    Sam Sickles | Steelhead Outfitters

    Meet the Family

    Born and raised in Oregon where I've spent most of my life in the outdoors, hunting and fishing. I've been all over the Northwest and it’s shaped who I am and, to some degree, the way I think; but my path was not the normal path for a guide. I grew up in Springfield Oregon, home of the driftboat and home of the world-famous McKenzie River, where I caught my first steelhead. After high school I went to Oregon State where I graduated in 1994. I quickly joined the workforce and climbed the corporate ladder, got married, bought a house…later in life I decided to follow my passion. In 2008 I bought into a Deschutes River outfitter business. I bought the Jet Boat portion of that business in 2011 and Steelhead Outfitters was born. 

    Today my wife, Marni, and I own and operate Steelhead Outfitters - one of two fly fishing guide businesses that specialize in lower river jet boat trips on the Deschutes. I am the only guide offering jet boat trips initiating at the mouth as well as drift boat trips on the upper river where I spend my spring chasing the world famous Deschutes "redside”. Winter steelhead are my passion and I chase them on the Sandy and the Clackamas, the Olympic Peninsula, the Oregon Coast, and the list keeps growing. 



    I cater to all levels of angler. Whether you are just beginning your river journeys or you are a seasoned expert, you will find me knowledgeable, capable and conscientious. We hope to see you on the river this season. Be sure to check out our website for more information about what we do.
