Rustic Rob's Guide Service

If you would like to have the “reel” deal fishing experience then river fishing with Rustic Rob’s Guide Service is the charter for you. Captain Rob will start the trip as your experienced guide and teacher, but end the trip as your lifelong friend.

Capt. Rob wants to make sure you have the best day possible. He is happy to fish until 2 PM or until you reach your limit. Depending on the season, you will target Chinook and Sockeye Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Striped Bass, and Sturgeon.

You and three friends will fish on his recently restored 20’ jet boat. She has a 300 HP Chevy engine and can reach cruising speeds of 28 knots. Paired with Capt. Rob’s extensive knowledge of the area and fishfinder, you’ll have your lines wet and reeling in the fish in no time.

Capt. Rob has gone above and beyond in outfitting his boat with safety equipment, so you won’t need to worry about a thing and can fully enjoy your day. If you would like your trip to focus solely on Salmon there will be a first mate on board too. Rustic Rob’s Guide Service goes that extra mile to make sure you have the best possible fishing trip.

Capt. Rob will make sure that by the end of the trip you are fishing like a pro. He loves to teach novices how to fish and will be with you every step of the way. For the anglers who are already a pro, why not test your skills at fly fishing for Stripers? Equipment for this is provided, but you are welcome to bring your lucky rod if you wish.

All that’s left for you to do is grab your fishing license and any food and drink you would like on the day. For the tasty fish that you’ll keep, Capt. Rob will happily fillet them for you ready for dinner. How you’ll cook them is up to you.

Capt. Rob can’t wait to welcome you aboard, so book now and see him on the water soon!
