Offering a fun, first class experience with safety as number one priority.
I have fished for steelhead, trout, and salmon nearly all my life. From the rivers of Southern Oregon to S.E. Alaska stream I've bank fished, jet sleded, and driftboat fished for the elusive steelhead. But my recent trip down the Wynoochee with Ted on a guided trip has to rank with as one of my most enjoyable. His boat skills, knowledge of the river and its fish holding areas is superior! Catching a nice Steelhead only added to my enjoyment of the day. Thank you Ted!

This January (2013), my son and I took our first drift boat fishing trip. We chose Winter Run Guide Service. It turned out to be an excellent choice. Ted is an exceptional guide and teacher. His ethics reflect his experience. He reads the water very well and gets you on the fish. My son caught his first steelhead, a 12 pounder! We had a great time and made some great memories. Can't wait to go again; we've already booked our next trip!

This past fall I had the opportunity to go on a guided trip with Ted Schuman’s Winter Run Guide Service on the Satsop river in southwestern Washington. First of all, I would like to say it was one of the most enjoyable guided trips that I've ever taken. Being an avid fisherman for over fifty years, I have been on guided trips from Alaska to Mexico. I found Ted to have a top of the line drift boat and safety equipment along with the finest fishing poles, bait and tackle. One of the things that impressed me about Ted was that he was well-versed on all the modern techniques for catching Steelhead and Salmon and he took the time to teach and share these techniques. By the end of the trip I had fought eleven salmon and had two in the box.

If you are an old pro or beginner you will enjoy fishing with Ted’s Winter Run Guide Service.

I can't wait to go on another trip with Ted!
