I love that it is all planned out for me. Jessica and Glenn take care of the lodging, fishing trips, equipment at the cabins and are always there with just a phone call. This was our 3rd year with Russells and are already planning 2021. We are never disappointed. The guides are so personable, friendly and knowledgeable at what they do. We've stayed at 3 different Russell locations and thoroughly enjoyed each one. I highly recommend doing a flyin trip and salt combo, worth every penny.

We've only been once and had to postpone this year. The team at Russell Fishing have been amazing in working with us and we are so looking forward to next year. Our trip, two years ago once "once in a lifetime" and next year, we hope to make it "Twice in a Lifetime." Thank you to the Russell Fishing team and We look forward to seeing you again in 2021!

The boat Captains and guides were knowledgeable, fun, and accommodating. I wish we had an Alaska road map and a better understanding of what to see and do in the area. A list of restaurants would be nice too. If you want to fish, this is the place to be. I personally prefer printed material as opposed to all e-mail. But, I understand that most bussiness's handle things that way. All in all it was an awesome experience. (Even with the covid 19 to deal with.) I would also recommend any other airline than Alaska Air. Most people that we spoke with laughed and said, yes, the 2nd trip up we took Delta. Traveling 10 hours, with no time to stop and grab anything to eat, forced to wear a mask, running to catch your connection flight, was miserable. With the 3 hour time difference, we were starved and exhausted. Alaska Air also charges to ship your fish. Russell Fishing schedules you for as many fishing trips as you can handle. They are a fisherman's ideal destination.

July 2020 would have been my 3rd trip with Russell Fishing Company unfortunately due to Covid I postponed. Since I am a senior citizen and in a high risk group I communicated with Glen and postponed without penalty for 2021. I was with a group of 13 anglers who all postponed. My past trips with Russell went flawless and on each trip everyone in our group went home with 50 lbs of fish. Glen is a stand up guy and the people who work for him strive to make it a trip of a lifetime. From big King salmon to gut busting halibut Glen constantly communicated with our group about our daily options dodging the ever changing weather and local conservation rule changes which occur frequently. The accommodations are exceptional with all amenities for cooking our catch either in the cabin kitchen or outdoors. The cabins were spotless and everything worked just fine. Glen and his team checked on us daily to make sure everything was up to our standards and to prepare us for the next days fishing. I highly recommend Russell for a great Alaskan experience.

Best trip of my life!! I was a little concerned about taking this trip because of Covid and had a good talk with Glenn about everything prior to making a final decision and he was very helpful with our options. After weighing everything out my wife, son, Dad and I all decided to make the and fish with Russel fishing last July. The accommodations were great, we stayed at the Hi-Lo lodge in a great two bedroom condo over looking the boat dock that Russell uses to launch most of its Kenai river trips. The condo had a nice little kitchen to cook in as well as barbecue grilles on the gorgeous deck. It was also great to be able to walk straight to the boat from the front door of the condo during the mornings. Glenn was great about helping us get a fly out to crescent lake with Alaska West and recommended a great guide named Badger. Captain Zach was fantastic for our salt water trip and landed us on Amazon halibut fishing, the boat had caught its limit of halibut in a little over an hour, then we went trolling for salmon. The guides for the Kenai were equally amazing, we caught a good amount of fish every day we were out, in fact between my wife, dad, and myself, we brought back 150 pounds of fish. I can’t say enough good things about the entire experience.
