Mid Columbia rive Guide owner Elmer Hill is a great guide.
We were on the water at first light, and he kept us out till sundown. We were on the fish the whole time, and were catching. Elmer really takes care of his clients, and cares if they catch, or not. This was my first charter where I felt the guide was informative, attentive, and entertaining.
I am booking again, and will probably stay with Elmer for my fishing needs.
