Five Star Charters
Fishing in a COVID-19 World


Five Star Charters Response to COVID-19

Five Star Charters is Open for Business and operating daily for:

  • ocean charters
  • bay trolling
  • river trips.

In response to COVID-19, we are following guidelines and procedures recommended by government agencies. 

What passengers can expect from staff and what we expect of passengers.

We will be following social distancing guidelines.  Ocean Charters have room enough to allow a 6' distance, with the exception of inside the cabins.  As a result, passengers will be excluded from overcrowding in that part of the boat and must be able and willing to be outside on the deck at the proper distance for the duration of the trip. Passengers must also be aware of this spacing while checking in at the office prior to the trip. Loading and unloading at the dock and waiting for the fish to be cleaned.

Reservations made prior to May 15, 2020 will be given consideration for changes as a result of these new operating procedures. Bookings and reservations made after May 15, 2020 will be subject to the standard 30 day cancellation policy to receive any refund and/or not be responsible for any balance due for  reservations.

The Lottis Family and Five Star Charters would like to thank all of our past customers over these years, and new ones too, for fishing with us.  We trust that you will find these new procedures - put in place for your health and safety and that of our staff - to be acceptable and that you will continue to fish with us. We look forward to lots of good fishing this season and hope to see you in Gold Beach.

Bay Trolling and River Trips are on smaller boats with fewer people, but the same social distancing guidelines apply.

Five Star Charters encourages the use of facemasks.  Staff will wear masks as long as it does not compromise the safety of the vessel or passengers - i.e. while underway and on the water.


  • To meet outdoors for check-in, orientation, and fish cleaning.
  • To remain on deck (not in the cabin) for the entire ocean charter.
  • To share the dynamics of your group with us - household members, family members, separate individuals - so we can properly plan for social distancing on the boats.
  • To bring your own food, water, masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, wipes etc.
  • To tell us about your health on the day of your trip.
  • To pack in and out all of your own items.
  • To purchase your ODFW license in advance of your trip.
  • To provide a touch-free payment method.
  • To provide contact information for each member of your party if future contact tracing is needed.
  • To STAY HOME if you or any members of your party are sick or have an elevated temperature.

As always, the boat captains' have final authority
over boat operations, and passenger and staff safety.
