Guide Profile: Dave “Whitey” Evans


I think I started river guiding in ’84 and the addiction was instant. Over the years I have guided most of the northern rivers we run and I seem to be drawn to the Firth and Alsek continuously. Must be the magnetic north. When I am not running rivers, I operate my steelhead fishing lodge on the Bulkley River near Smithers, BC. Winters sometimes find me chasing sharks on a research ship or bone fishing on the flats. Spring is teaching rescue courses. My favourite memories of river trips are always the hikes.
