River Calloway provided the best guide service ever on the Kenai for our crew! He knows the river, put us on the fish, and provided a safe, fun, Alaskan adventure filled with memories that will last forever! Thank You! Will be back again!

I have nothing but great things to say about a recent fishing experience with Alaskan Widespread Fishing Adventures. In spite of challenging weather, lower fish counts and other factors that guides cannot control, the guides for this company worked exceptionally hard to make the trip...More

Our guide River was exceptional for service, safety and knowledge. We heard that Fish and Wildlife closed the Kenai for King salmon and Kasilof River had extremely low numbers of King. A charter captain in Seward said it was the lowest level of King Salmon...More

Rueben, I am interested in a fishing adventure for my grandson and myself. He will be 12 years old entering middle school. We feel that this is the age we have our last hook on him . Years to follow, he will not be excited about being with grandma and grandpa. We want this to be an exciting experience fishing for Halibut or if you think the chances would be better with Salmon OK, but he is really set on Halibut. I am not sure of all the logistics , but we will arrive in Anchorage July 2nd with the intention of going to your area for the fishing experience. Please, are we going to the right place for the Halibut ? For us this is a one time giant financial venture. I want him to experienced catching several halibut, is this realistic ? Provide me with ideas the lodging for three ,two nights, Halibut fee, freezing the catch to send home,and anything you can share. This is a one time shot with our oldest grandchild, with three more to follow. Ed, as well as your reviews have you almost walking on water, really looking forward to meeting you and Mindy. As per our phone conversation, I will call you or you will call me ( I forgot already ) around 5-5;30 Monday. Stan Canaris 610-929-1533
