Catch More Steelhead

That’s what we all want right- to catch more fish. Not only do you learn casting techniques and efficiencies that lead to success we also teach you how to fish the Skagit line. Winter techniques are different than summer and we show the secret strategies you need to succeed.

This class is held on the Clackamas River during the winter steelhead run timing and on good steelhead water that we also guide and catch fish in regularly. Water level permitting we will use jet boats for this class to access the best water and allow you to work on your casting from both “river right” and “river left”.
