Casey Kelly found room for two of us, last minute and we went out on the Columbia out of the Lewis and rocked them today. Limited the boat. Things started slow but managed to ramp up with Casey changing things up and moving until we found the herd. We really appreciated the effort and the professionalism. Looking forward to another adventure with Casey in the future.read more

Having fished in the Northwest for over 50 years, I am always pleased to meet and fish with new people who are truly dedicated to the sport. When needing to book a Buoy 10 trip at the last minute I fortunately found Casey Kelly. Casey had just two spots open, just the two I needed. Now, if you haven't ever been salmon fishing in a full boat, it can be a great deal of fun, or disaster, depending on the guide. With Casey it was as much fun as one person can handle. Watching Casey and his First Mate work was like watching a pair of professional basketball players…always in motion, always with their eyes on the goal, and always assisting their clients with the “slam dunk”. They never stopped talking, encouraging, directing, and laughing with the clients during the entire trip. The fish came hot and heavy and then stopped. Casey didn’t break stride, talking to his fellow guides on his phone and radio, searching the horizon, and then moving rapidly to another spot. Fish On! Repeat. All day long! We all came in with fish and the stories to go with them. If you are a first time salmon/steelhead fisherperson, or a seasoned veteran, Casey is the guide for you. Fishing gear, boat, and personnel are top of the line. Book early as Casey is quite busy. Call him for best times and openings. NOTE: I fished again with Casey during the fall Columbia River salmon run. What a great trip! One of those windy, half cloudy days with enough chop on the water to make you pay attention. Casey took us directly to the fish and all limited out in short order. I can’t say it is always that easy to limit, but if the fish are there, Casey is the man to get you on them. Thanks Casey.read more

Casey is awesome! Even when fishing was slow, he never gave up and stayed focused on the main goal of helping us catch fish! After a long day in the hot sun, his hard work paid off and we would have limited out if it wasn't for a couple natives we caught. Highly recommend him and we will be booking with him again in the future! Thank you again! --Nick and Chuck Bechardread more
