Stream Fishing
September 08, 2019
Both Levy and Uncle Mike were really nice and helpful! The group we went with was friendly and everyone got along well. Unfortunately, the fish did not really go after lures, so it turned into snagging the fish in any way possible. This was a bit disheartening for people who enjoy fishing as we are not used to catching fish in this fashion. However, the salmon definitely put up a good fight once they were hooked. It would have been nice to try and fish for other types of fish as well as going to a different location as this excursion was 3.5 hours and we stayed in one spot. The icing on the cake however, was seeing an Alaskan Brown Bear on our trip back to the boat which was awesome.

Bears and lots of fish
August 06, 2019
My husband went on this tour while I took the kids on a wildlife viewing tour. Well, his group got to fish and saw a bear so he got the best of both worlds. The guides were vigilant and equipped with bear guns and also knowledgeable about the local fish and fishing spots. He caught 2 species of salmon, pink and silver. All gear was provided and in good condition. It was my husband’s favorite excursion!

Again the fishing was poor this day, but the guide more than made up for it with his bubbly personality and running history/comentary.

Best Adventure
September 13, 2017
We booked this excursion for my Birthday. Our guide Horace made it the best trip ever. He took us to a great fishing spot. We caught just under 30 fish between the three of us. Some pink salmon, some silver (Coho), and a couple trout. The scenery was breathtaking, and the experience was second to none. I would recommend this excursion to anyone and I will book this again if I am ever back.

Stream fishing by Hoonah
August 24, 2017
This was a highlight experience of my 12 day Alaskan trip. Our guide knew so much about the area, and truly enhanced the adventure. The spot he selected to fish was so pristine. We had a small party (six plus the guide) and he carried his large rifle whenever we were out of the van. I learned so many facts he shared about his brown bear experiences and salmon in the area. The beautiful surroundings and our great guide, would have been worth the experience even if I hadn't caught and released 18 salmon, who gave a thrill with each landing. Then, when we were done and back at the van, he said, "walk quietly to the bridge. I just spotted a large brown and her two cubs walking near where we just left." Sure enough, we watched the two-year-old cubs and mom. Then we took a quick van tour of Hoonah with lots of local knowledge about growing up there, and the lifestyle. The experience was awesome, and will bring satisfaction to me whenever I think of it.

Cruise Excursion was Fantastic
July 27, 2017
We booked a 4 hour fishing excursion with 5 in our party (July 18). The total group was only 7 so we had a very personal experience. We fished from shore at the mouth of an inlet as the pink salmon were congregating in preparation of their spawn. In our group we caught 26 fish (mostly salmon with a few trout) up to 10 lbs. Our guide, Horace, was fantastic and helped the novices with everything. Half of the tour was the drive to and from the location. Since we didn't see any bears during our drives (although we saw plenty of skat) Horace extended the trip an extra hour to find a momma brown bear with her two cubs. He was fantastic and shared not only his world but some smoked salmon and deer jerky. The only negative was the equipment. We broke two rods but we dealt with it without a problem. I highly recommend this tour and Horace.
