Fishing with Jim was great. He is very knowledgeable and is very in tune with the River. He knew what fish were biting and where they were. He had a backup plan to fish for Rainbow Trout in case we were unable to fish for King Salmon for any reason and was ultimately able to put us on multiple King Salmon. It was an incredible experience to catch King Salmon with Bald Eagles circling everywhere during a beautiful day on the Kenai River. I would highly recommend Jim to anyone looking for a great day of Alaska fishing!

I've fished with Jim for over 20 years now with friends and strangers alike. He has consistently caught fish from late May thru Sept because the Kenai and Kasilof rivers are his life along with great family. He has consistently treated everyone with respect and is really great with novices. If there are fish in the river, Jim will get you there and catch salmon or trophy trout. He is truely a one percenter!

Highly recommend Jim Rusk for a salmon fishing adventure! We heard about Jim in Colorado when planning our first visit to Alaska. The outing was a highlight of the trip and we returned with a freezer full of large silver salmon! We will book with Jim whenever we return to Alaska.

We had booked a trip with Capt Jim all the way back in April. He even gave me a discount since it was so late in the season. We were fishing mid Oct. Ends up the river is all flooded up and has a lot of mud in it. He called us to cancel. Said all it would be is a boat ride , no chance to catch fish. He set up a meeting time and place and gave us a FULL REFUND . Thank You. Will save your number for the next trip.

We booked Jim for a Kenai trip to catch some silver salmon - Jim did not disappoint! We each caught our limit and had a blast while doing it. Jim is an excellent guide. He knows where the fish are and how to catch them, and he makes sure you are having fun. I would HIGHLY recommend him for anyone serious about fishing in Alaska. I’m already planning my next trip with him in 2019!
