Booked Todd for 2 days. Fishing was slow and he offered that we didn't have to honor the 2nd day. We decided to go the 2nd day. Again, not a lot of fish, but it's called fishing and not catching. River and scenery were awesome.

Todd was amazing. He was very helpful and patience since we were novice fishermen. Todd also arranged for a Grizzly Bear to come down to the shore on the side of the river. GREAT TRIP AND I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TODD AND FISHBONE CHARTERS.
