Prisoner Rock Charters offers a variety of trips and packages to suit your interests. Due to changes in regulations for the 2017 sport fishing season, our basic trip menu has changed. Salmon will not be available to us, so all the action will be halibut, lingcod, rockfish, and dungeness crab. Call (541)749-0145 for trip details and booking information.
