Your Guide

Captain Ian Winder

I have been a fisherman my entire life. Fishing is something I am very passionate about. I love sharing this great sport; introducing people to the wilderness fishing experience, teaching new techniques and being a part of the excitement that every trophy brings is what I live for.

This is my twelth year guiding anglers in Alaska and Washington. In Cordova, Alaska I operated everything from river skiffs to offshore charter boats. During the summer months, I head to the offshore waters of Washington’s Coast. But when the first fall rains drench the Washington Coast, I focus on the solitude of Washington Coast’s rainforest rivers, where I operate guided fishing trips from my 17’ Willie drift boat. Every day I wake up excited to go to work and even more excited to share the experience of fishing the Olympic Peninsula with my guests!

The best part of the day is seeing the huge smiles on my clients’ faces as they catch their first salmon, first steelhead or maybe the biggest fish of their life.

Give me a call, let’s talk about getting you out on the river for some great fishing!
