Derek Peterson is a full time guide on the Owhyee River and head of the Advanced Fly Fishing Program for Northwest School of Fly Fishing. Born and raised in Boise, Derek has more than 20 years’ experience fishing in Southwest Idaho and Oregon on rivers like the South Fork, Bigwood and Silver Creek as well as the Owyhee. He enjoys backcountry fishing in the high mountain lakes and streams as well as steelhead and salmon fishing.
An exceptional streamer and nymph fisherman, Derek is passionate about fishing and enjoys teaching others and helping them to catch more fish, whether it is one of his daughters or someone he just met on the river. Always looking to improve his skills, Derek enjoys meeting other fisherman, sharing river knowledge, techniques and tips. “It is just as exciting to hook a fish myself as it is to hand a fellow fisherman a new fly and watch him hook a big one.”
