Marty was a great guide. While we caught plenty of rainbow trout we also caught a brown trout! Marty also gave us smoked trout to take home and we took one of the rainbow trout to a local restaurant and had it cooked up! Yum!

I can highly recommend this trip. We booked a 3 hour trip with two kids and had a great time. Caught five nice trouts (yum). The weather was a bit cold but the boat had enough shelter to enjoy the trip. Thanks a lot.

We agree Marty was stunning. Three hours is a good minimum. The boat was clean and well equipped. We felt it was worth paying the 110 dollars per hour for the boat..Martys skill and all the gear. 8 beautiful trout between the two of us....More

Brother in law from the UK was desparate to catch a trout. Thought it best to hire a skipper. Certainly caught the best when we booked Marty. Jaw dropped when he put back the first - clearly big enough to keep. "Too thin!" Nine fat...More
