Steelhead Guide Review-Brian Silvey


Brian Silvey, Owner of a year-round Oregon flyfishing guide service operated from my home in Maupin, Oregon. Having grown up on the Deschutes and Sandy Rivers, I know these waters well and can guide you on a trip you won’t soon forget.I have been involved in the Flyfishing industry in many facets.

  • 23 years as a flyfishing guide along the banks of the Deschutes and Sandy Rivers.
  • Hold a degree in Fisheries – Fish Biology & Fisheries Management Oregon Dept of Fish & Wildlife as a experimental biologist aid
  • 28 years as a private and commercial Fly Tier
    Signature tier for Idylewilde Flies
    My flies have been in several Books and Magazines
  • Have instructed Fly Tying and Fly casting classes
  • Won the Best Of The West Fly casting contest in Seattle
    5 wt rod won with 102 ft cast – 1999
  • Certified as a Flyfishing casting instructor
    I use both conventional fly rods and traditional two handed (spey) rods

I love my job and when I have “down time” from guiding, you can find me enjoying the river, fishing … or rock hunting … with my son and daughter, or simply enjoying the surrounding beauty of the area.
