Having never fished or hunted with a guide in 50 years outdoors, I was a little apprehensive about the trip. Robert provided great instruction in a very friendly, patient, and reassuring manner.


He wanted me to get my very first steelhead trout every bit as much as I did. He worked hard at it, and the results showed. My partner and I caught seventeen fish in two days!

Thank you again for making our first drift boat fishing trip the most enjoyable fishing experience we have ever had.  You were highly recommended to us as a professional, experienced and knowledgeable guide with the highest quality gear and equipment of which you not only exceeded those recommendations, you also vastly exceeded our expectations and were key to the great time spent on the river.

Our keeper steelhead were delicious and the once in a lifetime 22 lb., 7 oz. steelhead we released to thrill another day was one of the many highlights of our beautiful and exciting river experience, as well as getting to meet and enjoy the river with you.

Looking forward to our next trip with you.

Having fished with Robert Stockton for the past 4 years, I can attest to his professionalism as a hard working, safe, and competent fishing guide.  His easy-going and fun personality compliments his superb fishing skills. Over 20 salmon/steelhead trips for us now and we have caught fish each time.

I have been fishing with Robert for the past 6 or 7 years. We have a group that returns each spring and fall to pursue steelhead on the Rogue and Umpqua rivers. In this entire time, we have never had a trip where we did not all catch fish, often much larger than expected. After fishing for steelhead in California for 20 years, both on my own and with multiple river guides, I never dreamed that so may fish, and such large fish, could be caught on such a consistent basis, when guided by a true professional..

Robert is knowledgeable, professional, and works very hard. He goes the extra mile to address he clientís needs, and give them the best opportunity for success. Iím looking forward to fishing with him for the next 20 years to come.

We wanted to take dad fishing, but being new to the sport, we were not sure how to arrange a trip for him.  Robert went far beyond our expectations with our steelhead fishing trip.  His fishing and rowing skills made our trip a family memory that we will continue to enjoy long after the fish we caught have  been eaten!!!  His patience with new fishermen and ability to help us catch fish is a mark of an outstanding fishing guide as well as a person.  We are already planning our next fishing trip and it will only be with Robert Stockton.  Again, thank you Robert!
