About Dwayne D'Andrea (Owner/Guide)
Born and raised in Castlegar, BC, Dwayne landed his first Columbia River trout on spinning gear at age 7, and from that experience, his passion for fishing evolved into fly fishing, and ultimately starting a fly fishing guide service.
Dwayne also started working at the pulp mill in Castlegar at a very young age, where he is currently employed as an Emergency Response Member in the Safety Resources Department, and also a first aid attendant. In addition to that, he periodically works for the BC Ambulance Service as a paramedic. It's this work experience that assures clients that safety is the #1 concern.
Moving forward, Dwayne hopes to retire from the mill in the near future to focus on his hobby that has turned into a thriving business. As of now, he takes time off from the mill during the peak fishing times to service his growing customer base.
