You can expect to target the likes of Steelhead, Chinook Salmon, as well as Brown Trout and Coho. From early May thru August is the best time to chase Smallmouth Bass and Northern Pike on the Fly.
Ken will have all the fishing equipment you’ll need ready for you when you come on board, including rods, reels, and tackle. Ken’s happy to clean and fillet your catch at the end of the day, so you’ll get a nice meal out of your trip!
