About The Idaho Fisherman

The Idaho Fisherman is a comprehensive resource for fishing, fishing gear, and fishing electronics. “The Idaho Fisherman” website was founded by Rich Lindsey to provide guided fishing trips and charters in the Priest Lake and Lake Pend Oreille. Here is more about Rich Lindsey:

I’m Rich Lindsey your Outfitter/Guide, I have been providing guided fishing trips in the North Idaho, Coeur D Alene, Spokane area for over four decades. As a seasoned full time professional, I have extensive knowledge of Priest, and Lake Pend Oreille, and the fish that inhabit these waters.  The species we target are Rainbow trout, Lake Trout (a.k.a. Mackinaw), Brown Trout, Cutthroat trout, Bull trout, Smallmouth bass, Walleye, Northern pike, and jumbo Yellow perch.  Priest Lake is primarily a year round Lake Trout fishery, providing the most consistent daily catches of any of our lakes.

My fishing charters are not only about catching fish, but also about having fun. They`re a great way to introduce your children to the sport, and are a great way to spend  a day of your vacation in this popular area.  When you fish with me,  all you need to bring is your sense of humor, an Idaho fishing license (anglers 14 yrs. and older) and whatever you would like in the way of refreshments. I provide fish cleaning, and onboard packaging of your catch.  I also have taxidermy services available by Gary Blew of Fish Design Taxidermy.

Our journey began by offering fellow anglers unforgettable experiences on the water, and over the years, we’ve recognized the importance of having the right gear and electronics to complement those experiences.

Our primary mission now is to assist fishermen of all calibers in maximizing the potential of their fishing gear. We aim to bridge the gap between tradition and technology, ensuring that every fishing enthusiast can understand the nuances of a new reel, or select the most efficient fish finder for their expeditions.
