    Chris did a great job rescheduling and made the trip fun. We all had a great time and we will enjoy grilling the trout and salmon tonight and talk about the fishing. Thank you!!!

  • ★★★★★
    Absolutely fantastic trip with Shane. He explained everything we needed to know and set expectations before the trip and was easy to find when we got there. Super knowledgable, patient, and fun, his boat was clean and he was extremely efficient. Learned a lot, got on some major trout and salmon action, and had a blast. Looking forward to the next time we can get out there with him!
