Jason’s an outstanding guide!  We saw a lot, learned a lot and caught salmon and trout; this man works hard for his fee, has a great personality and made our day…

Had a great day. Jason is the most knowledgeable, professional, and respectful guide on the Kenai. He loves to fish and will put you on fish even when the count is slow. We all limited out. With no personal flossing experience, I was quickly able to pick the skill up thanks to his expertise. He’s also a good guy who treats the land, other fishers, and fishing regulations with upmost respect. On top of all that he is easy to get along with and a funny guy. I highly recommend using his service. He also gave us recommendations on a killer but simple ceviche recipe and sent us home with fat fillets in the cooler.
