This policy reflects the rights of John Elder Fishing Guide Service and applies to all of our fishing trips. Please read below.
John Elder Fishing Guide Service operates year round with a group of professional fishing guides. When scheduling a fishing trip with us, we ask that you please try to avoid rescheduling or canceling your fishing trips as this creates booking and scheduling conflicts with the guide service. Below is our booking and cancellation policy. This policy reflects the rights of John Elder Fishing Guide Service and applies to all of our fishing trips. We understand that unforeseen situations may arise beyond control which sometimes affect travel plans. We believe in a fair approach to cancellations. Our cancellation policy is such that it both protects the livelihoods of our guides in the event that a scheduled guide trip was cancelled, and in some situations it allows deposits from cancelled trips to be used toward future trip bookings.
Only your fishing guide may cancel your guided trip within 24 hours of your scheduled trip date due to weather or mechanical breakdown without forfeiture of trip deposit.
Please call (541) 971-7019 to reschedule your booked trip to let our other clients fish!
Trips changed from full-day to half-day within 48 hours of the trip date, requires a full-day payment. No exceptions. Rain is NOT CONSIDERED dangerous weather.
If the weather on the date of the trip is dangerous, which includes thunder, lightening, dangerous water levels or other life threatening circumstances, you will have the option to book your trip at a later date or your deposit will be refunded in full. If your deposit is non refundable we provide the option to transfer your deposit toward a future date of your choice.
