Day Fishing

Day fishing trips are offered year round. With the hatchery 'anadromous' fish runs increasing every year there is just about always some species of fish to capture your interest on our nearby rivers. If you have only a half day to two days we would love to introduce you to the various angling techniques that we use. You will find our guides very knowledgeable and patient. Eager to share and teach.

John Day

FISH ON! Blackbass fishing, smallmouth bass fishing or fishing for 'smallies". It makes little difference what name you use for these spunky fish, the main thing is to realize that they are very aggressive and fun fun fun to catch. This is a family smallmouth bass fishing adventure that will be remembered for a lifetime. We have also introduced this fabulous fishery to corporate fishing groups and fly fishing clubs. How would you like to catch (and release) 50+ smallmouth bass per person per day? We drift 35-58 miles of spectacular secluded river filled with smallmouth bass. The Department of Fish and Game estimates that there are 4000 smallmouth bass per mile. We rarely see another raft on the entire trip. We camp out under starlit skies, eat mouth-watering meals and experience camaraderie that can only be felt camping on a wild and scenic river.

What People Are Saying.

  • Don, Please find enclosed the pictures I promised to send to you. We all had a very good time on the fishing trip. The weather and fish really cooperated and your staff went overboard to keep everything going well. The food was great, the equipment super and the guides worked very hard. Most of the crew commented that this was the best trip we have been on yet. That is pretty good, considering that this is about our tenth trip, including trips to Alaska and Brazil. Again, thanks for everything and I hope to fish with you again soon.

    Sincerely, Bill Calvert
  • Barry keeps a journal of our vacations and I thought you would get a kick out of his exerpts from our "Don & Anne Adventures". If ever you wonder what kind of impact you have in peoples lives just keep these "memories" handy. It seems the highlight of our family vacations have been those Don & Anne adventures. I am worried now because Don & Barry were talking about Fiji. Not Sure if I can pull that one off!! Guess we will see you one or two times more for the Cal Salmon or a fishing trip. We look forward to it! Take care & thanks again.
