No (KNOW) Hidden Costs

They told me the trip was a thousand bucks. I was handed a bill for twelve hundred. And that didn’t include the tip. What? Where did the extra come from?

It was hidden costs. Added fees. Charges for additional equipment. All ways to squeeze more money out of someone who has never used a guide service before.

They might charge you extra for waders and boots. You might end up paying for lures or equipment rental. They might try to stick you for parking or the ferry costs.

Know exactly what you are paying by asking, “What is the final bottom line?”

Every state or region has their own customs as to what is included in the price of a guided trip. I include everything in the cost of a trip. Waders, tackle and flies, flotation devices, rods and reels, everything but your fishing license, food and drink and rain gear. We even fillet your fish. But this is not always the case with everyone.

So, be sure to ask, “What is the actual total cost?” And, don’t feel embarrassed to ask more than once. It is your right to know how much you will need to budget and ensure there are no surprises.

We came ready to salmon fish. Focused only on salmon. Caleb gave us a straightforward assessment of the river from his morning trip. Talked us into fishing from the boat for both trout and salmon. Had a great four hour float. Caught over a dozen fish and even took some salmon home. Time of year and river conditions determined our day and Caleb maximized our time. Look forward to a full day trip earlier in the season next time.

Caleb was an amazing guide! He was very knowledgeable on where to get us on some trout! He was very helpful to me because I don’t fish very often. We hope to come back next year and plan to book another trip with them! Thanks so much for the top notch service!

Jason and his crew were fantastic! They took us to the perfect spot for our group of 14 to quickly catch our limit of Sockeye Salmon. When the weather changed our original plan, he quickly made alternate arrangements and we had a great time. I would definitely use him again!

Caleb had us on the Trout even when they were a little hard to find! Always handy with a new lure or spot to try when things ran cold and we were right back on em. Great guide, great fishing. Don’t hesitate to book. Thanks so much!

Caleb was a great guide! Jason was very good with communicating with our group before the trip. Had a good half day trout/char fishing!
