Backcountry Guided Fly Fishing on the Upper North Umpqua
If you want to experience the magic of rarely fished waters of the upper North Umpqua, you are with the right guide. I will take you to the places where mostly only wildlife has access to.

Our trips are hike & wade, and are perfect for those who like to hike and experience the real wilderness and challenges in fly fishing. It can be for complete beginners and experienced fly anglers.

We’ll meet you at the desired location at the Steamboat Inn or Lemolo Lake Resort. We’ll gear-up and head out to the location for fishing on the North Umpqua River. Typical drive times range from 20 minutes to an hour. After parking we may hike for a mile or so. If you are a beginner, I will give instructions on casting first, and you will need to practice for at least half an hour.
I can bring a hearty riverside lunch, refreshments and about 6-7 hours of hiking and fishing.
Overnight Camping Fly Fishing Packages
The best way to experience and enjoy backcountry fly fishing (hike & wade) is coming to the upper North Umpqua in the morning and camping for at least two nights. This is our recommendation. You will gain plenty of local knowledge about the water, hatches and techniques not to mention continually covering new water and fish.
You will also leave hustle and fast pace of the modern world behind. Have you heard of the three-day effect? It’s been proven that on the third day your mind will be recalibrated, restored, and you will perform better in creative problem-solving.
