Harris Anglers | Oregon Steelhead Guide
Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest
, angling has been a major part of my life from the beginning. My dad was a certified steelhead junkie and my youth was spent plying local waters for willing players. Owner and operator of Harris Anglers
, I am a full-time, year-round fishing guide, which has been my dream from childhood.
My guide career began in 1999 on the famed waters of the upper Kenai on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula. I spent 16 productive years on the Kenai chasing some of the biggest, most aggressive rainbow trout in the world. During this time I pursued other guiding opportunities in the off-season, which in 2002 led me to the Deschutes River where I guided for four seasons in the Maupin area.
In 2009 I started Harris Anglers and began my own business, fishing my home waters of the Sandy and Clackamas, and several northern Oregon coastal rivers. Recently, In 2015 I partnered with Tom Larimer of Larimer Outfitters and returned to the Deschutes running single day and multi-day camp trips on the lower Deschutes. At present, I spend July through early November running a jet boat on the lower Deschutes running steelhead spey camps, and January through April running drift boat trips for winter/spring steelhead around Portland and the North Oregon Coast.
I am very passionate about sharing my knowledge and experience with my guests and believe that fishing is about more than just catching fish. I truly welcome all skill levels and embrace the opportunity to either introduce someone to the sport or hunt with a seasoned veteran.
