WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?

Light snacks, sunscreen, and adequate clothing to prepare for weather conditions.  Bottled water is provided onboard, if you prefer other refreshments they may be brought onboard and stored in our ice chest in limited quantities.  Beer in moderation is allowed except when minors are present in the client group.

WHAT KIND OF FISHING WILL WE BE DOING?

Trolling, bottom-bouncing, jigging, casting, and in some cases drift fishing or still fishing.  Both casting and spinning rod/reel combos are available depending on preference and activity. Target species are trout (cutthroat, rainbow, brown), kokanee salmon, and walleye.  All gear and tackle are provided for these activities.

DO YOU PROVIDE LIFE JACKETS?

Yes, we provide USCG approved life jackets that will fit children approximately 30 lbs in weight to adults with chest sizes up to 65".  For those that are 16 years and over and at least 80 lbs we have the option of Onyx A/M-24 All Clear inflatable life jackets.  These CO2 charged Type 5 low profile PFD's have Type 3 performance allowing for maximum comfort and movement while fishing.  Designed to automatically inflate if immersed in water, they are backed up with a manual pull cord as well as backup oral inflation tube.  IMPORTANT: PER STATE LAW CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13 MUST WEAR A LIFE JACKET WHENEVER THE BOAT IS UNDERWAY.
