Now Open for 2016 - Pick Your Dates
We have been serving thousands of anglers for nearly a decade and look forward to fishing with you in 2016. Here at Dick's Fishing Charters, we have developed a reputation over the years as being fish catchers. But more than that, we are facilitators of good ole fun for you, your friends and family.
On each trip we always provide a lunch, soft drinks and bottled water. Of course quality tackle, bait and fish cleaning are also included. Kids are our specialty. Dick just loves watching a young angler catch their first fish. He goes out of his way for everyone to insure a great trip, but kids, well, he is a master at getting kids hooked on fishing.
The boat he uses is a 22 foot Bayliner equipped with everything including down riggers. The top and side enclosures make the trip more comfortable for you as weather up here varies throughout the season. Dick's reputation as a fishing guide and charter operator is number one in satisfaction and comfort.
Thousands of fishermen have fished with Dickís Fishing Charters over the past several years. Dickís service to the angling community is well known.
Every trip is a special one. It is designed personally for families, couples and experienced fishermen. Dick aims to please and works very hard to be sure that his guests enjoy their trip.
Many of his fishing clients return season after season and each time they look forward to a great experience on Shaver Lake.
Besides having a tremendous day on Shaver Lake, many clients have had the opportunity to see the local wildlife during their excursion. Eagles, osprey, ducks and an occasional sighting of deer drinking from Shaver Lake are among what you might see.
To many clients, the breath taking beauty of Shaver Lake itself is worth the trip!
But, naturally, its fish that they come for and with Dick, itís fish that they usually get. He is the veteran guide with years of experience on Shaver Lake. He is the one guide that folks have come to count on.
