Great Salmon Fishing!

Affordable!

Compare our prices and you’ll see they very affordable. Plus, since our charters begin just a short drive north of Anchorage, it means our salmon fishing charters are much easier and affordable to get to than other fly out trips or destinations located much further away.

Morning Half Day Trips

The morning trips are by far our most popular salmon charters! Even though it means an early wake up call, it’s well worth it because day in and day out the “bite” tends to be better on our early morning trips.

Afternoon Half Day Trips

If early mornings are not your thing we also offer afternoon trips. These charters are more convenient for those with small children or for folks that have to travel a long way to get here.

Not a trustworthy business! We booked a salmon fishing trip with them for our ourselves and our out-of-town wedding guests. There were 13 guests booked, totaling almost $2,000.

About a week before the trip, they had to cancel due to fish and game closing king salmon fishing on the river we were going to. Bummer, but not their fault and nothing we can do. So they cancelled our trip.

They then asked if they could give us a refund within 30 days since they had to cancel so many trips. We agreed and 30 days came and went. We called many times and kept being told that we would receive the refund soon. Finally, we got an email asking if they could refund our money in chunks over the next few weeks!

Not only are we out $1950, all of our friends and family who fronted the money are out too! I totally get it was a bad year and bad luck with having to cancel that many trips. But that money was not theirs to spend. They went ahead and spent it and now we are the ones that have to pay!

DO NOT BOOK WITH THEM! There are so many fishing charters to choose from, don't go with this one. Unless you don't mind being out a few thousand dollars.

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!
