Todd Hannah has been personally to appear on several National TV fishing shows over the years. When these fishing show production people produce specials they seek only the very best fishing guides. Ratings and lots of fish being caught is what they must have or there is no show. Film and production crews cost thousands of dollars so time is money and they just can't afford to take chances with fishing guides who don't catch fish. If your time and money is important to you then you should also contact the very best there is. Do as all the National Television Fishing Shows listed below did. Select The Oregon Angler for the very best possible fishing trip.

America's Outdoor Journal

Todd Hannah was contacted by the popular National Television Show "America's Outdoor Journal" and asked if he would be their guide for a special on fishing for Bass on the Umpqua River. Todd fished a section of the Umpqua River which is known as "the loop" and is known for producing world class smallmouth bass. "The loop section of the Umpqua River" is situated in a private property area and has very limited access. The guides who have access to this prime smallmouth bass fishing section of the Umpqua river catch and release so the big fish are always there to provide fishing thrills for everyone who books a guided fishing trip with the Oregon Angler. Todd

Hannah and a few of his clients set a record for catching smallmouth bass here landing a total of 327 in one day! Salmon can also be caught here and during the television segment Todd landed a bright silver Chinook Salmon.

The fishing on the above outing was so good that "America's Outdoor Journal" returned for another round of Smallmouth Bass fishing and if you watch the Outdoor Channel on your cable or Satellite TV you may be able to see reruns of these popular shows from time to time. Better yet, contact The Oregon Angler and ask him to send you a tape with all the shows. Beware though, if you see these tapes you will BOOK A TRIP because seeing the best fishing in the Northwest in waters that are not crowded and scenery that is breathtaking is very exciting and you will not only book a trip with Todd, but you will find yourself not being able to wait 'til the day you get there and step foot on one of his boats.

ESPN OUTDOORS popular television fishing series "American Expeditions" selected the Oregon Angler Todd Hannah when they filmed their television show about "fishing the Umpqua" and guest host was Professional baseball pitcher (All Star & Cy Young winner) Steve Bedrosian. The Oregon Angler took Steve and the ESPN Outdoors crew for a day of Sturgeon fishing on the Umpqua River. Both keeper Sturgeon and Trophy Sturgeon make their homes in the depths of the Umpqua River and when you have a nationally famous Oregon fishing guide like Todd Hannah helping you to locate and catch these Sturgeon, it's "if" you will catch and but "how many" and that usually depends on how strong your arms are because Sturgeon on the Umpqua are veracious fighters and the thrill of landing one of these trophies can be addicting. You will likely find yourself booking another trip with Oregon Fishing Guide Todd Hannah, at the end of the day before you say your good byes!

COLUMBIA COUNTRY "Sport Fishing The Northwest" picked the Oregon Angler Todd Hannah to be their fishing guide for their weekly television show for a segment on Coho Salmon fishing on the Umpqua River.

This television show featured the Coho Salmon fishery at the mouth of the Umpqua. Todd used very light gear & 10 lb. test and spinning gear that made catching the huge Salmon EXTREMELY exciting. Sometimes you just have to see it to believe it, but catching 15 lb and larger Salmon on gear that is commonly used to catch Bass in an area where there are no crowds is very thrilling. Contact Todd Hannah and he will send you a copy of this video so you can see why some people consider this to be one of the most popular fisheries anywhere in the Northwest. As if that isn't enough, Todd also trolls with a little weight and some special spinners in this same area to get down a little lower and catch the bigger Chinook Salmon. The Umpqua River is a year 'round fishery. Depending on the season, anglers can expect to catch Stripers (Striped Bass), trophy Smallmouth Bass and the American Shad. There are three different species of Salmon, The Spring Chinook, Fall Chinook and Coho Salmon, and Steelhead. Call Todd Hannah today and book a trip now. Smaller groups of 2 to 6 people can usually find openings with a 2 week notice. Larger business and corporate bookings take a little more preparation and require a little more advanced notice.

Note: The fishing was so good on this trip that Columbia Country booked another trip with Todd to fish for Spring Steelhead on the popular coastal Elk River. On this show they drifted eggs, pulled plugs, used sand shrimp (fly fishing is also an option). The action on this guided fishing trip was almost non stop and they fished from the drift boat for the most part but also stopped on the shore to fish from the bank in some of the popular holes.
