Larry Averett has been fishing Oregon rivers since the age of 12, and has been now over 25 years as a licensed guide in Southwest Oregon. He grew up fishing the North Umpqua River from his uncle’s cabin located on its banks. Since then, he has learned the secrets of many of Southern Oregon’s majestic rivers. Larry has over 25 years of fishing experience to guide you with. Southern Oregon has a wide variety of scenic and beautiful rivers to fish. Depending on when and what kind of fishing you would like to do, you can fish the world famous Umpqua and Rogue river systems to the remote rivers like the Coquille and Smith. You can locate them on the map above. Our Guides have many years of fishing experience, with many tournaments and Derby winners, and are willing to share it with you. Many large fishing lodges just take you fishing and don’t show you the ropes. We will take you to some of our favorite spots where the fish like to hang out. Michael, Gary and myself are among our staff of guides that will ensure you have a good time. So book a trip of a lifetime for that trophy fish that you will always remember. We can also set up your trip from as little as just going fishing, to setting up lodging, meals and whatever is needed to make your trip work for you.
Michael Shearer has been fishing these rivers since a young age — would you believe the age of 4. He has been fishing Oregon and California rivers for over 30 years. Michael has many outstanding credentials and qualifications having worked most of his life in the great outdoors. Come and learn from him about Oregon's outdoor adventures. Michael loves the beautiful North Umpqua River as he watches from the deck on his house located at the unique area where the North Umpqua and Little River meet. (The only place in the world where two rivers meet head on.)
