I have always wanted to fish Alaska. My 35 yr old son and I fish Salmon every year in the lake onterio area of New York State, Jimmy Jacks Lodge was perfect for the two of us. A small rustic cabin about 1/2 mile from main lodge. We did have to drive to the main lodge every day to have breakfast and Colleen was a perfect hostess .The most experienced guide was Art Miller , who in my opinion did everything possible to put us on fish. the tidal swings being the 2nd largest in the world does make it difficult but his experience helps. He is a true gentleman. I would go back just to fish with him. As for the other guides. I have fished salmon for 40 yrs, I know how to fish lol, the guides are very young and I am sure with time will acquaint themselves with drift boat fishing. The Russian river was the most fun of any of the rivers we fished. I am buying land in the area and would book next yr only if Art Miller is still with Jimmy. I will fish the other rivers on my own., I think JJL and his staff do their best and for the money it is a good deal, fishing is not always catching. People like Art Miller and Colleen makes this a great experience .
