Booked a day trip to float Clear Creek outside Telketna Alaska. We helicoptered in and landed on a gravel bar in the river. The action was immediate! While the guide was preparing the boat we fished the bar and caught Rainbow trout. After launching we...More

I’m so sorry you felt rushed. We do send out a confirmation email stating where to get fishing licenses and that you need to bring drinks and snacks, along with what to expect and what to wear. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your...More

We went 'fly fishing' with Dave Fish, since the reviews seemed pretty good. We got a loser of a guide who couldn't be bothered with us. Don't waste your money. You'd have a better experience fishing from shore than using Dave Fish.More

Where to start? It is hard to find words to describe the five day fishing trip we experienced with Dave. If you're looking for a five star resort this is not it. But if you're a die hard fisherman book your trip now! Dave and...More
