My favorite things to do are fish for giant silver salmon with a fly at the bay of pigs, and I enjoy the mountainous terrain and effort required to Guide Ptarmigan hunters each fall. I love to get out there by myself with my dog and hunt Pheasants in Montana at the season’s end.
Monte has been guiding for All Alaska Outdoors since the first year we were open. Having fished as a guide on the Kenai River for many years, Monte‘s amazing abilities have been on display for a long time, and there may not be a more versatile Kenai river fishing guide out there. Monte fiercely protects the resources with his involvement in the Fisheries Advisory Board meetings every winter. He is tireless in his guiding efforts which can become extremely time consuming, especially during the peak Sockeye season where 20 hour days are not uncommon. He helps out a bit with his sidekick Henry during Ptarmigan season and can also provide a Kenai River duck hunting experience.
A staple here at All Alaska Outdoors, Tessa is your go to for helping you plan and book your dream Alaskan Adventure.
She successfully juggles the many roles it takes to manage the lodge while being a wife and a mother of two. With the innate nurturing ability she strives to make you feel like you are truly a piece of our All Alaska Family.
She points out that her picture below would’ve included her holding a giant alaska trophy fish, except we never let her out of the office. I’ve been informed that if she doesn’t get on an Ultimate Expedition this next year she’s going to fire herself, so we will have to get that taken care of. And she is a wizard in the office!
Jason is an important fixture here at All Alaska Outdoors. Obviously, the guides are important to your ultimate success, Jason is the one responsible for making sure that the fruits of those labors make it back to your home in tiptop condition as high quality table fare. His fish processing is immaculate, and his customer service is never in question. He goes above and beyond to make sure your fish will be perfectly processed and ready for departure. Many late nights and early mornings are spent in the fish shack. I am grateful for his service year after year. We consider him part of our family.
Jim has been guiding for All Alaska Outdoors off and on for a quarter century. Last year he approached us about giving up all of his other opportunities and fishing only for the lodge. We were elated. He’s a very versatile guide, much like Monte, who really excels in Rainbow fishing the lower river, his special forte. He loves the late September / early October time frame. He’s also there to help out with Guided hunting. In his previous life, he was the executive shooting Director for Birchwood Park and he’s a level one instructor for sporting clays and skeet.
One day in the Summer of 2021, he walked down to the Talon Air dock to inquire about whether we might have any need for help with guiding Ptarmigan hunters and fly fisherman. He has been trapped ever since.
He thoroughly enjoys guiding people on their “Trips of a Lifetime”. Eric specializes in fly fishing and ptarmigan hunts but is versatile in his knowledge of all things outdoors, hunting, and fishing.
Having just received his Coast Guard license, with plenty of experience on the waters of the Kenai river, he will now be able to fill a very versatile role for All Alaska Outdoors. He will frequently be guiding our Ultimate Expedition Fly in Ptarmigan hunts and Fishing trips. Since he will have a dedicated boat available for fishing the Kenai river, and a number of other hike in destinations where his skill set can result in a successful experience, he will provide the back up plan for the groups he is guiding when flying conditions result in remote trip cancellations.
He is a fine young man with a gentle soul and has an amazing Shorthair, Maverick. We feel blessed to have him.
