Come learn to fly fish! Wardog Guide Service is here to put you on the fish and show you the beauty of its local rivers. You can explore the McKenzie, Willamette, and Umpqua Rivers with Captain Brandon.

Brandon is dedicated to helping anglers of all skill levels enjoy fly fishing opportunities across the Willamette valley. From building and developing each angler’s technique and skillset to connecting flies to fish, he’s got you covered. Come out and enjoy what his local lakes and rivers have to offer.

The trip starts on a 17’ ClackaCraft drift boat that accommodates up to 2 guests. You can always count on a safe and reliable ride, no matter what time of year you visit.

The local rivers and lakes offer many fish species, such as Smallmouth Bass, Crappie, Steelhead, Rainbow, Red Band, and Cutthroat Trout. If there’s another species you already have in mind that you’d like to go after, let the captain know in advance so he can plan the perfect trip.

If you enjoy keeping and eating your fish, you’ll be glad to know that you get to keep the catch on select float trips.

All fishing equipment is covered by the captain. For full-day trips, he’ll also prepare a riverside meal, snacks, and drinks to ensure your trip is top-notch and you can focus on the fishing.

Let’s go find your fish!
