Description: With over 30 years of experience fishing Northern Idaho, Lake Charters Guide Service of Coeur D'Alene 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. His wife, Susan Houk, also holds a US Coast Guard Captains license and Idaho Guides license. Their son Scott, a licensed Captain and guide, also shares his excellent knowledge and skill and helps out with the charters.

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, including your rental cabin or home on the lake or one of the lake resorts.

We provide everything but your lunch and license. A one day fishing license runs $12.75 - add additional days for $6 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 from Idaho fish and game website.

Fishing on Coeur d'Alene lake can be the thrill of a lifetime. Cast for both large and 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.

Spring Fishing At Its Best

by Charon , 05/26/2010

My wife and I flew from Minnesota to fish with the Houke's and Lake Charters. What an experience! Don Houke is a professional who knows the lakes he is fishing, and knows how to provide a good experience for the angler in search of Idaho's big lake species. Don's boat is neat and clean. I was impressed that he gave a safety briefing, which I expect but rarely get when fishing with guides or charters. Don is friendly, conscientious, and pleasant company. We fished using the Frisky Jenny Flies manufactured by the Houke family. They worked very well with a number of fish brought to net including a 17-18 lb rainbow from lake Pend Oreille. We highly recommend Lake Charters if you plan to fish the Coeur D'Alene area.

Lake Charters and Frisky Jenny Flies

by Local Girl Who Likes To Fish , 04/27/2010

Lake Charters is a fantastic outfit. I have taken several trips with the Houke's and have found each trip to be better than the next. I catch something each time I am with them. Our family has a blast each and everytime. The Houke's have first class facilities and know how to treat people and catch fish; Mrs. Houke makes her own flies and sells them at Black Sheep, Cableas, and other area stores; Frisky Jenny Flies - gotta have em. They provide a great time for families, friends, coworkers, etc. If I were to recommend any charter in the North Idaho area, it would definitely be Lake Charters. Try them out, you won't be disappointed!
