Since 1989, master fishing guide Eli Rico has spent more than 250 days of the year traveling through various states to ensure his clients have the best opportunity to hook their desired catch. This full-time captain is so dedicated to the hunt that he fully customizes each charter based on the client's needs.

In Washington, he specializes in salmon, steelhead, trout, and sturgeon charters, leading fellow anglers along the river and lake systems as well as out onto Puget Sound and the Olympic Peninsula and cleaning their catches before they bring them home.
