I love these guys. This is my 4th trip with Alaska Fishing and Lodging. Tyland and Damond are THE BEST guides. This year we had Leyton as a 3rd guide, and he was a great addition!
I have reviewed these guys in the past and have little to add. The accomodations were the same. Comfortable, clean cabins. Don't expect super luxury or daily room service. Expect a practical, efficient, temperature controlled cabin, to add to a classic Alaskan experience. This place is perfect for the "father-son" trip.
As usual, Tyland, Damond,and now Leyton will do everything possible to make sure you get your fish. This might involve waking up fairly early, but it is worth it. My advice to the beginners/first timers. Be patient when trying to hook the sockeye salmon. The technique for catching sockeye takes a little time to get the hang of. But once you get it, it's easy...and really fun.
The Fishing and Game dept. didn't allow keeping the Kings this year.....again. Frustrating, but maybe that's the right thing to do. I hope the numbers for the King Salmon improve so that people can keep them again in the future. Tyland and Damond have found a way to adapt to the tough conditions established by Fishing and Game and made it fun for people to catch the Sockeye instead.
These guys are the best. I almost regret writing this review since I know it will only make them more popular. But if you have once chance to fish the Kenai, you can't go wrong with Alaska Fishing and Lodging.
