Lake and meeting location/time will be discussed when finalizing booking.
Guided half day trips are usually around 4 hours and full day trips can be up to 8 hours or more depending on weather conditions and length of time customer wishes to be on the water.
Which lake you fish at will depend on a variety of factors such as what species you are interested in catching, which lake currently has the best numbers, and weather. If you have your heart set on fishing at a particular lake, Kayakjak can let you know what the fishing conditions would be like on that lake for that time of year.
If you need to reschedule your trip, please let us know as soon as possible so you have a better chance of being able to get an open day. If the weather is going to be bad on the date booked, we usually reschedule to the next open date. If you can’t, we will return your booking fee. If bad weather comes in during your trip, causing the trip to end, Kayakjak will charge for the hours fished and work with you to reschedule to make up for the rest of the time you missed in your trip.

What Should I Expect?
Kayakjak works very hard to provide his clients with an excellent fishing and learning experience, regardless of their skill level. Kayakjak’s trips are family friendly for children and adults of all ages!
Here’s what you can expect from a day on the water:
You’ll fish with artificial lures or various bait depending on the season, what the fish are doing, and what you prefer.
You’ll have a chance to catch a variety of fish.
You’ll get a half or full day on the water, unless you want to call it quits earlier. Kayakjak will make arrangements with you ahead of time for a starting time and meeting place in the morning.
Kayakjak practices catch-and-release to help preserve the fantastic fishing in the reservoirs and lakes he guides on. He keeps a digital camera in his boat to get pictures of his clients, but you are also encouraged to bring your own camera.
