Patrick loves the outdoors! In addition to his time as a guide, he also enjoys hunting and fishing. As a child, Patrick spent summers in Alaska fishing and exploring. He has a lot of experience on the river, including 4 ½ years commercial guiding out of Bend, and a handful of private trips. Commercially, he also ran the North Umpqua, McKenzie, Lower Deschutes and the Big Eddie section of the Upper Deschutes. But Patrick fell in love when he rowed the multi-day section of the Rogue last October. During the winter, he spends a month or two exploring Baja and surfing when he sees his parents, who live in Mexico. Patrick is also the proud father of Wyatt, a 3 ½-year-old lab. He’s excited to spend more time on the water as a private boater and see as many rivers as he can.
