Everyone in our group of four landed a king salmon and hooked several more that got off the line before we could get them to the net. Todd provided all the gear we needed and put us on the fish.

Booked Todd for 2 days. Fishing was slow and he offered that we didn't have to honor the 2nd day. We decided to go the 2nd day. Again, not a lot of fish, but it's called fishing and not catching. River and scenery were awesome.

Todd was amazing. He was very helpful and patience since we were novice fishermen. Todd also arranged for a Grizzly Bear to come down to the shore on the side of the river. GREAT TRIP AND I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TODD AND FISHBONE CHARTERS.

Todd did a great job accommodating a family of six which included two children 8 and 10 years old. My 10 year old caught a beautiful salmon with Todd's expert assistance on a trout rod not meant for a fish that big. He worked very...More
