Zach was very personable and a very good guide. I fought several large salmon. We only got one in the boat but we had dozens of opportunities. I am going again.

The day was great. Good equipment, personable friendly captain who has great knowledge of the area and fishing. We caught a good amount of fish and had a great time. I got this for Father’s Day as a gift and it was memorable and would absolutely recommend.

This fishing trip was very fun, Zach was very patient with me in the beginning because this was my first time fishing with this kind of setup and I wasn’t making ideal casts, but eventually I got the hang of it. I liked fishing with Zach because he is knowledgeable and ...Read More explains to you what you need to do clearly, was fun to talk to, and he also tries his best to make you feel comfortable. I caught enough steelheads to make my arm sore for 2 days thanks to him so I highly recommend this charter! Thanks Zach!
