starting in February with increasing numbers during
the months of March, April, May and June.  The
