Dreams Come True – Drift Boat

Do you find yourself daydreaming about fishing while surrounded by spectacular nature and helped by a seasoned guide? Dreams Come True is here and the name fits!

Captain Rick Pecci can’t wait for you to join him on board his 18’ drift boat, manufactured by Fish-Rite. It’s a custom-built boat, perfect for navigating the world-famous Salmon River and its tributaries. His boat features 3 heaters and a gas grill for your comfort. Please note that whether you’ll use the boat or not depends on the water level in the river. The captain will keep you updated but you’ll be wade fishing either way as it’s the best method of catching fish in these waters.

You’ll go after the A-listers of New York freshwater fishing: King Salmon, Brown and Rainbow Trout. Capt. Rick knows this area like the back of his hand and he’ll take you wading all over it. Ever wanted to try some exciting night-time freshwater action? Trophy-sized Walleye lurk in the darkness and Capt. Rick is eager for you to join him in going after them. King Salmon fishing is a real treat when done after sundown.

Capt. Rick has been guiding for the last 38 years and fishing for more than 4 decades. He’ll provide you with high-quality Okuma and St. Croix equipment so you have the best shot at landing your new personal best.

Anglers of all skill levels are welcome to join Dreams Come True on a fishing trip. Whether you’re a total novice or a veteran of fresh waters, Capt. Rick knows just how to get the best angler out you.

Kids aged 13 and above are more than welcome to come along, life jackets in all sizes are provided. You can take your car to the meeting location, there’s free parking available.

If you want to enjoy a unique fishing experience and make memories you’ll fondly retell for years to come, book a trip with Dreams Come True today!
