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

The Kalama River is located in Cowlitz County in
Southwest Washington State and is one of the best
Spring Chinook and Summer Run Steelhead Rivers of
the Columbia River tributaries.  

The Kalama is also known for it's beauty!  Most of
the river is only accessed by non motorize drift
boats, so it can make for a great day kayaking,
fishing or sightseeing!

Kalama, pronounced kuh-LAM-uh, means pretty
maiden or flaming torch, and is an uncommon girls

The Kalama River is located in Kalama, Washington
and is a short distance from the Portland
International Airport (PDX)

We target the Kalama River in Washington State
throughout the months of April, May and June for
Spring Salmon.

Spring Chinook, or Springers, average 12 to 15
pounds, with some in the upper 20's.  Spring
Chinook are one of the most sought after table
fare of the
salmon species.  

We generally target summer run
thoughout the months of May, June and July.  
These summer run
steelhead range from 5 to 10
pounds with many in the upper teens.

With low pressure in the summer months, on the
Kalama River, these fish are very aggressive biters
and fun to catch.
