So Casey was right on point the whole time. Worked us at our level of fishing and recreation expectation but no more and no less. Wasn't afraid to make us regret mistakes that were ours and helped us avoid them. Really managed a good boat even though we had various levels of experience Although I haven't had more than a handful, i found my trusted fishing guide when in the area.read more

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

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
