Spring Chinook Salmon Fising in the Okanogan
Spring Chinook! The start of the salmon season is finally here! Fishing the month of June on the Icicle river out of Leavenworth. This is a drift boat trip down a small scenic river where we will be anchoring above wholes in the river and plunking herring and eggs. These salmon on the Icicle river are the best fighting pound for pound you'll find. A ten pound fish will fight like a thirty in the Columbia. Great fun! You will see a lot of abundant wildlife from ducklings to young newborn deer. This is a trip you'll truly appreciate. Call early, trips go fast!
Rates: $185 per person. Min 2 with max of 2.
Summer Chinook & Sockey Salmon Fising in the Okanogan
This is probley the most relaxing salmon fishing that you can find. Don't need to hassle the current or deal with big waves. We fish the Brewster pool and Wells Dam area. Here we will be fishing for Summer Chinook and Sockeye salmon. Enjoy fishing out of a 21 ft Duckworth with 4 leather swivel seats. Very comfortable for your group of fisherman.
In the past years we have been very fortunate to have great returns and generous limits. Last season we were allowed 6 sockeye and 3 chinook. We had many 30 plus fish days. Please look at the quality of the meat on these fish. They are conditioned to come this far and shock many people on the brightness.
We look forward to seeing you on the water!

Here are some exciting times. We put the Downriggers away and break out the bobber rods! We will be fishing the Columbia River out of Paterous and Bridgeport area. Casting and drifting with your bobber down stretches of rip rap and current breaks waiting for that to disappear, and the steelhead come flying out of the water! Can it get any better this time of year....
Come mid February through March, we will be floating the Okanogan river also drifting bobbers and pulling plugs. During this part of the year it is nice and quiet to enjoy a great float. Fishing out of Omak and Okanogan.

Guided Fishing Rates for Small Mouth Bass
All the coyote hunting is over for the winter and the turkey are gobbling. Warm weather brings on warmer water temps and fish are in there pre-spawn to spawning modes. We will be using crankbaits and dropshot techniques on targeted areas they like to hang out during the end of April and first part of May. Come later in the month, we will be sight fishing the beautiful bronze backs. The water is really clear in the surrounding lakes of the Okanogan valley were catching a six pound small mouth shouldn't be a problem. Catching a lot of fish in the three to four pound range and few five to six pound range.. On a good day, we might even get one in that's seven pounds.
Here in the Okanogan valley, it is really a hidden secret when it comes to trophy smallmouth. I have been a more then avid angler in this valley for more then 15 years. Doing the local bass tournaments and knowing where these fish should be during different parts of the year.
We will be fishing out of my 21 foot Duckworth. This boat is a open boat sled equipped with an 80lb I pilot from Minn Kota, live wells and a 200 hp jet pump to take us into any shallow area the fish might rome.
On these trips we do not keep any bass at all. We strive for catch and release at all times. If you would like to have one mounted for yourself. We will take measurements and many pictures so your Taxidurmist can make a replica.
All top of the line fishing rods and reels.
A sack lunch and drinks.

Guided Fishing Rates for Kokanee
We fish for these Kokanee in Lake Chelan and Palmer Lake. Methods of fishing depend on time of year and water clarity. On my boat I have four cannon downrigger that we use to put at desired depths ranging from 50 to 120 feet.
This is an action packed trip, meaning that you are going to get a lot of bites and loose plenty of fish.. Kokanee have soft mouths and stinger hooks are a must in this situation. A great trip to take your first time fisherman to your season veteran... Kids love fishing for the non-stop action and the comfort of the boat go hand and hand. Limits are 10 fish per person with some lakes 5 per person.
Fishing out of a 21 ft Duckworth with four leather swivel seats. Please bring a small cooler with whatever you want to eat or drink during your trip. Cameras are always welcome to capture the moment! Fish will be cleaned at the end of the day so bring a larger cooler to leave in your rig.
