Control the Controllables

What’s the best time to fish, morning or evening, when is the salmon run the best, when should we book our trip, these are just a few of the many questions we get as guides, that have no right or wrong answer.  As a fair chase fishing guide on the legendary Kenai River, I get to see and experience it all.  I can’t predict the weather or the salmon runs.  I don’t know when the best of the day is gonna happen until it happens.  I deal with Mother Nature and what she throws my way daily.  What I do know is that a good guide controls the controllable’s and let’s Mother Nature take care of the rest.  Control the controllable’s means you use the best gear, have a clean boat, show up on time, have all the local up to date knowledge on the fishery, and are willing to crawl across barb-wire and broken glass to give your people a great fishing trip.  So when you pick a guide to fish with on the Kenai River pick one that controls the controllable’s and you’ll have a great trip.

Launched out of Cooper Landing on the Kenai and had a blast. Took tons of great pictures and video and most importantly caught some fish. Honestly, just being out there in nature on the river was worth the price of admission. You can't get that kind of vibe sitting indoors.

Jasons Guide Service is in a class of his own! Not even kidding. Dont bother with the other guys. I already have so I'll save you some time and money. Jason knows this river system like the back of his hand and will get you on the fish more times than not. He is a wealth of knowledge

To echo the other reviewer on here, he was right. Jason is straight Legendary! I booked Jason based on that guys review alone and it paid off. Not only did we catch fish but I learned so much from Jason. I've fished with other guides that barely tell you anything and try to keep the secrets to themselves it seems like.

Fished with a couple other guiding companies in Alaska and Jason is pretty dang awesome! Booked a full day with him for me and my two boys and we caught lots of fish, made memories, and took awesome pics and video. Glad we took our road trip through Cooper Landing and found Jason!

Fishing on the Kenai River at it's finest pretty much sums it up. I hired Jason to get me on a monster rainbow trout and he did not let me down! I understand it doesn't always work out this well but I'm thankful for the opportunity and his willingness to explain certain things to me. Thanks Jason and I'll be back!!
