     Although it’s only been 3-4 trips, each one had outstanding qualities and service, expertise and time on the water are so important for someone like me who does not get out like he’d like to. My family and I have great memories including my then 12 yr old twin sons first ever steelhead (they are now 20 and Jrs in college). A 3 steelhead fish day for me with you on the Lewiston in a 100 plus heat (didn’t know they would even bite in that heat). And a day with your colleague 2 summers ago that started on the Columbia for steelhead, but the wind blew and the bite was so tough we had to pack it all in and trailer over to the Lewis for an outstanding afternoon of salmon and steelhead for my then 18 yr old son and our 14 yr old nephew who caught his first ever salmon and steelhead that afternoon with a total of 5 fish.
You can use me as a reference anytime.

Erik: Just wanted to say thanks again for a great 3-day trip. We all agreed you were the friendliest, most knowledgeable, and most service-minded fishing guide we've had in our many years of fishing trips up and down the North American continent. I hope that we can book another trip with you in the future. I'm attaching a few pics from our trip, including I'm sure, the only one with an i-Pad in the background! All the best for your business and to your family."

"Thanks for a great trip on Saturday. Photo of you and Jon with his First Steelhead. I have three hunts coming up September, October, November so tied up for a quick return trip. Jon and I will definitely be back though to fish with you. I have fished with guides in several places and would recommend you to anyone wanting a great fishing day in the Northwest."

"Erik, I just wanted to tell you that we had a very good time Saturday, and that im glad that we were able to get Staci her first salmon. At least you make the trip enjoyable even when the fish aren't biting. We would like to book another trip with you, but not sure for what."
     -Thanks a lot- Jason

"Erik, I just wanted to let you know what a fantastic day we had yesterday! The weather was awesome the “catching” was beyond belief, and you were terrific! The heat on the boat helped in the morning until the sun took over, and we could not have asked for a better guide!"
Thank you so very much.

"I've taken several trips with lots of fishing guides. Being the editor of a popular Northwest fishing publication & website and I really get around. I have taken 3 different trips with Erik. Well I can tell you one thing without exception. ERIK KNOWS HOW TO CATCH FISH. And that's a fact. He has a reputation with many of the other local guides of being one of the best fishing guides out there. But there's something more that may even be just as important. Erik may just be the nicest guy and the friendliest guide I've ever fished with. He's always helpful, patient and on the rainiest of days he still has the biggest grin on the planet! I can personally guaranty you that if you fish with Erik, you'll not only catch fish, but you'll have a great day with a really great and fun guide.

"The trip was very well done, better than expected. Erik did a great job and was very professional. I would definitely hire him again in the future and recommend him to others."
     -Don Evans, Portland OR

"I wanted to tell you what a terrific job you have done! Erik was promptly here at 6am. He handled himself very professionally. He performs every task with perfection. He continually cleans up meticulously throughout the day. His boat and gear are very well maintained. The way he handled himself with my customers was great. I couldn't have asked for anything more. We not only caught our limit of King Salmon, but he also cleaned and filleted them as well (like a pro). This is the second time I have used Erik's Fishing Adventures and plan to book many trips in the future. My customers were very happy and satisfied."
     -Karen Mason, Seattle WA

"I had Salmon for the party! I was under pressure to bring home fish for our Fourth of July party and Erik pulled it off! Tell Erik he did a fabulous job, I will definitely use him next time."
     -Morgan Wild, Portland OR

"Thank you for getting my husband and grandson out for a great day of Sturgeon fishing. Erik's Fishing Adventures is a blessing to disabled senior citizens and a real gem. I appreciate your ever ready assistance and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone."
     -Ester Johnson, Woodland WA

"Erik arrived on time on our December Steelhead trip. The heater kept me warm till I hooked into my 18lb. Steelhead. He was very personable and everything was completely satisfactory. Thank you."
     -Pat Cooper, Phoenix AZ

"I only trust Erik as my fishing guide. He is safe, provides professional and quality customer service, knows when and where the fish are biting, and I was amazed at his vast knowledge of the different fisheries."
     -Franklin Pierce, Boise ID

"We have used Erik's Fishing Adventures for more than ten years. We have fished for Salmon, Steelhead, Sturgeon and we have been satisfied with every trip. First, I would like to say Erik makes it fun to be out on the water. His gear is always neat and clean and he is very well organized. Lets not forget, this guy can catch fish! We look forward to many more years of fishing with Erik's Fishing Adventures. Thanks again."
     -Jack and Shannon Turner, Vancouver WA

"Four of us booked a Chinook Salmon fishing trip with Erik. Everyone in the boat caught our limit of Chinook Salmon early in the day. We thought the day was done but Erik took us to another spot and we started fishing for Coho Salmon. We limited out on the Coho Salmon too. Erik is the most knowledgeable and hardest working fishing guide I have ever fished with, and he is also the friendliest!"
     -Jerry Moreno, Olympia Washington
