I brought my nephew, who never went fishing and a friend on Sunday,  June 26th. We met Captain Richards at 600 and by 630 we dropped our lines on calm water and a beautiful day. Each of us had plenty of action as we kept Captain Richards busy netting fish and taking care of our rigs. Needless to say, my 12 year old nephew caught the largest trout at 24 inches. We asked the Captain to bring us back to the dock at 100p as each of us caught plenty of fish. I highly recommend this trip!

A great day of fishing. Captain Richard got us on fish right away and the action was consistent. We caught our limits on specs and most all were 20 inches or more, one topping 27. Also picked up one nice bull red. I was apprehensive about the trip due to all of the fresh water from recent storms, but it turned out fantastic. Plan on booking with Captain Richard again.
