antonjones1Along with his wife Sandra, guide Anton Jones has owned and operated Darrell & Dad’s Family Guide Service out of the Lake Chelan Valley since 2000. Jones has fished Lake Chelan since 1994 and specializes in deepwater trolling for mackinaw year round, while entertaining groups that frequently include children. The guide service also provides lodging at the Chelan Valley Hideaway and boat transportation to the remote areas along Chelan’s shore.

Meanwhile, Darrell & Dad’s Family Guide Service offers guided fishing trips on Rufus Woods Reservoir for triploid rainbows in the fall and winter and Roses Lake for rainbows in the spring. During certain times a year, he also specializes in Lahontan cutthroats on Grimes Lake and steelhead on the Upper Columbia from October to March. Recently, he’s added Upper Columbia salmon in summer and fall.

Jones regularly performs fishing seminars at the O’Loughlin and Shuyler Sportsman’s Shows, around the Northwest at various sportsman’s groups meetings and on a weekly basis at resorts in the Chelan Valley. His knowledge of the Chelan Valley makes him a frequent guest of Northwestern Outdoors and Wild Country radio. He also does a weekly radio fishing report that is heard throughout the Wenatchee Valley and has been featured on several TV shows, including Hawg Quest, The Fanatical Fisherman, The Fishing Magician and on the Best of the West with Jeff Corwin on the Travel Channel. His weekly report is distributed throughout the region and appears regularly in a variety of weekly publications, including the Seattle Times and Spokane Spokesman Review
