Darrell & Dad's Family Guide Service
Helping Families Make Memories Since 2000
Darrell and Dad's Family Guide Service is the longest-running, full-time guide service on Lake Chelan, and was established in 2000. Our versatility, customer service, and family orientation are what sets us apart. We fish the lake year round and know that as the seasons' change, so do the locations and presentations for catching fish. This experience allows us to remain in tune with the seasonal changes and put you on the fish.
We would love to be a part of your family's special day and look forward to serving you.
Anton and Sandra Jones- Owners
What We Fish For:
Meet the denizen of the deep - Lake Trout. In Lake Chelan, they average 2-5 pounds and are the ideal eating size fish. The state record fish of 35lb 10oz was caught by Phil Colyar of Wenatchee in 2013. Many Lakers over 10 pounds are caught. Lake Trout can live for many years and continue to grow their entire lives.
The eating-size fish are fantastic table fare. We will clean and chill your catch for you at no additional charge.
Lake Chelan is renowned for it's landlocked Chinook Salmon fishery, as well. If you are fortunate enough to hook one of these fish, you will see one of God's masterpieces.
Widely referred to as, "Silvers", Kokanee makes for amazing table fair and offer an excellent winter and spring fishery.
