I was born and raised in Central Illinois, my dad and his friends took me fishing every weekend. Since I can remember, I have been catching fish in Central Illinois from strip pits to the river and all places in between. I am a 21 year veteran of the U.S. Coast Guard where I learned how to operate various sized watercraft retiring in 2019. I obtained my Merchant Mariner Credentials from Explorers Guide LLC and started River Valley Charter Service LLC in 2019. You will get a one on one seminar on the different tips and techniques used on the waters of Central Illinois. You will also get tips on electronics and what I look for on the screen to know where to start fishing. I enjoy talking with all my clients and making lifelong friendships while out on the water!
We offer fully equipped guided fishing trips on the Illinois River and the surrounding areas. We also offer river tours where you can sit back and enjoy a nice time on the water and learn the area and photograph the wonderful scenery including changing fall colors and eagles.
