Captain
Cooper Hedgecock

Member since August 2017 Coos Bay, United States
Background
I started my fishing career in 1997 at the Baranof Wilderness Lodge in Alaska at age 12. I began as a deckhand and eventually got my captain's license at age 18. Since then I've been running guided trips, making 2017 my 20th year in this field. Southwestern Oregon's river systems have so much to offer, I decided to start Indigenous Adventures in 2013. I enjoy sharing Oregon's beautiful rivers and my knowledge of the wide variety of fishing techniques with all of my clients.
Techniques
I always enjoy trying new things. I use fly rods and conventional rods and reels. As for equipment I will use anything from bait to hardware.
