Indigenous Adventures is owned and operated by Cooper Hedgecock. Cooper started his fishing career in 1997 at the Baranof Wilderness lodge in Alaska at age 12. He began as a deckhand and eventually got his captain's license at age 18. Since then, he started running guided trips, making 2023 his 26th year in this field of service. Southwestern Oregon's river systems have so much to offer, he decided to start Indigenous Adventures in 2013. Cooper enjoys sharing Oregon's beautiful rivers and his knowledge of the wide variety of fishing techniques with all of his guests.
