Hooper Boone Lansburgh
Hooper Boone Lansburgh grew up in the high deserts of Central Oregon. His uncle took him on a trip down the Lower Deschutes when he was twelve and later that spring on a trip to run the North Umpqua. He was hooked instantly and began working on the Rogue River at the age of fifteen swamping trips and cleaning gear after trips in exchange for a tent space outside, and the opportunity to learn to row. The next season was the summer he cut his teeth and began rowing on multi day trips on the Rogue. Since 2008 he was worked on the Rogue, the Owyhee, Clackamas, and Deschutes to name a few, as well as lived in the Caribbean for a winter and accruing over a year total of sea time in the winding fjords and straits of Southeast Alaska and the icy waters of the North Pacific and Bering Sea. When not guiding he enjoys river trips, skiing, hunting, fishing and making music. Now residing in Northwest Montana in the winters to ski, Hooper is very excited to join the team at MFRE for the 2017 season and many years to come.
