Nathan Cornelius, owner of Castaway Guide Sevice, began fishing the Nestucca, Siletz and Tillamook-area rivers as a child growing up on the Oregon Coast. After years of honing his skills, he put his talents to work and began to guide professionally amongst the best of the best in the great Alaskan frontier. He was then recruited by a lodge in the Patagonia region of Chile and, for many years, split his time between guiding summers in Alaska and winters in South America. His passion for the rivers of his youth, however, inspired him to return to home waters and commence his work with Castaway Guide Service in order to share the abundance and natural beauty to be found in the rivers of the Oregon Coast.
Nathan and I chose similar professional paths and opted to guide in both South America and Alaska. I have known Nate for several years and can attest to his ability to provide a great experience for anyone spending a day fishing with him.
