The location of the ice fishing is perfect. Our guide Aaron was nice and patient, and the white Salmon tastes delicious. Chena lake is not too far from fairbanks but far enough to avoid all light polution to even see the northern lights!

Aaron was a great guide. We caught a ton of fish. He was super knowledgeable a fun to interact with. The heated cabin is super warm, so you can definitely dress relatively light. The reindeer sausage and fish that he cooked for us were delicious. Great experience.

Awesome time, my wife and I totally enjoyed our time with Aaron (who is a hoot, by the way). Good Alaskan activity to remember and good memories to pass down to our grand kids. Thank you for the deer sausage and Hot chocolate. We will be back God willing.

A little disappointed. We had a fabulous experience we rods other excursions. But here. We shared the heated hut with many other people. Which was not the problem. We spent a lot of money to go fishing. The problem was. We were told we could only catch one fish each. Ok. Well.

Customers can catch as many fish as they want. I clearly state on my website that 1 fish per person can be kept and the rest are released back into the lake. Catch and release fishing must be practiced or there will not be fish in the lake for someone else to catch. Here is what is stated on my website: "Rod’s Alaskan Guide Service practices sustainable fishing methods: You can keep 1 fish per customer for us to cook your fresh fish lunch or you can take 1 fish home. The rest of the fish are released back into the lake to grow and for others to catch another day."

We do everything we can to catch fish. There is times that fish just won't bite no matter what we try. We can see the fish and know they are there. Thank your for the review.
