5 star never been skunked, John definitely has been a student of the area since a young age and it shows with his multiple techniques to get the fish in the boat! Glad we found him we also enjoy his company and laid back attitude. Very professional and fun! "LOINS"

Been on a few trips with John. Never fails to make a funny trip. Has amazing humor and knows the River in and out. Will always put you in the right spot. If you ever plan on doing a charter through the salmon River contact john will always hook you up.

Had an absolute blast! John was awesome from the time we got on the boat until the time we left at the end of the day. If your looking for a guided trip do yourself a favor and just call John you won’t regret it! Thanks again John I’ll definitely be back this fall!

Excellent guide, we had planned a trip for 2 and had very little experience salmon fishing. John made the trip feel relaxed and encouraged us to try new techniques such as fly fishing. Definitely the ultimate experience!

John is a top notch guide you will not be disappointed when booking a trip with him.. he will do everything in his power to make sure you have the best experience while on a trip with him. From his boat to his gear he takes a lot of pride in being a fishing guide.

Awesome day on the river, on a cold day in November. John fished very hard and used all of his knowledge to help everyone on the boat land a steelhead. It was a day where nobody on the river was hooking up and the fish were just not biting. He knew the spots, the tackle, and the ...

I have finished with John twice, and both experiences were epic. He knows the river like the back of his hand and there were plenty of times where he would say cast right there and on the first cast I would hook up. He is very accommodating. I was cold. He gave me wool socks. He ...

I had a great trip with John. He’s a knowledgeable guide and is very personable. I’ve done a bit of fishing but never this type of fishing. John was a good instructor and I caught some great fish. Will definitely use him again when I am in the area.

One of the best fishing experiences of my life. John knows the salmon river like the back of his hand. I'm looking forward to doing it again this spring.
