Guide was very attentive for slow fishing day

We went back in 8/24/12 for a half day trip. Greg was our guide and told us the weather was a bit cold but we’ll get what we can. He was very attentive the whole trip, when we did not catch anything at the first spot he moved us to another where we got bites while others in the area were not. While I only got one, my husband got two, and the other person with us got one, Greg never stopped trying the whole time we were out there fishing. I know it’s hit or miss so we were disappointed that it wasn’t a good day, but we still got to go with our 3 silver salmon. Then Greg told us if we have time there was a restaurant that would cook our fish for $10, we went (I have since forgotten the name of the restaurant) and they charged exactly what he said, plus they gave us salad, and sides. It was cooked perfectly and we enjoyed our meal thanks to Greg’s suggestion…which is why they get 4 stars from us. We are going again this August, and I plan on booking with them again.

Great trip

We went on a half day trip on 6/18/14. Jason was a great guide. He worked hard to put us on the fish with the right tackle. Three out of the five on our boat landed kings from a middle of the road salmon run. Eagles everywhere….beautiful river (Deshka) … an all around great day

What a blast!

We booked an early morning trip and had our limit by 7 a.m. Jerry and Cali were great guides. I’d definitely recommend Fishermans Choice.

What a great time!

Jerry and Kali were awesome, They brought us to the fish. You cannot make them bite though but we caught lots of salmon just not the good tasting ones though but it was still well worth the money. We had a blast.


This was a great trip on the Talkeetna River!  They supplied all the gear, had a great guide (Greg) who took us to the perfect spot where we caught our limit of Salmon (Silvers) would definitely do it again!

Can’t wait to get back to “our” Alaska and friends at Fisherman’s Choice

Terri is too honest, but our family will fish with her always.  When AK Fish & Game closed King season prior to our arrival in Alaska, Terri laid out our options and we had a fantastic trip in spite of not being able to land any Kings.  We fished in Big Lake and caught beautiful trout , a large Dolly Varden and had amazing wildlife/Denali  views.  The next day our 16 year old fanatic fisherwoman daughter caught a pink on the Little Su and had the time of her life with guides Greg and Jerry.  Can’t wait to get back to “our” Alaska and friends at “Fisherman’s Choice”.

Will keep coming back

I met Ray and “World Famous” Terri at the outdoor fair in Palmer.  The fair is so small that if you blink, you will miss half the vendors.  I was lucky not to miss Ray and Terri’s booth.  There were so many fishing services.  I have used their services twice since then.  Ray’s loves to fish and really enjoys being out there with you.  Terri is always great on the phone.  I have been fishing around the world: Chile, New Zealand, Argentina, Mexico, Alaska, Montana, Macedonia, France, England, Australia, etc., etc.  Terri is the first fishing guide to say to me, “Wait, the fishing isn’t great right now.”  What kind of crazy guide says that?  I tell you what kind, one who loves their customers and wants them to keep coming back.  I WILL.  If you plan on fishing in Alaska, DON’T just go to the Kenai, although that’s great.  Fish the Mat-Su Valley and be sure to call Fisherman’s Choice!!
