Fishing with Gaffneys!

 Beautiful fish, beautiful location and great instruction!

I'm a traveling nurse, working in Washington state for the last year during the Covid Pandemic. A few of my colleagues and I were looking for some fun way to let off some steam and fishing seemed like an awesome option in this state. With so many rules and regulations, I hired a Patric to help keep us on the straight and narrow as we were aware rules vary state to state. 

I went out on the Cowlitz River with Patric and with two different groups of women in the last 2 months. Fish can be fickle, but Patric stacked the odds in our favor.  He helped us with the most basic of instruction for the complete novice to more advanced details for the more experience fisherwoman.  He casted for us, untangled our lines, kept us where the fish were biting, and rooted us on.

Good natured with a good sense of humor we had a fantastic time fishing with Patric! Beautiful fish, beautiful location and great instruction... couldn't ask for more.  Particularly ideal instructor for the lady(ies) looking to break into this male dominated sport.

Will be going out again and whole-heartedly recommend Patric as a well versed fishing guide.

We had hooked salmon within 30 mins

Itís hard to explain just how fun the guided fishing trip was.  Patric is incredibly knowledgeable about fishing and all things associated with it.  He loves fishing and seems like he gets genuine enjoyment out of teaching people about his passion.  My wife and I are as beginner as it gets and we had hooked salmon within 30 mins of being out on the boat with his help. 

Not to mention heís extremely personable and an overall fun guy to be around.  Whether youíre a beginner or have years of experience do yourself a favor and book a trip with him, you wonít regret it.

He always puts us on fish...

I have been out steelhead fishing several times with Gaffney. He has always put us on fish and provides an excellent time for all levels of expertise.  I highly recommend using him for any fishing excursion.

Patric is awesome for a guide. He tries his best to get ya fish. The best part is he teaches you how to fish where most guides just out there for the money and don't share experience.
