Meet our Team

Jim Stahl - Guide/Owner, I was raised on the salmon and steelhead rivers of Puget Sound, helping give me one of the broadest, most diverse fishing schedules in the Pacific Northwest. I have been regarded as one of the best river fishermen in Puget Sound and the Columbia by many.  Dedicating my non-fishing time volunteering to enhance the resources as well as imparting my knowledge; I am a featured speaker at seminars throughout Western Washington and a frequent source for national and regional fishing publications including NW Sportsman Magazine, Outdoor Life, ESPN Outdoors and Salmon, Trout, Steelheader. In addition, I have been a regular guest on all the local radio programs: Northwest Wild Country on Sportsradio 950 KJR Seattle, Outdoor Line on ESPN 710AM, and Northwestern Outdoors Radio which is syndicated all over the entire Northwest region (Washington, Oregon, Idaho and Montana) 

Jennifer Stahl - Booking Coordinator/Owner, I was not much of a fisherman until I married Jim in 1991. Since then, I have been as involved as Jim – and more so sometimes. When I’m not helping Jim with clients or fishing on my own, I am volunteering my time with local chapters of CCA and Ducks Unlimited as well as NSIA and Washington Outdoor Women. I truly believe that education is the key to the preservation of the outdoors.

Since we began our business in 1998, we have guided fishermen and women of all ages and skill levels on the rivers of Washington, including the big water of the lower Columbia River. We pride ourselves in delivering world class customer service ensuring each and every client has the most enjoyable experience possible.

Doug Saint-Denis - Associate Guide, We are excited to have Doug as part of our team. Doug own's Ridge to River Outdoors and together we will bring new and exciting fisheries to both of our clients...

Serving the customer is important to Doug. However, customer service begins before you get to the boat to fish with Doug. All of the equipment Ridge to River Outdoors uses is well maintained and well stocked. Hours of maintenance and preparation go into providing quality fishing experiences throughout the year.
Being properly licensed, insured, and trained is all part of a professional service as well. One of Doug’s most gratifying moments is seeing others enjoy the outdoor experience, whether it be fishing or hunting.

"I have considered Doug an ally for years; he was the prefect fit to our team..." Jim Stahl
