Captain Rich is both a knowledgeable and an enjoyable companion. Our day on the Upper Potomac, despite adverse wind water conditions, was a success. I recommend him and look forward to a future trip with him for shad on the Occuquan,

Booked Capt. Rich and Osprey Fishing as a birthday present for my daughter and me. We’re both inexperienced anglers and I wanted her to be able to pull in some fish. Man Capt. Rich was able to put us right on top of the fish and within minutes of our first cast my daughter was reeling in her first fish, and second and third etc. The trip far exceeded my expectations and my daughter has not stopped talking about it. We will be booking again with Capt. Rich and Osprey Fishing.

I've been on a lot of private and party fishing trips and Captain Rich was by far the best out there. If you want an experience to learn how to fish, where to fish, how everything works, and how to use it this is the trip for you. He was super knowledgeable, friendly, and determined for us to catch more and more fish. We did catch and release but we must have pulled up 15 or so fish yesterday, 3 types of Catfish, Snakehead, Perch, and LM Bass. Thanks for a great day out!

Rich loves to fish as much as you. We caught 84 fish and didn't have (or want) to eat. We broke his previous record day of 71 fish. His equipment was in top-notch condition and his expertise first class. I've never experienced catching so many game size fish one after another all day long. Many boats and shoreline fisherman near us were wondering what the heck we had. The only difference was Rich. Sign up if you want a great fishing experience.

I booked the half day charter for my husband's birthday present. We have small children and he can't go fishing as much as he would like to. My husband took our older son and they had a blast! They both had huge smiles on their faces when they got home and said they had a great time. Thank you Captain Johnson! We will keep you in mind for future charters.

Went out to explore smallmouth bass fishing with Captain Rich. I had a fantastic time and can’t wait to go out again. I may even try to squeeze another trip in before Thanksgiving.

A really great experience. I have been a fisherman for a long time but didn't realize how much I didn't know. Rich was extremely helpful and did his level best to put fish in the boat. I would definitely recommend fishing with him. Regardless of your skill level or experience, I can guarantee you will learn something new and have an enjoyable time.

Great communication before, during, and back at the marina. Fully equipped with the local knowledge, rod ‘n reels, and countless techniques to get fish in the boat. Largemouth, Rockbass, and Striper were on the agenda and Captain Rich selected spots that produced all these for me and my wife. It was a pleasurable summer day out on the water, and will definitely rebook to share it with Captain Rich. “Remember fish do not have eyelids, that gives your lure a better chance.”

We went small mouth bass fishing with Capt Rich and had a blast! He’s a great instructor and very knowledgeable. We caught at least 7 or 8 fish and the day was awesome.

My teenage grandson and I fished on the Potomac out of Occoquan, VA., with Captain Rich. We had a fun day catching 25 catfish. Everything is very professional. He taught us several fishing techniques which we did not know. Overall, we had a great day and looking forward to our next trip. Thank you Captain Rich.

Captain Rich Johnson is amazing. Great communicator. He is as good at teaching the art of fishing as he is at doing it. We'll be back. And I'll tell all my friends to use him.

Great day of relaxing fishing. Captain Rich was prepared and organized. Communicated well and even provided a location closer to me to launch. Would have gone until sunset but the day was burning me up so I had to throw in the anchor at 3:30p. Captain Rich taught me a lot about rigging, and fish behavior. We had great conversations felt like I was just out with a buddy who knows a lot. I didn’t worry about a thing and caught a few fish. Already planning another trip.

Captain Rich knows where the spots are! I really enjoyed my time with him on the Occoquan River, and we reeled in 7 catfish during a morning charter. Captain Rich is very safe on the water and adhered to the CDC guidelines for Covid-19. Don't hesitate to book your charter and get ready to reel in some fish!

Have had the pleasure of going out on both the Occoquan and Upper Potomac trips that Rich offers. Rich is very knowledgeable and provided all the gear and direction for an amateur like me to have a great day on the river.

It was first ever fishing experience but it went great. Rich made it easy to follow his instructions and we caught a lot more fish then I expected. I would definitely do it again!

I'm an absolute beginner -- city kid through and through -- but figured it'd be worth giving a morning of fishing a shot. It was a lot of fun. We caught a lot of fish. Rich is a patient teacher. I can't recommend it more highly.
