Welcome To The 2015 Fishing Season at
Dick's Fishing Charters at Shaver Lake, CA


This past season was a very busy and productive year. Most folks fishing with me went home with limits. I expect another quality season in 2015. Rainbow trout and Kokanee salmon will again be our favorite targets with an occasional trophy sized rainbow or a nice brown trout in the mix.

New for 2015 is FREE entrance to Edison Camp and parking for non campers at Edison Camp and Shaver Marina. Just tell the folks at the gate you are fishing with Dick. This applies to morning fishing trips. And the angler who catches the largest fish on each trip will get a Dick's Fishing Charters t-shirt.

Hundreds 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.

It is highly recommended that you make reservations in advance of your trip to Shaver Lake. We will be closed August 17 to 21 while Dick fishes in Alaska.

Dick was on the lake almost every day this past season and itís important for you to arrange for a trip through his Reservation Center at Shaver Lake Sports. Just call (559) 841-2740 to make your request. Master Card and Visa are accepted.

Dick and his wife, Diane, have been together for almost 50 years. They have owned and operated Dickís Fishing Charters for many years. All fishing trips are under Dickís personal guidance. He motivation is to insure that his guests have a great trip.

Dick is a veteran DF&W licensed guide. His license number is 11364. He is bonded and insured. You will be fishing from his 22í Bayliner boat. It is very comfortable and safe. It is equipped with the finest fishing equipment including down riggers, customer made Terry Walton rods and Garcia reels.

Pictures are taken of guests and their catch after each trip. The pictures are posted on this website. Dick looks forward to your picture being included during the 2015 season!

Thanks Dick!

I saw the pictures in your album and the kids will not stop talking about it.  It is going to be our family tradition to do this every year.   Thanks again for a nice fishing trip that was so family orientated and made us feel welcome.
