Chuck's Outdoor Adventures – 17'

If you want to get back to nature and experience Pacific Northwest fishing at its finest, come join Chuck’s Outdoor Adventures for a drift fishing adventure! Cruise along some of Elma’s finest rivers and waterways for the chance to hook some world-famous Salmon and Steelhead. At the helm of your charter is Captain Chuck Wicken, known locally as “Washington’s Premier Fishing Guide.” Who better to guide you along these waters?

Capt. Chuck has been fishing for over 25 years, and prides himself on amassing a wealth of local knowledge and experience. He knows exactly where the fish are in Elma, and when they’ll be there! Experienced anglers will appreciate his local know-how and tips and tricks, and newbies will have the chance to learn how to drift fish from an angling aficionado. Capt. Chuck welcomes guests age 10 and above, so bring along the kids and give them an education in some incredible fishing!

You’ll be drifting to the freshwater hotspots on board your captain’s 17’ Thor-Built jet boat, with room for up to 3 anglers to all fish at the same time. She’s built for these waterways and is capable of traveling at seriously slow speeds so that you won’t spook your catch! There’s Chinook, Coho, and Pink Salmon on the menu, as well as Steelhead, and you’ll have the chance to use light tackle to battle these feisty fish.

Capt. Chuck will make sure you’re equipped with top-notch rods and reels, as well as tackle and lures. After you’ve hooked your fish, you’ll be rewarded with his expert catch cleaning and filleting service.

All you need to do is grab a fishing license before your trip. Capt. Chuck recommends bringing along rain gear – as he says himself, this is Washinton, after all. Come aboard Chuck’s Outdoor Adventures and join Washington’s premier fishing guide for an adventure you won’t forget!
