Brock Crocker of Crocker's Guide Service


Brock Crocker

I have been fishing since before I can remember. I was raised in Sweet Home, OR, fishing the South Santiam River and every/any little creek I could find around it! Some random facts regarding my fishing ventures…The first fish I can remember fighting was on a fly rod. I caught my first steelhead on a bobber and jig on my 7th birthday. I began tying flys and jigs when when I was 8 years old. I spent any, and all, of my free time in the summer on the river, or at Green Peter lake. Following my formative education, I went to Southern Oregon University to pursue a major in Outdoor Leadership. After achieving this, I started my guide service the very next year. It has now been six very successful years since then. I now guide full time, traveling around the western side of Oregon and fishing most rivers ranging from the Columbia to the Rogue. I fish out of a Pavati Guardian and Alumaweld Columbia.

Dan Fisher of Fisher's Guide Service


Dan Fisher

Born and raised in the pacific northwest, my love of fishing started at the young age of five. On the bank of the McKenzie River in my hometown of Eugene, OR, both my father and grandfather taught me the basics that forever sculpted an everlasting love, and appreciation for the outdoors. Those experiences on the river at such a young age propelled me into a life long passion of guiding. It is that passion that drives me to provide the best experience possible for each and every one of my clients. Whether it’s a client’s first time or fiftieth time on the water, I strive for an impactful experience each and every time.
