My name is Stuart Hurd

I am a full-time professional guide with fishing experience all over Washington State.

Fishing year round brings top knowledge and skill to ensure you the best trip possible.  During the peak season from May-October, I spend an average of 6.5 days per week on the water. We will be fishing using top quality gear and boats including 24’ Alumaweld Super Vee Pro.

I am so confident you will catch fish on your trip- that I guarantee it or it is half off.
