Since 1968, Scott Haugen has been pursuing salmon and steelhead throughout the Pacific Northwest. Today his travels take him to multiple rivers, from Alaska to California, in search of these exciting fish. As a full-time outdoor writer and TV personality, Haugen spends more than 200 days afield each year. The knowledge he has gained through personal experience is what he loves to share, with the hope that more people will be motivated to participate in the outdoor endeavors he so loves. Scott Haugen, his wife, Tiffany, and their two sons, live near Oregon's McKenzie River, one of the authors favorite streams.
