    Default Woman Guide on the Kenai???

    Just wondering if they're any women that guide on the Kenai, upper or lower. I think my wife would get a kick out of having a woman guide for a change.

    Tight Lines,
    Nate

    Dusty Byrd with Alaska Troutfitters is reported to be among the best guides on the Upper Kenai. I used to instruct with her (I was a ski instructor, she was a snowboard instructor), and while I've never fished with her, I've read multiple articles that attest to her skills as a guide. Even if I weren't specifically looking for a woman, Dusty would be at the top of my list when making calls.

    McClure's guide service. Steve and Rondi are good, friendly folks and they catch fish.

    Dusty is an excellent guide and you won't go wrong if you can get out with her.

    Good one Dave.

    As far as real professional lady guides I would recomend Valerie Early. Her and husband Gary are true YEAR ROUND guides. Contact now is brookings Oregon at 541-469-0525. Look up their website at Early fishing.

    Is Val any friendlier in the boat? Every time I'm on the river around her, she looks about 3/4 pissed off!

    Another nod for Dusty, she and Billy are locals and both run a top shelf outfit, and know the river as well as anyone, & better than most.

    Val, Mindy, Rondi... all actively guiding.

    Then there was the gal with the yellow Kalifornsky Guide Service boat that I haven't seen in a while.

    And the platinum blonde gal with the dark green FishRite that started out every morning at Honeymoon, who I also haven't seen for years.

    Couple years ago I watched a young athletic gal rowing clients in the lower river on a powerboat day. Maybe that was Dusty? Man she looked TOUGH on those sticks!

    I would have no issue fishing with her after watching the video. She released the tail hooked fish and it's not like she was dragging a net through the water scooping up fish

    The "Kenai Twitch" she was teaching will get you a ticket faster than you can say "floss"....

    Or Natalia?

    If George hired her, that's a good enough recommendation in and of itself...
