Dan Maher and I, along with our sons Evan and Jordan, were guided by Dan’s son Chris from Beyond Boundaries Expeditions in a 100-mile epic journey down the Kanektok River in the Togiak National Wildlife Refuge Wilderness area of southwest Alaska.

​If you are ready to catch fish until your arm aches and are prepared for a wilderness adventure in a remote part of Alaska then this trip is a must for you.

Our target fish were coho (silver) salmon and rainbow trout. We landed scores of each species with mice on the surface, streamers and eggs. In addition, each of us landed hundreds of Dolly’s as well.

​Bent rods, “doubles,” and “foursomes” were too numerous to count. The number of fish in the Kanektok River is truly amazing, easily in the millions, and the fish were willing to eat.

Highly recommended.
