What People Are Saying

My Dad took me Salmon fishing with Captain Chaz when I was a teen. Since then, I have taken friends, family and been taking my son from years. Three generations and decades of good memories. Capt Chas is the Best! The Fall Perch has been especially fun with my son over the years.

“I’ve been fishing with Capt Chas every year, for over 25yrs. The fishing is always great. The trophy fish we catch are even better. But it is the memories created with friends and family over the years which are priceless to me. My fishing trips with Capt Chas have become an annual friend and family tradition, and I spend the majority of every year looking forward to the next trip.”
