Welcome to Pend Oreille Charters!

We want to welcome you to our community! We will be reserving our blog to bring you more information about specials and interesting topics related to the lake and our many fishing adventures.

Check back often or before you plan your next trip and see if there are any new deals or events happening that may interest you!

Captain Clay Update

On August 7th after his charter, Clay Williams (multi-species/bass guide) was in an accident and broke his back. He had to crawl from an embankment just to be seen. Luckily he was seen by another motorist who waited with him until EMS arrived. He has since undergone surgery with a T10-L3 spinal fusion. Luckily Clay is not paralyzed. He was very lucky… Clay is in a lot of pain but has begun walking.

We would like to wish him the best on his road to recovery and if anybody would like to send him well wish or support in his medical expenses please visit https://www.gofundme.com/f/clay-williams-recovery-costs to help him and his family through this tough time.

In the meantime we have other solutions and captains available while we wait for Clay to return. If you’re a bass purist that is looking for a bass specific adventure with Clay again in the future please check in with us in a couple of months!

Thank you for your support!

Website Feature Update

We wanted to take a little bit of time to make some choice updates. I have more planned but I think the few things that we’ve added will make people’s lives a little easier and make our services a little more transparent.

  • New rate schedule page has been added to allow customers to better plan their travels without waiting for a pesky call back. We will still need to make verbal contact to complete a booking but at least you’ll come to the table with a solid understanding of our pricing and what we offer right from the start.
  • We’ve added a link to purchase fishing licenses through the state of Idaho in a couple places on the site. We hope that this helps everybody be prepared for the journey! Find it on our contact page in a convenient location or inline on the services page. I’ll even throw one in right here to make it that much easier!
  • A vessels page to allow you take a closer look at the amenities that our boats give you when you’re out on the water for all those hours! We are very proud of the expansion and changes that our fleet has undergone with your comfort and experience in mind and we think you will be too.
  • The site has been updated to better reflect our services, captains, and vessels as well.

That’s it for now — More to come!

New Rate Structure!

Say goodbye to the stringent half day and full day schedules!

We’ve added a new rate structures page to save you time while planning your excursions. With this we had to really dive into what would work best for customers and allow us some flexibility that you may have expected by speaking with us directly first. Our first step to doing this was to eliminate the idea of half days and full days.

Do you have a long night planned the night before and don’t want to start at 7:30 in the morning but you want more than 5 hours but not to be locked into a longer 9 hour trip? Are we having a hard morning fishing but you want to give it your all and go 2 or 3 more hours? Maybe we’re having a great day and want to take it to the max and do 9 hours! Maybe a full day is out of budget but 5 hours isn’t quite enough to put in the time you want on a derby? This is no longer a problem. We allow you to build your own experience and set your own budget.

If you have an issue making our pricing work for you please just give us a call at 208-274-3263 and we can work things out and usually get people out fishing in a way that works for everybody!

Don’t be afraid to ask about our discounts! A few common discounts we love to provide are veteran discounts and half off on underage fisherman! We want to get our youth interested in fishing, right?! As well as various other promotions and flexible winter rates.
