Salmon Fishing Charters



Pacific Northwest Fishing Guide Ryan McCaughan

We are locally owned and operated and specialize in small & large rivers and streams. By knowing each river and its fish runs, we are able to provide a high success rate for hooking you up with fish. We fish specific Washington rivers at specific times  when the fish are running. This gives you the best chance of landing that trophy Salmon,  Steelhead or Sturgeon. Come enjoy a Washington and Oregon fishing trip with full-time fishing guide Ryan McCaughan.

About Ryan

I have lived in Washington State all of my life and grew up fishing with my father all of the local rivers and streams.  At the age of 7 I began fishing for salmon off the Edmonds pier.  I have a passion for fishing unlike anyone I know.  I specialize in fishing for large trophy size Salmon and Steelhead.  I take great pride in what I do and consider it a privilege to take people fishing.  I want everyone to catch fish on every trip and work tirelessly to provide the ultimate fishing experience for you.  I am a fun, friendly, dedicated, and very personable guy who is very easy to talk to and get along with.  I am a Licensed & Insured Washington and Oregon Fishing Guide, I have been a fishing guide for over 9 years now and look forward to have the opportunity to take you.
