Welcome to Almanor Fishing Adventures !


As The proud owner/operator of Waypoint Charters and member of the local community, I am mostly about fishing. I enjoy a little barbecue, some fine bourbon, and an occasional duck hunt with my friendly Labrador and first mate Olive.

After the Camp fire of 2018, I chose to move beautiful Lake Almanor to live out the last third of my life as a fishing guide.  I'd always enjoyed the local area with its abundant deer population, relaxed friendly people, a beautiful lake abundant with fish.  As a kid in my Volkswagon baja bug, and then Chevy Luv, then Toyota pickup, I would regularly "bust" up the hill to Chester for an A&W cheeseburger.  After a day of fishing, or a weekend at Last Chance campground I'd almost always grab a Pine Shack frosty cone for the drive home.  Youth offers the greatest of times.

My 23' Boulton Voyager is a boat like no other on these waters. And it's comfortable too!  In addition to its solid welded cabin, comfortable bench seating custom built to be truly long enough to accommodate a nap here and there, it also comes with a flushable, permanently installed onboard toilet.  It's truly one of a kind, and custom built by the good people of Boulton Powerboats specifically for your comfort here on Lake Almanor.

We fish light tackle. I believe in quality equipment and putting as little "gear" between you and your fish as possible.  We encourage catch and release and you will never feel pressured to kill your catch and get off the water.

Feel free to ask questions.  I'm always ready to share and teach my fishing expertise.

Escape the valley heat and enjoy a good day fishing or just enjoy the view of beautiful Mount Lassen.
