June 5, 2018... Yet another Alaska fishing season is underway! With improved marine survival and increased hatchery plants in past years, our first-run Kasilof king salmon fishing looks to be off to a solid start in 2018.


While smaller on average than their July cousins, first-run king salmon like this one caught on May 30 offer anglers what we believe to be the finest eating fish of all n the Kenai Peninsula streams.

We have some scattered openings throughout the rest of June to try your luck and some super specials to make a trip easier on your pocketbook!

For one of our favorite times of the year to fish, we also have some discounts available on remaining dates in our August and September silver salmon fishery too! Peak dates are getting pretty full now for this late summer fishery, so hurry if you want in when the majority of the fish are!


Late August Kasilof River silver salmon from last season


Looking ahead, our fall salmon fishery on the Olympic Peninsula projects to see increased numbers this fall with a 3 fish (no more than one wild) fishery in our primary stream.

Catching kings and coho during the same timeframe with hands-on techinques ..... this fishery has long been one of customers' favorites. Dates are very limited at this point, please contact us for our few remaining options!

Join us in over two decades of making dreams come true on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula!

Washington Fall Salmon, WinterSteelhead, and Spring Chinook Fishing

- Olympic Peninsula,Steelhead and Salmon Fishing Guides -

Now somewhat famous thanks to the books / movies of Twilight, and now the Nat Geo Channel's spectacle of The Legend of Mick Dodge, for many years the small town of Forks (pop. ~3100) was only known amongst a small segment of the public for three things: giant trees, unparalleled annual rainfall, and great fishing!

Join us on a float trip on one of the many rivers around Forks on the renowned OlympicPeninsula for king salmon to 60 pounds, silver (coho) salmon to 25, and the world's largest strain of winter-run steelhead like this one to the right. A trip with Bob offers you over two decades of guiding experience on some of the salmon and steelhead's world most fabledstreams: the Hoh, Sol Duc, Bogachiel, and Calawah Rivers.

We cater to both conventional and fly anglers and you can even do both during the course of a single day if you wish. Fishing techniques are typically very hands-on but are also able to be geared towards anglers of any ability level. If there's a particular technique that you wish to learn or utilize, we'll be happy to accommodate your request.

We offer guests the opportunity tofish from either a heated driftboat or inflatable Puma raft,  so wehave the flexibility to fish any section of river at any waterlevel. Our Washington salmon &steelhead fishing season runs from September through late May and offers anglers world-class fisheries within a few hours drive of the Seattle area.
