about Jordan

Fully Licensed and Insured Oregon Fishing Guide:

Guide No. 2501

An Oregon native, Jordan has been fishing the Pacific Northwest rivers for over 30 years. Born in Salem, Oregon and living in the Portland area. His local knowledge and expertise are the ingredients you need to put you on fish, and have memories that will last a lifetime. Jordan has been fishing the Sandy River since he was a young kid having a special place in his heart. The Sandy is a incredible river just minutes from Portland offering breath taking scenery and landscapes. Also having a special place in his heart is the Oregon coast range. With its rugged peaks and rain filled tributaries the coastal rivers of the NW are unique with fresh fish just hours out of the salt waters of the Pacific Ocean. Which is where Jordan came up with the name “Pacific Drifter” because of the analogy with all the river system flowing from the pristine mountain tops to the “Pacific” Ocean and the lifelong desire to pursue and explore “Drifter” valley to valley, river to river, mountain to mountain.
