Owyhee River Journal.

Join Steve on a journey to the Owyhee River located in Eastern Oregon.  This blue ribbon fishery offers anglers unique opportunities to stalk wild Brown Trout with a back drop of stunning high desert scenery.  The program includes a gallery of photos compiled from Steve's numerous trips to this remote, scenic river. Learn the secrets to angling on this reliable year round fishery that consistently produces Brown Trout exceeding 20 inches.  Possibly the West's best kept secret.

Steve's BIO

 Steve was born and raised in Stockton, California, where he lives today with his wife and youngest son. Growing up in a fishing family his passion for angling began at a very early age. His father, Carl, helped pioneer the Monterey Bay blue shark fishery in the early sixties. Steve, a fly fisher at heart, began to develop salt water fly fishing strategies and by the mid eighties, Steve owned his own boat and was guiding for a number of off shore species. Steve’s reputation as a guide and knowledge of the central coast salt water fishing scene earned him a spot on the Budweiser national fishing team, and attracted national sponsors such as Sea Ray boats and Mercury out-board motors. Major sponsorships gave Steve the opportunity to present his slide shows and seminars throughout California. Currently, Steve is owner/operator and head guide for The High Plain’s Drifters Guide Service, devoting most of his summers to exploring the remote regions of Eastern Oregon and Washington; taking the roads less traveled exploring rivers and streams often overlooked by the general angling population.  His programs, Bronze Back Fever, and Owyhee River Journal document the trials, tribulations, joys and heart aches encountered when fishing remote locations.  In spite of himself, every now and then, he stumbles onto some great fishing!
