Capt. Alex specializes in fly fishing and spinning on light tackle. He provides top-quality Penn rods and reels, including fly fishing equipment for up to 2 people. Just be sure to let him know in advance if you’d like to give fly fishing a try. Your fishing license is also included, so just arrive 10 minutes before the departure time, and you’re all set.

Be sure to pack some sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses, and feel free to bring snacks and drinks as well. Everything else is covered, including catch cleaning and filleting services. Just come ready to have a great time and let Salt Creek Fishing Charters put you on the fish of your dreams!
