    Family oriented guided fishing year round on Lake Chelan, Rufus Woods Reservoir and other North Central Washington venues. Our motto is: ?We catch them in comfort?. We provide that comfort by using covered boats that provide shade in the summer and warmth in the winter. We can accommodate multi-boat parties on Lake Chelan. All the fishing related equipment is provided. Darrell & Dad?s Family Guide Service prides itself on the friendly and informative nature of our guides.

    On Lake Chelan we fish for Mackinaw year round by offering half day and full day trips. The state record Mackinaw of 35 pounds 7 ounces was caught in Lake Chelan. Typical fish are 2 to 7 pounds. Landlocked Chinook and Kokanee are occasionally caught. Start times are tailored to accommodate the customers? needs.

    On Rufus Woods Reservoir we fish for Triploid Rainbow trout. We are one of the few Guide Services that are licensed to guide by the Army Corp of Engineers on this Reservoir. The state record Rainbow Trout of 29.6 pounds was caught in Rufus. The average Rainbow is 2 to 6 pounds.

    Seasonal fishing is offered on a variety of other venues including Summer Chinook and Sockeye on the Upper Columbia River, Roses Lake for trout and spiny ray fish, as well as fly fishing on Grimes Lake.

    Darrell & Dad?s Family Guide Service also provides a Row Boat Rental for use on Roses Lake. It is a 14? aluminum row boat supplied with oars, an electric motor and life jackets.
