About Your Guide

Paulina Lake Brown Trout
Craig Schuhmann moved to Oregon with his family in 1980. This move was partly to accommodate his father's passion for steelhead fishing on the rivers of Oregon and Washington. When Craig was 10 he was initiated into his own passion for fly fishing with his father on the Owens River in California and again on the steelhead rivers in the Columbia Basin. He has managed to keep his fly rod working ever since. Taking particular interest in trout, he has spent numerous seasons living and fishing in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. Craig brings to play his interest in the totality of the sport through writing, fly tying, entomology, guiding, education and conservation. Under his business "Guided Waters Fly Fishing" Craig spends all of his time guiding on the Williamson and Wood rivers in Southern Oregon.

Craig began a career in writing in 2006 by accepting a contract to write a book for Moon Outdoors about Fishing in Oregon (see Books and Articles links). In 2015, he was appointed editor of Flyfishing & Tying Journal (Frank Amato Publications).

Craig holds a Masters of Arts in Theology from the University of Portland, obtained in 1996, and is the Director of Outreach for Integral Youth Services in Klamath Falls.
