Winter Run Guide Service
Site Design - MrTechie
This was my first guided trip and was very
impressed! Ted is a true profesional and very
knowledgeable of the rivers he targets and saftey is
always first. Ted put us in the fish and made sure to
show me when and where to put my gear for a
sucessful trip. I highly recommend Teds WINTER
RUN GUIDE SERVICE for a fun and informative
float! thanks Ted
I had a great time fishing with Ted, he doesn't just
tell you what to do along the river the river he tells
why,how, and the reason to use this lure or that
lure. I went away knowing more than I came with.
The nice hot lunch along the river was great, more
than I expected. I already booked my next
trip.Beautiful scenery along the Wynoochie and fish
in the cooler, what a great day.
Ted is not just a fishing guide, but a teacher. I was
impressed with his knowledge level, expertise, and
patience! I caught my first steelhead, and I credit
Ted's talent and skills. We couldn't have asked for
better weather, and the scenery was spectacular!
Ted was a great guide! My friend and I are new to
fishing and decided to go on a guided trip to learn
more about the sport. Ted took care of everything.
He had all of the gear set and ready to start fishing
as soon as we hit the water. He showed us how to
cast, then told us when and where to cast. He was
also organized and fast at re-rigging the poles when
we got the line tangled in a tree…several times. I
ended up catching a HUGE Steelhead and have
great pictures to prove it! We had a great time and
are planning to take our next trip with Ted.
As a longtime salt and freshwater fisherman, I
never made it onto a river to chase steelhead.
Thanks to you, I found the experience very
educational and fun. And we even saw you put one
in the net! I would encourage anyone, including a
beginner like me, to consider floating a river with
you. Thanks for your patience Ted.

It was a beautiful January morning, when we
pushed away from shore onto the Wynoochee River
near Montesano,Wa. My guide, Ted Schuman-
firstname.lastname@example.org, had met me near the
River. I don’t consider myself a novice fisherman,
but I’m not truly experienced either. Ted on the other
hand is very experienced and knowledgeable and
within 15 minutes of the float, he put me on a
beautiful steelhead trout. After a brief battle, the fish
became airborne a mere 10 feet from our boat,
looked at me with a smile, and spit the hook.
Although disappointed, I felt there would be many
more chances as the day went on. Ted guided
tirelessly, keeping the boat at just the right speed.
He had me fishing with several different rods,
depending whether we were bobber fishing,
bouncing our bait along the bottom of the river, or
fishing a plug (always two plugs, I’ll let Ted
explain). It was obvious that Ted knew both the
river and the steelhead trout. Is was not until early
afternoon, before I hooked and, after an extensive
battle, landed a beautiful 16 pound (2-salt) steelhead
trout. It was a beautiful fish and was the
centerpiece of our extended family dinner the
following Sunday. Because of Ted’s unique way of
cleaning the fish, it was absolutely delicious. It was
an incredible experience and definitely not the last
time I will be using Ted as my guide. What a day!
