This passion for sharing the river shows in his client's experiences and ensures that the resource and beauty is there for future generations. Derek has been an Orvis Endorsed Guide since 2009 and was the Orvis Endorsed Guide Of The Year in 2011.

What we do

Professionally guided fly fishing float and wade trips and instruction. Catch and release only.

Where we do it

Experience a full or half-day float trip in a dynamic river environment and Washington's only blue ribbon trout stream as it winds through open prairies, deep canyons, and dense, tree-lined stretches only a 90-minute drive from the Seattle metro area. Or, stay close to Seattle and fish the Snoqualmie River or Puget Sound beaches - we can show you it all!
