Booking, reservations and cancellations:
20% deposit for charters required within 10 days to hold your dates.
Balance due on the day we fish.

Full refund if canceled 30 days prior to fishing dates.
30 days or less – I will refund you deposit if i am able to rebook your date. If I am unable to do so, your deposit can be applied to a future fishing trip with me.
I accept cash and check (preferred) or credit cards – but with credit card payments I will need to add 3% to cover my cost for transaction fees.

Your Catch:
Some people prefer to catch and release; many choose to keep their fish. You will never have finer or fresher Salmon than those we catch. Freshly caught fish are immediately iced and held until we reach the dock. Dockside, we are met by the staff from Cedars Fish processing. You can arrange to have your fish filleted and flash frozen, or filleted and smoked- or a little of both. Cedars will ship your frozen fish via Federal Express to your home. They accept all major credit cards; cost varies based on total catch.

If you are fishing for multiple days and would like to do it yourself, Clover Pass resort has a complete fish cleaning facility. Professional vacuum packer, vacuum bags, fish boxes and freezer space are available for a small fee.
