Guided Excursions

Swede's Guided Fly Fishing Excursions
Swede's guided fly fishing adventures encompass many of the rivers, streams and lakes in Central and Eastern Washington. Whether your dream is chasing trophy steelhead or salmon, rainbow trout, cutthroat, smallmouth/largemouth bass or even northern pike or tiger musky, our competent and seasoned guide staff will work with you to make your adventure with us a memorable one.

Our experienced and knowledgable guides will be glad to put you on your favorite water, or simply take you somewhere new that you've never heard of. That's one of the nice things about our destinations is that we are not limited to fishing over-pressured bodies of water. How about a chance at a 15 lb rainbow in a local river or a 20" or better german brown from an Eastern Washington spring creek?
