Good experience! Knowledgeable guide that was pleasant. Good gear. Waders dry! Fish were a little hard to come by but we did catch a few. Grayling, rainbow, and Dolly varden. Teens enjoyed the experience! Beautiful scenery. We saw a moose with 2 calves !

We will be in Talkeetna on August 2, 2017. My grandsons, both 16 (and one an avid fisherman) and husband want to take a fishing trip on that day. Please tell me pricing and if you pick up at McKinley Princess lodge. Thank you.
