As a Washington State Fishing Guide I have been fishing for Steelhead, Salmon and Trout for over 33 years and as you can tell ... this is my passion. Being part of someone else catching their first Steelhead, Salmon or maybe the biggest fish gets me excited too! I am a people person and I love to coach my clients as they are fighting their fish and to see that look on their face when they finally land it... that's why I am a Seattle Fishing Guide and have been for over 10 years!
Ray Vermillion/ Guide/Owner
"My buddy and I had a great time, and fully intend on repeating the trip next year. Ray is a professional who knows the river well and what holes to hit. His boat and equipment were up to snuff and that little heater kept us warm on our cold morning. He provided all the equipment necessary and Ray even carries extra poles, which reduced downtime when we switched from one style of fishing to another. All the fish we hooked into were strong fighters but landing a 40lb king (it was 50lbs by the time I got home) provided the lasting memory."
" The river itself was beautiful, with hawks, eagles, and other wildlife were quite abundant. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, I'd rate that trip a solid 9 (It would have been a 10 if I could have kept the 40 lb fish!). If a memorable experience with a professional guide is what you are looking for, Ray is it."
"Simply put, Ray is my favorite fishing guide. I average four to five guided trips per year in a variety of fisheries, but fishing with Ray on the Peninsula Rivers has become my favorite. Ray is always impeccably prepared and his drift boat is awesome. Bottom line is we catch fish!"
"I have fished with Ray Vermillion for over 30 years and am convinced he is one of the premier Pacific Northwest river guides. He has honed his skills over the years and continues to produce excellent fishing results in many Puget Sound & Olympic Peninsula Rivers. You will not be disappointed when fishing with Ray."
