We are excited to be offering this opportunity for women who want to take themselves to the next level fly fishing for winter steelhead.
Join us on the beautiful North Umpqua, one of Oregon's most iconic steelhead rivers and immerse yourself in this 4 night 3 day steelhead adventure. Known as the "finishing school" of fly fishing for steelhead, the North Umpqua is a challenging and technical river that creates the prospect for learning on every cast.
Learn winter tactics that successfully catch steelhead with more finesse and less frustration. Our goal is to get you out fishing efficiently and effectively, but more importantly, build the skills and confidence to fish any river well in all winter conditions.
We have an exceptional line up of professional instructors and guides collaborating for this trip. Let us share our passion and knowledge of steelhead and the rivers they call home. Spend day one on the river in a women's only clinic with Mia Sheppard, Kate Sampsel, and Averi Wratney. Take your new skills on the hunt with North Umpqua Guides Tony Wratney, Dillon Renton, Clay Holloway and Jeff Carr.
