3 guides later, I finally caught my first Coho and Rockfish. I went out with Dustin and a friend and we limited out fairly early. Finally being able to land my first Coho and Rockfish was an awesome experience.
Dustin was also a very thoughtful guide and had extra equipment for the whole boat. Already plan on another trip with him.

I"m a beginner fisherman and wanted to learn the process of catching fish (particularly steelhead). I was recommended by a friend to contact Dustin at Drift Northwest Fishing and I can tell you that it was a great decision.
Right off the bat, Dustin was very professional. He was very clear about the trip details along with providing all the gear. The only thing I had to do was get a fishing license and away we went. Dustin was very patient with me as well which I was really happy about.
To sum the whole trip up, you should know that I caught not one but three steelhead that day (my first ever steelhead in my life). I was above and beyond happy with my experience and would highly suggest working with him.

Thanks for your great mentor-ship and helping me learn the ropes. I can tell you all now that fishing is my new hobby and something i wish i got into years ago.

Thanks again,
Preston

Had a blast. Dustin set us up with everything we needed and coached us through the whole day. Got a few hooks caught in the trees and he was super patient. The first time we went out he hooked me on a HUGE chum. Fish was so big, my arms were falling off by the end. Will rebook next time I’m in the PNW!

Dustin had it all worked out.
Rods were all set up and he told me were to throw it, and I caught a bunch of fish.
It was my first time drifting and I was hooked. My 3 mo old pup Drake joined us on the float down the Wilson.
We came home with 4 crome Chinook.

Did a full-day drift with Dustin on the lower Wilson River with my father. We didn't catch (or hook) any fish, but it wasn't for lack of trying. We fished every possible way (flyfishing, back-bouncing, bobbers, drifting, eggs, lures, etc.) and Dustin put us in prime position on every hole. All the gear on his brand-new drift boat is fantastic, including the rods, bait, lure, etc. Having grown up salmon/steelhead fishing the Wilson I know how some days there are just no fish to be had, but Justin worked his ass off trying to get us in to fish. He knew every hole and how to position us to fish it. Great demeanor. Can't say enough about his ethics, focus, and professionalism -- especially given the unfortunate realities of a no-fish day.

What a fun, exciting day! We caught two chinook and a bunchof crab with Dustin. He's super knowledgeable about the area, and landed us on some giant fish. This was an awesome expereince and I'll definitely be going out with Drift Northwest again.

We met Dustin at the boat launch meeting spot where he had the boat in the water ready to go. We hurried in with life vests on to get “the spot” it was a nice day on the river. He was patient with us, all first timers, have great explanation on the technique and rational behind drifting. Awesome experience, very knowledgeable, and kept the reels hot. Would highly recommend!

We showed up early in the morning and Dustin had the boat launched and everything ready to go. We floated for a full day, caught a several fish- he know ALL the spots. Dustin was super knowledgeable about the area and the species of fish. Not only was it a successful fishing trip but we learned all about the river and it's ecology!
