Be prepared for the weather, the Captain is great with instruction if you listen and the fish are biting you will catch fish. I listened learned and had a great experience despite the weather,

To be patient while fishing because every day is definitely different. It may have some periods of waiting for a bite, but the Captain and 1st mate will never stop searching for a great spot.

Yes! No one can guarantee that the weather will cooperate, but the diverse fishery is first class.

The spring is for trout and maybe a stray Salmon here or there if you go to Oswego you will catch a fish. The Fall season is for Salmon both seasons are an incredible time.

Book a drift boat trip and learn the techniques of fishing for those big fish. Also, you get a first hand view of the river.

Do some research on the weather the water temperature. If you are booking this kind of tour make sure you ask your captain questions. They will prepare you.

We had some rough waters. The Capt did say a few trips were cancelled during the week leading up to ours. We still had a great time!

Just come prepared for the weather just in case, but over all you don't need to bring anything for the boat it is all there for you, just bring yourself and food and drink.

Sunscreen, plenty of refreshments to keep hydrated and make sure to take the appropriate measures if you get seasick. Also make sure you get your fishing license before you get onto the boat

The Kings are stocked at this point in the lake greatly improving the catch. Hire a knowledgeable and experienced Captain.

Great fishing lake. Big and clear. Alex, my guide, seemed to "know" where the fish were.

I would reccommend Capt Jim because he cares about teaching you to be a good fisherman and helping to instruct you on how to land the fish, not just on taking you on the water to get paid. Don't just chhose your charter by price, choose it by experienced Capt and read the reviews! We are glad we did!
