About Our Fishing Guides and Staff

Momentum River Expeditions is known for having some of the best guides anywhere and amazing customer service and it continues with our fishing trips. There are 100+ years of combined fishing history between our Guides and the Fly Water Travel team. Many of our guides have learned from Irv Urie – A fishing guide for 50 years and one of the original fishing guides on the Rogue River. Most importantly our guides are guides in the truest sense of the word - Not only are they talented anglers, they also truly enjoy sharing the outdoors and their outdoor experiences with others. Whether you’re a complete first-timer or someone who has fished around the world, you will be treated with respect and kindness.



Anthony Burgstahler

Anthony has been guiding for over 20 years and has guided throughout the western United States as well as in Nepal and Chile. He is a gifted oarsman with a calm quite demeanor that has made him a favorite with our guests. Anthony manages our Rogue fishing operation and is on almost every trip.

Irv Urie

Irv Urie has been guiding the Rogue River for over 50 years. He is a wonderful teacher, an amazing story teller, and knows the river and it’s fishing as well as anyone alive. If a book were written about the history of fishing on the Rogue there would have to be a section about Irv. He owned and founded River Trips Unlimited until retiring from company ownership last year. We are honored that he has stayed on and continued to guide trips for us.

Darrell Hanks

Darrell is originally from Texas and has been guiding for over 20 years, including wilderness fishing trips down the Middle Fork of the Salmon and the Rogue. Steelhead fishing and Spey casting are passions and he loves sharing his knowledge and giving people casting tips. When not guiding or fishing Darrell makes and restores bow's for violins and fiddles. Sometimes, if we are lucky, he will bring his fiddle down the river and play a few tunes. Darrell guides our wilderness fly fishing trip and we are extremely lucky to have him!

Charles Gehr

Charles works for Fly Water Travel and specializes in the trout and steelhead fisheries of the Pacific Northwest, the Rockies, and British Columbia. A passionate and experienced angler, he has spent the past five years as a full-time trout and steelhead guide on Oregon’s Deschutes River. Charles is an excellent fly tier, an extremely gifted spey caster and the best-informed member of their staff on spey tackle and techniques.
