Mario was fortunate enough to have a great year-round fishery on the Klamath River in his backyard. After catching his first steelhead on a guided fishing trip he knew that being a fishing guide was something he would pursue. 15 years into a career of fighting wildland fires for the US Forest Service, Mario chose to follow that dream and bought a custom Willie drift boat and started guiding and exploring the world of Salmon, Trout, and Steelhead fishing on the Klamath, Umpqua, Rogue, and Chetco rivers.
IGS has evolved from just a fishing company and is now offering Rafting Trips on the Famous Klamath River. Ironhead Guide Service (IGS) is a guide owned and operated company now offering whitewater rafting adventures on the beautiful Klamath River. IGS is the only local Outfitter on the Klamath River, with born and raised Klamath River Guides operating the wilderness like excursions. When you book a rafting adventure with IGS you will spend time with true local experts of the Klamath River and its rich cultural history. IGS offers 1 day rafting adventures to allow for vacation flexibility and not lock folks in for multiple days. The Klamath River Rafting Trips include a shore lunch prepared by our top rated professional local guides, a full day of rafting awesomeness, and memories that will last a lifetime.
