Guide was disrespectful, confrontive, not very helpful with instructions and got extremely angry and challenging when anyone was struggling to reel fish in. His attitude was the worst we’ve seen and he made the trip extremely unpleasant and stressful for all of us. He said...More

When I spoke with your husband, when he booked the trip, i informed him that there were quite a few fish to catch, however, there might not be much, if any, that were in good shape to keep. As for the mosquitoes, I cannot control...More

Ray was the best. He hooked up us with fish right away, and kept things rolling right from the start. He has been in Alaska fishing for a very long time and it shows. I came up from Oregon with a buddy and we really...More

Had a great time you guys too. Make sure you call us when you come back to Alaska so we can hopefully repeat Monday's fishing.

I quickly noticed that the Salmon run was poor and the places I was familiar with weren't even open to fishing, so I decided to pay for a guide. I figured a local professional would have some insights about where to find a few fish....More

Hi Brandon, Sorry to hear about your trip on Sunday. I know the weather was not cooperating during the trip. That is probably why the river was looking so rough due to high water and floating debris. I wish you had called me after the...More

I've been on 20+ trips with Ray and it's always been great. If you want to find silvers in the Matanuska valley, he's your man. Looking forward to my upcoming trip in August. Stew
