Sherill Helfrich

Sherill Helfrich is not a licensed guide, however she has put in a lot of river miles with the Helfrich River Outfitter (HRO) crew. She is the head office person and will most likely be the voice on the other end of the line when you call the Helfrich Outfitters office. Sherill and Kenny have been married 32 years and she is the proud momma of Kelsey. She has also been given the nickname of "den mom" by the crew and loves it!

Sherill grew up in Junction City, Oregon and spent lots of time on the river with her family. Thanks to her Dad, he taught her to fly fish and love the outdoors.

She enjoyed a 31 year career as a Lane County Land Use Planner. Now retired from that life, she finally gets to spend more time as a part of the HRO team in the office along with getting to spend more time on the riverKen & Sherill Helfrich! When she's not on the water or in the office, you can find her gardening or trail riding with her horse Dutch. She is a big Oregon Duck football supporter and attends almost every home game.

Sherill loves being more involved in HRO activities and especially enjoys being able to join Kenny, Kels, clients and crew on the river. It's so fun that many guests have become wonderful friends as well.
Sherill has a lot of river experience and is a great resource if you have questions about any of our trips, or if you want a woman’s perspective about spending time on the river. She is happy to help with any questions or needs you may have with booking a trip or preparing for your upcoming river vacation.

Why Helfrich

When people ask who they entrust their river vacation with, HELFRICH River Outfitters comes up first every time.Not only are we the oldest and most experienced company on the rivers we specialize in, but our safety record has been flawless since the beginning.

In 1925 when Prince Helfrich first started guiding on the McKenzie, he had an edge on other fishing guides because he added value to his trips with extra things like frying the fish his clients caught on the river bank or bringing one of Marjorie Helfrich’s home made pies to share at lunch time. The concept of added value to our trips has continued for 87 years, and is adopted a Helfrich standard.

Now into our fourth generation, our trips continue to improve and evolve.We have and will continue to always make the trips the best that they can be for our clients. The safety and comfort of our clients is our first concern.

The experience of our crew members and their accommodating and friendly attitudes makes our guests know they are in good hands.
