Our business started many many years ago when I was a young boy fishing with my grandfather on the very rivers that I currently guide on. Sure, many parts of the river have changed over the years. Countless hours and mistakes have proven our guide service to be one of the best in Steelhead Alley!!
We not only fish the main rivers, but also all of the feeder streams. We have written documentation from landowners on private property that allow us to go where no other fisherman can. This alone makes us better than the average guide, and gets us away from the increasing crowds on Steelhead Alley Rivers.
Our Guide Service is one of the only in the area that does not charge a fee if there is no fish caught. Believe me that makes our guides work for the fish. We will find the fish, guaranteed.
Ten years ago, there was not the steelhead in the river like there is now. We could go all day and be lucky to get four or five fish. Now, a good day is a 50 or 60 fish per person. The Ohio and P.A. trout stocking programs have been magnificent through the years.

We drift eggs, jig and maggots, flies, and also we can accomadate spoon & spinner fishing! Center pin and Fly Fishing can also be done with our guides! Although, these rod and reel setups can get very expensive so we would prefer that you bring your own rod and reel! Our Service offers all bait, terminal tackle, such as, swivels, hooks, splitshots, bobbers, and flies.
We do require that you bring your own neoprene waders, (3.5mm minimum it gets cold in the water and these offer good protection against the elements and abuse from rocks and general movement from fishing hole to fishing hole). Fishing rod and reel. If you need to know where to go to outfit yourself we can usually get you what you need prior to your trip!
