We had a wonderful 5 hour afternoon trip with Captain Doug. I plan on billing with him again the next time we are in the area. Rain and wind were predicted for the original date we booked, so Captain Doug reached out and made recommendations to schedule for a different date. He was flexible with us and very accommodating. We are a family of beginner fisherwomen and he was patient, kind, and a perfect instructor. I strongly recommend booking with Captain Doug. Captain Experiences website was also easy to use as well.

Captain Doug was amazing. He works hard to put you on fish, is an excellent teacher, and will give everything he has to fill your cooler. We will be back again soon.

I am a 3 peat customer of Captain Doug, he caterers to all levels of fishing experience, he has taught more about fishing than I can mention here! I have had a great time each time I have gone with him and he has put us on fish each time. The last trip was a wade trip and we had our limit of trout in 2 hours and also released several nice fish, so if you are looking for a relaxing fun time and catch fish on top of that I highly recommend Captain Doug!
