As a guest for the past two years , I can attest to their guide's ability to put you on fish. Solid equipment, willing to work, and personable. Cabins are great, clean, and stocked with the essentials. When weather forced a change in fishing plans, a list of other options was made available. Since we were on our way to launch, that required some work on their end to minimize our disruption. I fished the early June run on the Kasilof in a drift boat. Moose, eagles and otters enhanced the trip!

Mark from Fishology was fantastic to work with. We spent a great day on the Kosilov hunting king salmon, got 1 native fish and missed a few others. Nick our guide was awesome and worked very hard to get us hooked up and make sure our experience was top notch. Since it wasn't a hatchery fish we weren't able to keep the king unfortunately. The next day we fished out of Homer and killed it on halibut and rockfish. The entire fishing experience was set up perfectly and I can't recommend Mark enough. If you're going to Alaska and want to get on the water, connect with Mark.

Spent 10 days fishing Alaska in July 2023. Booked our last day of fishing for sockeye on the Kenai River with Fishology. The guide, Nick took my friend and I to a public stream bank that afforded us a large amount of room to fish. Nick coached us both until we started catching sockeye then watched. After 12 sockeye combined we were exhausted and really excited with the days catch. Fishology did an outstanding job of providing state of the art gear, a knowledgeable and friendly guide and most importantly a safe days fishing. If you ever get the chance to fish with Fishology, book them. You will be glad you did. They run a very reputable business that gives all guests a very personable experience. Thank you so much Fishology!

We had two different Fishology guides on 3 separate days, and both were outstanding. Knowledgeable, personable, and cheerful, they put in the extra effort to make sure we got into fish even in less than ideal high water conditions. We had a halibut trip cancelled by bad weather, and Mark found us an alternate trip on very short notice that made up for it very nicely. We have been on guided trips on 3 continents, and these folks are in the top tier of outfitters as far as we are concerned.

This is our third year fishing with Fishology and Mark always hooks us up with great fishing guides who are knowledgeable and hard-working! We faced some weather challenges for our halibut trip and Mark was able to switch it up for us to make sure we were able to get out on the ocean and fill our freezer. Our river trips are always a great time - boats are clean and organized and the guides know their stuff. Highly recommend.

Second time fishing with these guys and it was another great time. Our guide Greg put us on fish early, leaving some extra time to catch some rainbows. He was fun, professional and entertaining. Mark has a good thing going here and I'd highly recommend a fishing trip with these guys!

This is the only place to stay and fish. I have been going here since it was built. You will not find better accommodations and knowledgeable staff and guides. Fishing is always full limits and the ability to cook right out of the river. Everything is provided clean cabins fully stocked (seriously just bring your clothes). Amazing BBQ/Firepit area with covered area in case of rain. All gear is available-free, waders, poles Already rigged, cleaning station, vacuum packer, and freezer. The boats are 1st class, and the guides are a hoot to fish with along the river just a short distance from the lodge. You seriously will not want to leave. I have brought over 60 people to this business, and it is the only place I recommend. Friends, family, and business associates of continued to enjoy their stay over the years. What are you waiting for-QUIT WISHING, GO FISHING. Tell Mark Sue says Hi...

WOW!
We just returned from Alaska to NW Tennessee, and had a wonderful experience booking with Mark through Fishology.
Our first trip was cancelled on June 9, 2021 due to weather. We had only one other day to get to fish for halibut, and that was the next day! They got us hooked up with a boat going out of Homer for then. ((originally it was for Ninichik)
It was a bit of a drive from Soldotna ( arrival time was 5:45), but it was well worth it!
We were with Brian( captain) , Chase and Conner. They were phenomenal.
Extremely helpful and attentive while fishing. They really seemed to enjoy what they were doing!😁
Thanks Fishology!

Wanted to express our appreciation to Mark and his Fishology team for another great fishing (catching) season on the Kenai after trying many different guides in previous years. We fish the Kenai every summer and Mark is our go to for the last several years. No matter what months June-Sept we are there, Mark is always able to work my family into his schedule and if the fish are in the river, he will find them. Great people, good gear, very knowledgeable and lots of fun to fish with. Thanks again Mark and looking forward to this summer on the river with you.

We have stayed at Orca lodge several times. Mark always goes out of his way to accommodate requests. Whether it be fishing, sightseeing or whatever it is you might want to do while in Alaska. His river guides are polite, professional and do their best to get your limits of fish. The lodge is a wonderful place to stay. The cabins are clean and comfortable with a river front view and a great place to fish. We will always stay at The Orca lodge when fishing the peninsula. It's the only place you need to be!
