Strike Guide Service -
Please read below what some of my clients have said about me.
known Ray for about 16 years and we have fished together for most of that
time. I've learned from Ray how to read the waters and to find where the
fish lay. Ray is very good at what he does and a lot of fun to be around.
I've really enjoyed our time on the river. I've caught a lot of big fish
under his guidance. He is very professional and an exceptionally good
guide. Rain or sunshine you can usually have a very good time."
with Ray is a real joy. His attitude is always upbeat and positive. He
is polite and professional, but also knows how to have fun. I felt safe
in the boat with obviously capable hands. He did his homework on the areas
we fished because when I got there he knew just what was working and we
caught fish. I had a wonderful experience and would gladly fish with Ray
again anytime. Thanks for the great time "
have been fishing with Lucky Strike Guide Service several times since
2004 on the Skykomish River and two times on the Humptulips. I have always
caught lots of fish with Ray. My first trip with Ray was my first time
fishing in Washington with my wife and we landed a beautiful Native Steelhead.
I also had a memorable fall trip on the Skykomish River where we hit so
many Humpies that I lost count. Several times we had double take downs
and even a couple of triples!
far the best experiences have been on the Humptulips River. In Ray's nicely
heated warm boat it seems as though we always get into fish at first light.
I have a hard time getting motivated to go down river because it seems
so "hot" where we start at. However, it never fails that we find fish
the whole way down the river. We have caught nice Chinook, Coho and Chum.
This past year with my father-in-law we landed three Coho over 15lbs including
a 25 plus # Chinook we had to put backů.I guess we will have to just keep
known Ray for many years, He is a joy to spend a day with and listen to
all his story's and adventurous fishing trips and going through life.
He was so determined to learn and understand his style of fishing, that
he just kept trying year after year until he mastered what few people
will ever know. One trip down the river with Ray will not only teach you
how to fish with better results but also what's really important in life
and how to enjoy what's been around us all the time."
have taken several trips with Ray and found him to be very organized and
prepared for the trip. All of the trips have been enjoyable, entertaining
and his knowledge of the river and area. What lures to use can't be overstated.
Ray is a very organized and knowledgeable guide. I recommend him to all
my friends or anyone who is looking for a guide who is good at his trade
and customer service."
time I go with Ray I learn something new. His experience on the water
and dedication to catching quality fish is astonishing. His attitude is
always positive and he is always willing to teach me as much as he can.
I have gone several times in his drift boat and it is very comfortable
and he is very accommodating to keep us happy and warm. If you are looking
for a trip that will have a lasting impression, go with Ray!"
"Lucky Strike Guide Service has shown me a new love and respect for
North West river fishing. Weather it is fishing for summer Steelhead,
King's on the Skykomish, Fall Salmon on the Humptulips or Winter Steelhead
on numerous rivers, Ray brings an enjoyable experience. He works very
hard to put fish in the boat and is enthusiastic, but professional at
the same time. I can't wait to set up the next river outing to hook into
another awesome experience."
