Larry Ford - The River Fishing Guide



I started fishing our local rivers in 1982 & immediately fell in love with them. Over the years I've fished many other areas in B.C., Oregon & California which I have also enjoyed but the rivers here have always been special for me due to the diversity of the watersheds & fish. The rivers here hold very large steelhead & salmon. It's one of the few areas in the U.S. that still has good numbers of native steelhead, fish that go over 30lbs!

 After many years of fishing with friends & family I was able to move here in 2004 & become a full time guide. I love my job & really enjoy meeting people from around the world.

If you are a beginner who wants to learn how to fish our rivers or a seasoned veteran you will find I have something to offer. I guide both conventional gear & flyfishermen & can teach you the techniques you need to consistently catch fish. I've been fishing Speyrods for 12 years & can teach you how to use these fish catching machines.

I guide on the Calawah, Sol Duc, Bogachiel, Hoh & Clearwater rivers. The rivers fished during your trip will depend on the water conditions & type of fish we are after.

I provide all gear & tackle, all you need is your fishing license, rain gear & lunch.


I'll be looking forward to fishing with you,
Larry Ford
