Captain Kevin Larson is an Oregon native who grew up on the water. When he was a young boy, Kevin spent summers and weekends on his father’s boat. He learned everything he knows about Steelhead, Sturgeon, Trout, and Salmon from his family. Kevin took that knowledge and later honed his angling skills as an adult. He is more than familiar with the best places to catch a fish in Oregon and knows how to make it fun. With over four decades of experience in the Pacific Northwest, Captain Kevin will make sure your trip is enjoyable!
