He looks forward to your joining him for a great morning on the lake catching fish and having fun. It is well known in the region that Dick's Fishing Charters, has developed a reputation over the years as being fish catchers.

All guests are treated to a complimentary lunch. Soft drinks and bottled water are always available. You receive free entrance to Camp Edison so you can meet me at the Shaver Lake Marina. Naturally, quality tackle, bait and fish cleaning are also included. Kids are our specialty. "I just love watching a young angler catch their first fish," laughs Dick. He has a history of going out of his way for everyone to insure a great trip. But kids, well, he is a master at getting kids hooked on fishing.

You will be fishing on a 22 foot Bayliner boat, equipped with everything including down riggers. The top and side enclosures make the trip more comfortable for you as weather up here varies throughout the season. Dick's reputation as a fishing guide and charter operator is number one in satisfaction and comfort. See a pictorial on home to cook your catch!

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!
