Gary and Val Early are dedicated salmon and steelhead specialists, with 36 years EACH of guiding experience and know-how. They concentrate their year 'round efforts in Alaska and Oregon, fishing the most famous waters proven to produce some of the best opportunities an angler will ever experience.

Making Oregon/California Reservations: A 50% deposit is due at the time of booking to confirm your reservation date. The balance is due at the time of the trip. "No shows" will forfeit the deposit.

CANCELLATIONS: While we try to be understanding about emergency situations, we are a small, family run business. Many of our guests have become addicted to the thrill of fishing for Pacific Northwest chinook salmon and steelhead on Oregon's famous rivers. The timing and arrival of the runs allow top quality fishing from September through May. We invite you to read our "Oregon-California Fishing" and "West Coast Info" pages to familiarize yourself with the many opportunities we offer throughout the season. We also provide information on our photo album pages.

Cancellation notices received less than 14 days prior to trip have refunds based on the availability of rebooking that date, less any fees incurred. If we are able to fill your cancellation then your deposit will be applied to a future fishing date. We will work hard to fill your dates and many times have someone on "standby" but there are no guarantees that we will be able to do so. Any refunds will be processed in the form in which they are received.Mastercard, Visa, Discover or American Express are gladly accepted for your convenience.
