moved to Central Oregon in 1995 in part, to pursue big trout.
I consider this area to be the “trophy trout capital”
of the west and the state records for various species support
this. Consider a 9 lb. brook trout, 40 lb. lake trout, 28
lb. brown trout, 23 lb. bull trout and the second largest
rainbow of 24 lb. coming from lakes within a 100-mile radius
of Bend, Oregon..
spent my first few years learning the lakes of the area
and working on techniques. This has paid off with numerous
trophy trout including a 19 lb. 6 oz. brown trout from Wickiup,
25 lb. lake trout from Crescent, 13 lb. rainbow trout from
Klamath Lake, 15 lb. bull trout from Billy Chinook and 5
lb. 12 oz. brook trout from Crane Prairie.
a result of some of the these accomplishments, I’m
proud to be affiliated with the following companies in a
Pro-Staff capacity; Pro-Troll products, Shimano tackle,
Owner hooks, Power-Pro lines, Pro Cure scents, Shasta Tackle
Co., AC Plugs, Remotetroll, Lyman Lures, Walker Downriggers,
Viking Wear and Central Lakes Marine.
