With over four decades of experience, Rivers Bend Outfitters professional guide, Glenn Summers, provides an exceptional value and a memorable adventure for your next Oregon fishing trip or hunting adventure!

Headquartered at the end of the Oregon Trail and at the eastern gate of the vast Columbia River Gorge Scenic Area, our fishing and hunting trips offer an outdoor feast to even the most experienced sportsman.

Cutting the only river route through the Cascade Mountain Range, the Columbia River Gorge is a spectacular canyon that is about 80 miles long and up to 2,500 feet deep with the north canyon walls in Washington State and the south canyon walls in Oregon State.

The Gorge offers outdoor activities for families including hiking, mountain biking, windsurfing, camping, fishing, boating, outdoor dining and of course lots more. Indoor options include museums, art galleries, wine tasting, shopping and more. As you Travel the Gorge, stop at any of the small towns along the Columbia River - Hood River, White Salmon, The Dalles - for a personal friendly atmosphere with something for everyone to experience.

Africa at last!!! Don't forget to read about my latest hunting trips to Africa for Impala, Eland and Cape Buffalo.
