Professional Washington Fishing Guide

Dave's Guide Service specializes in Salmon and Steelhead fishing. Guided fishing on the Hoh River, Cowlitz River, Sol Duc River and Bogachiel river in Washington.

David Mallahan was born and reared in Bellingham, Washington, and after catching my first fish at the age of 3 years old, I was totally hooked on fishing.

In elementary school during Christmas break, I would ride my bike to the river every morning. Fishing rod in hand, I would return home with my limit of steelhead and a big smile.  Now, I'm 44 years old and still smiling!

My experience includes fishing commercially in Alaska for salmon, fishing for anchovies and sardines in California and Oregon and guiding in Alaska and Washington state.
I have been  fishing the Olympic Peninsula rivers since I was 18 years old, and started fishing the Cowlitz river at 12 years old.
My baits have been personally hand-prepared to ensure the finest possible quality, and the rods and reels that I use are all top of the line equipment.
So, whether you are an experienced angler seeking a new experience or a novice seeking to create that first great memory, get in touch with me and I'll take you on a great day of fishing and breathtaking sightseeing.
