Founder and operator of Small Stream Outfitters, Jesse has been fly fishing since age four. He began
guiding Oregon rivers while still in high school and continued to guide through college at Spokane's Gonzaga Univeristy.
Graduating with degrees in fine art and business, plus a minor in "flyfishing", he took his local knowledge North to Alaska.
Jesse guided at and managed remote fishing lodges in Western Alaska from 1997 until 2002. Missing his childhood streams, he returned to
Oregon and founded Small Stream Outfitters in 2003.
Jesse's passion and excitement for fishing is contagious. He enjoys nothing more than helping
a guest to the fish of a lifetime. His high energy, entertaining stories of the wild and appreciation of Oregon's beautiful places
will keep you smiling all day. He is an expert casting instructor, registered & certified
Oregon guide and trained in first aid & CPR.
