I reserved a salmon fishing trip for four with Kenny Meserve and confirmed it with him by phone the day before our ship was going to arrrive. When we got off the ship and walked to his van we were told that another group had more people (14) and that there was no room for us. His guide Phil could not get in touch with Kenny to send another van and either could I. From what I could tell of Phil the term guide is used very loosely in Alaska. We were basically dumped for a larger fee. This was our trip of a lifetime and it was unforgivably tarnished by this so called guide service.
We found another guide service to take us out called Teckk Outfitters and they saved the day. Their number is 907-321-2673.
Later we saw Phil from Brown Bear Lodge either fishing or snagging salmon in a pool with all 14 people fishing shoulder to shoulder on the side of a stream. Very sporting indeed.
