Casey Kelly has been fishing Washington and Oregon rivers heavily for nearly 20 years. You would be hard pressed to find another fisherman out there that is more persistent and passionate about fishing. Casey was hooked on fishing at the age of four when his grandfather started taking him out on the Columbia River to what are now “secret” fishing spots for salmon, steelhead and sturgeon. Even at an early age he was determined to be a great fisherman and follow in the footsteps of his father and grandfather.
Casey hasn’t looked back since. Discovering how to make great bait and striving to make it better has been his goal for years. He now has many custom salmon egg cures, and other custom bait that all have their time and place for each river, species, day, and water condition. Spending countless days on local rivers figuring out “what they want” has made him a very good bait fisherman in all the areas he fishes.
Trolling herring for Columbia River Spring Chinook is also a deep love of Casey’s. Making a herring roll just perfect, trolling the desired speed and letting a tasty Spring Chinook bury the rod violently gives just about anybody a thrill, even Casey.
As a fishing guide, Casey knows the importance of being courteous and professional at all times, no matter how the fish are biting. Casey’s goal each trip, is to provide his customers with a fishing adventure they will never forget, and one they will want to repeat year after year. Casey is United States Coast Guard Licensed, fully insured, and CPR/first-aid trained. Your safety is always top priority, along with having a great time and catching a lot of fish!
