Fishing with Bill was the best time I have ever had fishing. He gave my family and I one one of the most amazing fishing trips. My family can't wait to come back and fish with Bill again. He is incredibly knowledgeable and will work hard at making sure your trip is a memorable one!
If you have ever wanted to catch a big fish, Osprey Guide Adventures is where to go! Bill is a very skilled and experienced guide, he will teach you how to catch fish and you will have a great adventure!
My son & I have gone on two trips with Osprey Adventures this last year and they were both awesome experiences. Bill is a great guide, and he knows how to catch fish. Looking forward to going out with him again this year!
This past summer I booked a trip with Bill of Osprey Adventures to fish for Salmon in the Columbia River. On the trip I had with me a person who had never fished for Salmon before. Bill spent extra time with this individual and explained the tackle and techniques that would be used in terms that could easily be understand by a novice without it seeming that they were being talked down to. In my book this is the best example of an expert in his field: someone who can use layman terms to explain a process that is second nature to them. This extra time paid off as shortly this individual was fighting a feisty Columbia URB chinook. Bill coached him patiently on how to fight a large fish and then expertly netted a beautiful salmon. A great memory for all.
I highly recommend Bill as a fishing guide. He is someone who will come prepared with the right gear, fresh bait and a comfortable boat making for a great relaxing day on the water. He will work hard and put in the time to get you into a fish. He is not afraid to change techniques until he finds a method that is working. At the end of the day he will clean your catch and send you on the way. Bill is the consummate professional, no need to worry about rough language even when a rookie mistake is made. He is interested in making sure you have a great time.
If you are looking for a great guide, Osprey is the way to go! I have gone on two trips with Bill,  once bay clamming and once winter steelheading. Let me tell you,  I wasn't the least bit disappointed!  Bill is very knowledgeable about every service he has to offer. I encourage people to go on different trips with this guide in whatever you are interested in.  I know I will continue to go on trips with Osprey Guide Adventures, and I'm telling others about him.
As always Bill of Osprey Guide Adventures knew the water well. We floated by outstanding scenery and fished every part of the Nestucca. It was great to nail my first Winter Steelhead! A worthwhile Trip. Thanks "OGA" Jesse E.
I've never had my arms be sore from fighting so many steelhead! Thanks, Osprey Guide Adventures!
