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.

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.
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.

Our guide Jacob was great. He was friendly, comical and very informative. The stream he took us to was full of Pinks running up to spawn. We saw a brown bear run into the stream 50 yards away and grab a salmon. Wow! it was like National Geographic. We felt perfectly safe because Jacob was packing. Besides the bear we saw Bald Eagles and ducks. I would definitely go agian.

An enjoyable drive through National Forest took us to a beautiful stream filled with salmon. Our guide Jacob was easy going and as helpful as anyone could be, and just a perfect companion for a day of fishing. Our other companion was a brown bear who crossed the stream as we arrived and headed upstream and then returned later to feed on salmon across the stream from us. Everyone caught salmon and left with big smiles.
