Salmon and steelhead both follow a beautiful life cycle of swimming downstream, returning upstream to mate, taking the job at the mill their dad got for them, and spending the next 30 years paying off a fixed-rate mortgage. Shake up their routine with this Groupon.

West Coast Anglers
White sturgeon on Washington's Columbia River. Chinook salmon on Alaska's inlets. Steelhead on Idaho's Clearwater River. West Coast Anglers' network of guides organizes trips throughout the Pacific Northwest in search of these species, specializing in fly-fishing and spey casting to catch the five main species of Pacific salmon. In addition to hooking these river-running trophies, the guides' extend their expertise to drifting and wading trips for rainbow trout, sea-run cutthroat trout, and even dungeness crab. Though West Coast does not operate its own lodges, its guides are happy to recommend hollow logs to sleep in or more traditional accommodations.
