Steelhead fishing is
better in the local Northwest waters near Portland,
Oregon than most other places anywhere. Every year
anglers come from all around the world to battle these
hard fighting fish. Many say that Steelhead are the
hardest fighting fish (pound for pound) that you will
ever catch. They often take off on long runs and they
continually jump several feet out of the water. Come
fish with Dave Maroon on the Columbia River, the the John
Day river and the Sandy river and see why clients return year after year for
these popular runs.
SUMMER STEELHEAD: Summer Steelhead are the
most acrobatic and aggressive fish in our rivers. Numerous jumps
and runs are common while hooked.

They are very good eating and
thrilling to catch. Catching 4 to 10 fish a day is common. I
fish on the Columbia River, the Sandy river and the John Day
river arm for these fish. Summer Steelhead fishing is best from
June through November.
WINTER STEELHEAD: Winter Steelhead - Winter steelhead offer
quite a different challenge. I do all of my Winter steelhead
fishing out of my driftboat on the Sandy river.
These trips are
scenic, relaxing and you will be sure to have many lasting
memories after your trip. Like summer steelhead, winter
steelhead are excellent eating, very feisty and quite numerous.
Please keep in mind that weather conditions play a large role in
the success of one of these trips so give me a call when you are
considering fishing for Winter Steelhead. Winter Steelheading is
best in December, January and February.
