Guide Service


The Northwests Finest Fishing

Fins & Feathers Guide Service has long been known as the premier guide service on Coeur d’Alene lake. Now we have expanded to two more of the Northwests premier lakes Pend Oreille Lake and Priest Lake. We are also offering Salmon trips on the Columbia river. Having some of the best guides in the area, top of the line gear, and fishing machines that are second to none makes Fins & Feathers your top choice. All of these factors combine in a guided fishing experience that will be remembered for years to come.
