My stepson, son-in-law and I spend a wonderful morning with Captain Harry.  He was waiting for us on the dock at 6 AM with all the equipment that we needed for the day.  His boat is very fast, so we got to the fishing spots quickly.  All of us had fished before, but are far from being “regulars.”  Harry patiently worked with our techniques and we were quite successful.  We caught 17 trout and lost several more while figuring out how to fully hook them and get them into the boat.  I strongly recommend Captain Harry to anyone wanting a good day on the water!!

What a great day of fishing!!  We ended up with a nice box of solid trout that would be the envy of any angler.  Capt Harry went the extra mile to ensure everyone caught fish and had a great time.  Very highly recommend!!
