Meet Our Guides

Colby Borley

My name is Colby Borley, I was born and raised locally on the outskirts of Coeur d Alene in Rathdrum, Idaho. Chasing fish became a quick passion for me ever since I can remember. I have been so blessed to call the northwest my home. Always exploring new country with my son and fiancé has became our family mission. Dad always said “this is your backyard,” taking those words to heart I try to leave no body of water around here untouched. My family and I enjoy throwing small dry flies in the summer for those picky cutthroat, hucking streamers  for big browns and red bands, nymphing that perfect seem, popping top water for big bass or my favorite swinging flies for wild steelhead. Fishing is my passion and I strive to provide the ultimate river experience for my clients. Guiding for Northwest Outfitters has been an amazing experience, and I have a had a blast being part of the team.  Look forward to meeting you on the water!
