We had such a wonderful time fishing with our guide Pat, truly a memorable time for our entire group!!! Thank you iFish Alaska for taking such good care of of us!!!!!

8/18/2016 Five stars for this guide service!!! Second time to fish with fish Alaska. By far the finest guided trip I have been on to date!! My daughter and I we totally taken care of while on the trip of a life time. The fishing guide Pat knew exactly where to take us. Even with a slow run of silvers we came home with fish when others on the river did not. Thank you again Pat and ifish Akaska.

Pat was an amazing fishing guide. His knowledge of Alaska was a plus! We had a group of family and friends on this trip. Pat knew just the right fishing spots. We limited out and got to bring some amazing salmon back to New Orleans. Thanks, Pat, for making our trip the best!

There is no better fishing guide in Alaska than Pat Donelson of iFishAlaska. My son and I have made it a yearly event to fish with Pat. Pat knows the rivers, knows the best techniques for fishing them and is an amazing teacher. We have never gotten skunked on a fishing trip with with iFishAlaska, and we have always had a good time. We learn more about Alaska, see more of its beauty and we always learn a few new addition to catching fish. The laughter always seems to be my son's favorite part of the trip (that and the snacks we bring). Whenever I have friends or family coming to Alaska I always recommend iFishAlaska. Without hesitation, I give Pat and his team at iFishAlaska the highest recommendation.
