Learn about John Elder, and his fishing guide service that targets Salmon, Steelhead, Sturgeon, Kokanee, Ocean Rock Bottom Fish, and Lake Trout in Oregon rivers and lakes.
John grew up fishing for Salmon and Steelhead on the South Santiam River and spent over 25 years fishing the Spring Chinook and Summer Steelhead runs that have made the South Santiam an angling favorite. He learned the fishery very well from both the bank and from the boat. The last 10 years he’s spent refining his boaters skills and venturing out learning new waters and new techniques.
John Elder is one of the hardest working guides you will find when it comes to persistence and preparation. He is always researching new techniques and gear for improved results.
Come jump in and enjoy a fun day of fishing.
Our goal is to provide excellent guided fishing trips targeting Salmon, Steelhead, Sturgeon, Kokanee, Ocean Rock Bottom Fish, and Lake Trout.
