This was our first time to Alaska and wanted to spend some time fishing. The staff, guides, cooks, waitstaff were all very accommodating and did everything they could to ensure you were happy. We fished 5 days and although the fishing was slow, the guides did a superb job of trying to put you on fish. The food was exceptional... More

My son, a good friend and I booked a 5 day fishing adventure with Russell Fishing Company. This was my friend and my 4th trip and my son's first trip. We stayed at the Alaska Hooksetter Lodge. The lodge staff (Karen, Kate, Carman and the others) were great as usual. The food was excellent and the portions were very generous.... More

I would recommend and use Russell fishing again. As with most adventures in life there are positive and negative things that happen. On our trip we had several challenges to overcome. It all started with a "lodge mate" grabbing my rental car keys by mistake on the first evening and resulting in our missing our halibut charter the next morning.... More

This vacation was a first-time visit to Alaska for me and my son, so we weren't quite sure what to expect - we had a great time, thanks to all of the people that worked hard to make us feel at home and like family. We stayed in a fireside lodge at their Alaska Hooksetters site and enjoyed nightly campfires,... More

Extremely disappointed, saddened, disheartened and I could continue on, but I’ll explain further. First of all I live on the east coast so going to Alaska for a fishing trip is not just a quick flight and/or drive for me and required me to take off extra days of work. My dad wanted to take his two daughters on one... More

It is unfortunate that Courtney G feels this way. As a third party writing the review over a year later, she doesnt have all the facts straight. Russell prides itself on customer service as indicated by the many positve reviews. Nonetheless, we have learned from this experience and make sure all guests read their invoices and study our websites to... More

The food was terrific, the lodging was wonderful. Glenn helped me with waders & rain gear. Russells fishing was great, all the crew were helpful & a lot... More

Had a great trip with Russell Fishing. We stayed at the hook setters lodge. The staff provided excellent service. The food was excellent. They accomodated us when we wanted to add another day of fishing. Guides were awesome and we caught fish every day. Will definitely be going back.

First rate all the way. Everyone at Hooksett ers and Russell Fishing guides made our week long fishing trip a huge success. We caught lots of fish thanks to our guides. The halibut trip with Zach and Forrest was outstanding even though the weather cut our trip short they knew where to fish and we all caught our limit. Thank... More

What a wonderful experience!! We carefully examined several fishing opportunities on the Kenai and settled on Russell Fishing and Glenn. Glenn was very good about sending us information several months prior to our trip and continued up to the day we arrived. The "camp" was more than we expected, the food was great, and the daily get togethers with appetizers... More
