Book Now Putting the Bullseye on Your Target Species - Fish with Jason's Guide Service

Putting the Bullseye on Your Target Species

We’ve all heard the saying, “If I had a nickel for (pick your topic), I’d be rich.” Well, I might not be up to Warren Buffet’s level yet, but I could take the family out to the finest dining experience in Alaska with what my proceeds would be based on this one quandary.

If I had a nickel every time someone bought a ticket, flew to Alaska to target a species that was not even available to them, it would generate a pretty penny. It’s truly amazing to me how many individuals come here expecting to get into a particular species and they can’t due to the wrong timing.

My point here is that you must put the bullseye on your target species. Don’t book a silver salmon trip in June. Don’t book a sockeye salmon trip in October. And don’t think you’re going to have 30-inch rainbows jumping in the boat on the Kenai River if you’re there in July.

I could go so far to say that some periods of the season are better than others. You can find out all you need to know before hitting the “buy” button on that airline web site just by giving me a call. I’m a guide. It’s my business to know what works, when it works, and why it works, and this will ensure that you end up in the right place at the right time putting that perfect cast dead center into that target of that species you have decided to pursue. And everything else is just icing on the angling cake.

Jason….the man, the myth, the legend. We did two days with Jason and one with Caleb. All spectacular. They put us on the fish, took care of all the details and told some great stories. We had some laughs, saw some beautiful country and took home 36lbs of fish! These guys are very knowledgeable of the area and will hone your fishing skills at whatever level you are at. Stop researching “the other guys” and just book em! You can thank me later….

We had the best time with Jason and his team on our fishing trip! We did a half day with Caleb and a full day with Jason and left with over 40 pounds of salmon. Both Jason and Caleb were friendly, knowledgeable about the best spots on the river, and were great teachers on fishing technique that made it easy for all skill levels. Highly recommend Jason and his team for your next Alaskan fishing adventure!!

Jason was such a fantastic guide and teacher. First time fly fishing and he was the perfect teacher. Patient, kind, funny, but not afraid to let you know when you are in your own head and to just cast it and have fun. It was such a thrill to catch some fish and a highlight of my vacation. Would go to Jason again in a heartbeat!

Had the best time fishing with Jason. He knew exactly where to go to put us on the fish, and i feel like we laughed the entire time. If ever in the area I 100% recommend this guide service. Even if you don't catch, it is still a BEAUTIFUL river!
