With over 30 years experience fishing North Idaho, Lake Charters Guide Service offers a fun, professional, and quality trip. Included in your trip are clean, comfortable boats, quality fishing rods and reels, all tackle and bait. Don Houk is a licensed, bonded and insured Idaho Outfitter and has his US Coast Guard Captains license. Wife, Susan Houk also holds a US Coast Guard Captains license and Idaho Guides license.

Once you book a trip it is easy access to the boat. A short drive will take you directly to the boat or we can pick you up at a designated pick up spot on the lake itself. Your rental cabin or home on the lake or one of the lake resorts.
Boats: Fish or cruise in comfort aboard our 28' Contessa Bayliner and a 22' Custom Weld boat. Both are set up with Canon downriggers for trolling and top of the line fishing gear. The Custom Weld is also set up to do the bass and pike fishing. Both boats are very comfortable to fish from.
We even have our own line of bucktail streamer flies and products we designed back in the early 80's that we use to target the rainbows and salmon. Named "Frisky Jenny Flies" after Dons mom, Virginia. She created a few flies to fish in the local salmon derby and won the derby. Many award winning fish have been caught since then on these beautiful flies. To see our line of tackle and products available check out our web site. These products are sold around the great northwest area including our Post Falls, Idaho and Reno, Nevada Cabelas store!
Pricing: Our charters run $440 for the boat for a half day fishing (5 hrs) and $675 for a full day (9hrs). This price is good for 1 to 4 passengers. Add $80 per person for any additional passengers. Maximum of 6 passengers per boat. Kids fish free when accompanied by an adult.
We provide everything but your lunch and license. A one day fishing license runs $12.75 -- add additional days for $5 more per day. A license must be purchased prior to the fishing trip at a licensed vendor or you can go online and purchase it through www.fishandgame.idaho.gov web site.
We accept most major credit cards-Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. You can also pay with cash or check.
Fishing on Coeur d'Alene lake can be the thrill of a lifetime. Cast for both large or small mouth bass, or the great northern pike which can get to over 30 pounds, or troll for the chinook salmon averaging 2 to 10 pounds but can exceed 20 pounds! Our kokanee salmon usually run from 9 to 15 inches but still add a challenge when using lighter gear and add a great excitement for the kids on the trip.
Coeur d'Alene lake is one of the worlds most beautiful lakes. It is over 25 miles long with over 135 miles of shoreline and its deepest point is around 200 feet. Several resorts dot its shoreline along with gorgeous homes and beautiful scenery. If its fishing or just relaxing you're after, you can have both! Whether you're the avid fisherman or a novice you will enjoy this trip. Let's Go Fishing!
