  About Your Fishing Guide: My name is Rod Bush.  I’ve grown up fishing in the Northwest since I was a young kid on the shores of Greenlake and the docks of Golden gardens.  I used to skip school to go fishing and even made the front page in the Seattle Times paper on one of my adventures, which my parents were none too happy about! I have grown to love river fishing.  I got my first drift boat in the 80′s and not to long after that my first sled.  I can’t count how many of each I’ve owned since then.  My passion for catching steelhead and salmon has turned into a occupation as a river fishing guide here in the Northwest. I’ve been guiding for over 25 years now and have many secrets up my sleeves for those days when the fish just don’t want to cooperate.  I still love to fish when I’m not guiding so as you can see I’m truly addicted to this sport. I enjoy watching people light up with excitement when they land their first steelhead or salmon, or finally hold that prized catch of a lifetime in their arms!  I have several clients that have fished with me over the years and now I’m taking their children and even grandchildren fishing.  Wow how time flies! I’m also a professional career firefighter /officer and USCG Captain.  I take your safety on the water very seriously.  You can be assured I will take good care of you, your family, and your guests while you relax, catch fish, and just enjoy being on the water knowing I will handle the rest. Experiencing a quality guided trip down the river from my 25′ jetboat is the way to go.  I will provide you with all the bait and tackle you need and take your picture with that prize fish of a lifetime.  Relax and take in all the serenity and incredible scenery the river has to offer. You will have a chance to view: eagles, deer, coyotes, river otters, minks and many other types of wild life.  Bring your camera for all of this, as well as some of the most beautiful mountain views you will ever see. I look forward to meeting you and sharing my knowledge of how to catch fish in the Northwest and watching your face light up when that rod doubles over!  Fish on!!
