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.

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!!

Jason is the best fishing guide in the Cooper Landing area bar none. I have fished with 4 local guides, including Jason, on the Kenai river over the last few years and none compare to Jason. He actually took the time to teach and explain certain things and I believe that's why I was able to land my personal best rainbow trout.

I had an outstanding time! Jason took the time to show how to cast and present. As a result I caught a lot of fish! Like he said, "make a rainbow catch a rainbow". He wanted me catch fish as much as I did.

I travel to Anchorage at least once a year due to work. Next time, I will definitely hire Jason for his services and you should too!

Jason is a really amazing guide. He took his time to show us all of the necessary steps and explain everything along the way. Jason is not only very knowledgable about fishing and the river, he's a fun person to be around and exciting to talk to. He really wants everyone who comes along to have a great time and catch as much fish as possible. Jason was also very quick to share any knowledge he has to give us the tools to continue exploring fishing as a great hobby. We're already looking into coming back to Alaska and booking Jason's services again!
