Had a great day fishing today with Nolan on the Alsea River. My son in law caught a limit each of king salmon. Nolan is very knowledgeable - top end equipment and boat. Would highly recommend Nolan fo...r a great day on the river. See More

The passion Nolan shows in his work is contagious! He's knowledgeable, friendly and genuinely cares about your experience. I'd recommend him to anyone!

I have 2 full day seats open on July 20, 21, and 23 for king salmon fishing on the Kenai and Kasilof. That's all I have left during the peak of July kings. Price is $275 per person.

We had great fishing this past week! Hopefully more to come. For now, we're off to to the sportsman show until Sunday.

I wonder if the fish will miss me...

We have some great weather in the forecast and I still have February 13, 14, and 15 available. This time of the season is when I typically see the highest density of large wild steelhead. Contact me if interested!

With heavy rains and rising rivers we kept #keephammering and were able to scratch out a few fish, today.

I have a few days open in the middle of February if anyone is looking to lean some rockets!

One of my most memorable days from June this year!

15yo Steven traveled up to Alaska by himself, paying his own way. He traded labor for a place to camp and process limits of Russian river sockeye to bring home to his family in Oklahoma. A client of mine (Jim) discovered Steven camped out behind the lodge.

Catching a king was on Steven's bucket list but he couldn't afford a trip. Lucky for him Jim's wife wasn't keen on the crappy conditions forecasted for their last day ...on the water. Jim decided he would bring Steven along and leave the Mrs. to sleep-in.

Well, the weather was cold and wet. Fishing was slow and we went all morning without a bite. Throughout the day's discussions I found Steven to be one of the most interesting and well adjusted young men I have had the pleasure to take fishing.

During a lull in the conversations I amusingly watched the teen fighting with the sandman. His head bobbed but eventually his chin found his chest and stayed put. Just as I thought we had lost him I heard the familiar creak of a rod holder under strain. "STEVEN, FISH!!"

His rod was buried and line was peeling. 100' behind the boat a dime bright king was sharking across the hole, throwing a rooster tail as it ripped back toward the ocean. In a flash Steven had the rod in his hands and was expertly battling with the salmonid. The fish was particularly feisty, treating us with 3 water clearing jumps and line sizzling runs. Gradually the king tired and Steven studiously steered him to the net.

Success! I nosed the boat to the bank and Steven hurriedly jumped out and knelt down with his prized fish. A couple quick pictures and we sent the 40" buck on his way.

Congratulations, Steven! You absolutely deserved that fish. Good luck on all your future fishing endeavors!!!

Jason with a great first run Kenai King from early June, 2017. It's never too early to start thinking about your Alaska trip!

It was recently brought to my attention that I've been slacking on the social media posts! I'm still out there mixing up. Been back in Oregon for a month now and its been a productive fall so far.

The recent rains have pushed the fish up into the river where we will be targeting kings using the drift boat. This is one of my favorite fisheries! We employ multiple techniques while targeting fresh kings rolling in off a high tide. Back-bouncing, bobber fishing, flatline plugs, diver and eggs, etc.

I have some open days coming up if anyone is interested in getting on the water. I anticipate fishing will be solid next week!

Fishing is definitely picking up! One fish shy of a limit today but no complaints from this crew. I have June 3rd and 5th open if anyone is looking to fish. It should only get better...

A truly magnificent steelhead from yesterday! High water has made this season a constant challenge and some days it feels a little more like work. But, if you keep grinding it out the rewards are out there. This picture was taken by my client (Chad) while I was setting up to release his lifetime fish and it just happened to capture the essence of a flawless trophy buck.

Dan landed his largest steelhead to date yesterday!! The big buck wasn't very cooperative in or out of the water but we were able to get a couple pics before we let him swim. Thanks for playing, big fella!

Tony came down from Seattle for a couple days last week and shook hands with a grip of fish! The 2 days we shared on the water were nothing short of awesome. Thanks for playing, buddy!

It was quite the drive to the river today!

Sitting in my booth at Willamette valley sportsman show and I found this gem while showing pictures. This rowdy Kenai buck was quite the acrobat!! Great fight and a great release. Excited for July!
