We are now booking days for the 2021 season. Because of the high demand for guides during the fishing season, we suggest that you book your trip well in advance to secure your dates.
The earlier you call the better the chance you will get your desired dates as the calendar fills up fast! 50% of the trip price is due on date of booking. The balance is due 30 days before the start of your trip. All payments are refundable up to 30 days from the start of the trip. Inside of 30 days there is no refund for cancellations.
We strongly recommend purchasing trip cancellation insurance. This is offered through 3rd party insurers. We recommend contacting the Travel Guard Insurance company for residents of Canada or U.S. They offer trip cancellation insurance at very reasonable rates. It is inexpensive insurance to guarantee your trip costs will be refunded if you have to cancel.
We accept VISA and Mastercard.
As the season unfolds the available days for fishing change. Therefore, we recommend keeping in touch with us via 1-800-667-2311 or email to confirm the availability of the specific dates you are interested in.
