The boat guide was amazing traveling through the shallow river and navigating up steam without hesitation. Pleasant guy with a neat dog. He even turned around when a bear was spotted to catch a second glimpse. Quick and efficient boat. No complaints.

Hi, We will be fishing for Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden and Grayling at that time as it will be too early for salmon fishing in our area. We practice "catch and release" for these fish. It is a good time for targeting these... More
