Anadromous:  The Best of Stream and Sea

Based in Portland, Anadromous Anglers is situated minutes from the Clackamas and central to many other Willamette Valley and Coastal steelhead rivers.  Casting and fishing two-handed rods is a passion for us, and we feel that steelhead are a special fish that offer the best of stream and sea.  We also happen to think steelhead flies are pretty cool, too.  Think we are like- minded?  Lets go.

Usual great job by Nick. Truly nobody I’d rather have handling a drift boat in tough conditions. Easy going and fun to be with-and did I mention Fishy as all get out.

Thank you Nick for three great days on the coast! You have extraordinary knowlege of the rivers, fish runs and techniques. Your attention to detail, boat skills-with a heavy eye on safety, and tremendous “fishy knowlege” are without equal. Look forward to seeing you next year.
