Great experience!! VERY Professional. We were the only boat on river that caught a 15lb+ Salmon on a tough day but he got me to the right place at the right time. My wife bought me this guided fishing trip as a gift and I am so happy that she picked the right guy!!

Joe Terleski's knowledge and confidence on the water says it all. He is focused on providing an incredible trip for his clients no matter what the skill set. Fly fishing, lures, back-bouncing, trolling, Joe does it all with years of experience and passion for the sport. Based on many years of fishing with Joe I can say he is one of the most skilled guides you can find. I highly recommend Rather B Fishing Guide Service as one of the top guide services in the area.

Chartered boat to fish for salmon on the Columbia river. We fished hard but only had 5 strikes and two fish in the boat. Next time, hope to catch more fish.

We went to Buoy 10 with Derek Aug 17, 2014. Got our lines in the water and started hooking fish. We hooked a number of Chinook and Coho. It was a hot bite. We released a few natives and fish got off before the net but Derek kept at it and we went home with one Coho and two real nice Coho. We have our own boat but wanted to fish the first day with someone that has been fishing Buoy 10 long enough to figure out what is working. We used the same techniques the next two days to hook salmon. Great way to get a fishing trip started. Derek's new boat really is nice with plenty of room and really big and safe if the water gets rough. We have fished with him six times now. Three times in the new boat.

About

Imagine floating down the East Fork of the Lewis River for big beautiful hatchery and wild native steelhead during our great Northwest winters. Picture slipping into your waders as we enter the pristine waters of the Kalama River as you pursue the famed spring Chinook salmon in April and May. If you love to fish for both steelhead and salmon on the same trip join us for a trip down the glacier fed Klickitat River in the fabulous Columbia River Gorge in the fall. We have great weather, huge wild fish and remote and scenic waters. It's probably the best summer steelhead fishing in the State of Washington is on the "Klick" Sept-Nov. SW Washington is in the very heart of the mighty Columbia River basin and is world famous for it's magnificent steelhead and salmon fishing. We specialize in private, professionally guided, drift-boat fishing trips. We welcome you to join us on our spacious and comfortable 18 ft., custom-designed ClackaCraft guide boat with rooms for up to 4 in your private party.

"Thanks again for an exceptional day, Monty. That was the biggest steelhead I've ever caught and can't wait to go again." Summer is fast approaching, and I'm looking forward to going to Alaska once again and fishing out of Rainbow River Lodge in June and July. I'm coming home early this year; however, to set up Reel Adventures Klickitat "tent camp" right on the beautiful banks of the Klickitat River. Skip staying in motels this year and come stay with us in our fully equipped and very comfortable camp. We'll feed you 3 meals a day, keep you warm and dry in our riverside tents fully stocked with everything you'll need during your overnight stay. All you'll need is a sleeping bag and some extra energy as you can fish well into the night right in front of camp or get up early and fish before we head out on the boat for your day of fishing. Those who know about the Klickitat and what it has to offer continue to come back with us year after year. If you want to experience the very best of the Pacific Northwest book a trip with us in Sept/Oct/Nov. If you can't make a multi-day trip just come out for the day and fish. We offer both fly and conventional tackle fishing trips and provide nothing but the very best rods, reels and tackle. We fish many rivers throughout the States of Washington and Alaska. Depending upon the time of the year you might catch us on the Olympic Peninsula fishing the Hoh, the Sol Duc or maybe the famed Bogachiel River. Most every summer, you will find us fishing the untouched waters of Alaska. This coming 2015 season, we'll be fishing out of the fabulous Rainbow River Lodge out of Iliamna near the Katmai National Park. Check them out at Rainbow River Lodge. So, if you're searching for that big trophy steelhead or acrobatic silver/coho salmon or even that evasive spring Chinook salmon, Reel Adventures Guide Service will be where the fish are and so can you.
