Mark is a skilled fisherman and his years of experience, along with his knowledge of the lake ensure that you're all but guaranteed to catch at least one fish while on a charter with him, so if you want to land some big trout or Kokanee, he's your guy.

We brought our two young boys with us (age 5 and 7) in the hopes that they would be able to try out fishing, however its not that kind of experience as Marks setup is quite advanced so he does the vast majority of the work. The only time we were involved was when it came time to reel in a fish or put the line out. Some people would love this, but 4 hours was a bit too long for 2 little guys to just sit there waiting for a bite. This is my fault for not having a clearer understanding of what actually takes place on a fishing charter, but now that I know, I wouldn't recommend this outting for families with young kids.

We found this company on TripAdvisor and because of the 5 * reviews we decided to book here our fishing trip.

Mark, our guide, was a very friendly person who explained everything clear.
He brought us to different very good fishing spots where we caught some good sized Lake Trout.
On light tackle a lovely fish to catch

Thanks again Mark for an unforgettable day of fishing

Mark is a fantastic guide. He puts you on the fish, is incredibly knowledgable about the area and knows how to set up his gear to keep catching Laker's, Rainbow's and Kokanee's (the fish not the beer) all day. I'm going again next time I'm in the Shuswap.

Great day on Lake Shuswap! Mark is awesome...not only provided everything we needed, great educator willing to share his knowledge from years of fishing. Got us on the fish in a hurry and kept us there. Thanks for the memorable experience!

Excellent Day on the Beautiful Shuswap!
Mark has an immaculate, well organized boat with high quality equipment.
He is very knowledgeable, sociable and considerate. He made our trip a relaxing, enjoyable experience, all we needed to do was reel them in 😎!
We were impressed that strict conservation protocol was followed - fish are minimally handled and carefully released. Mark is a First Class, dedicated guide!!

What a great day!

Found Shuswap Trout Scout on the web as we were new to fishing on Shuswap Lake. Wanted to get a guide to catch some fish and learn the lake.

The booking process was simple and everything we needed to do and bring was explained up front.

When we go there, Mark met us in the marina parking lot and brought us down to his charter boat, which is a beautiful Regal cruiser outfitted with everything needed for a great day of fishing.

Mark has an incredible knowledge of the area having grown up and fished the area for over 30 years.

Once out on the lake, we limited out for our lake trout and rainbow trout in the first 15 minutes! A great size laker and a perfect eating rainbow.

Spent the rest of the time learning the water, experimenting with a few different things that produced and between laughing and sharing stories, enjoying the hospitality provided we continued catching and learning from Mark.

Mark has a great way of explaining his craft and for those interested can get involved in the process.

The boat is amazing with a lounging deck for comfortable sitting or fighting and a bottom swim platform that Mark lands and deals with the fish.

I highly recommend Mark and Shuswap Trout Scout for beginners and experience fisherman alike. My wife and I had a great day!
