    Default Naknek River Camp? Anybody ever book a week with them?

    I'm thinking of booking a trip with these guys next August for silvers.

    Anybody ever use them or have any feedback?

    I don't personally have any experience with these guys, but is pretty hard to screw up a Naknek fishing trip. Although, I would have said the same about the Little Willow.

    To be fair, the fishing part was fine, it was the tying of the stringer part he screwed up

    If you do a little digging you can do better. A good place to start would be Rainbow Bend or Katmai Trophy Lodge. Both places are top notch from my personally experience and watching how people operate on the river.

    Thanks guys. K-fan, thanks for the suggestion. When you say "better" what do you mean? I checked both those places out, and both are considerably more expansive.

    I'm assuming they fish the same waters, so is the accommodations, food, or personal you're referring too? Because really, the accommodations or food are a distant second to the fishing to me.

    Actually, they don't often fish the same parts of the river. They are located in different parts of the river and a lot of times the lodges fly people out to fish feeder streams in the area. I suggested them because they have better guides in my opinion, better bang for your buck. Like you said it isn't cheap to get there, and I would want to get the most value out of my money. There are other reasons as well but I don't think posting it here is the right place to do so. Ultimately it is your money, but if you want assurance I would strongly consider the places I mentioned. The place you were asking about may meet your expectations, but the other places will work a lot harder for you.

    Default good business but used them many years ago

    I did a few days of fishing in early June for the opener (2009?) before their outfit was fully up and running for the season. Got a boat and a small cabin(no running water) for a great price. Couldn't have done it better but I already knew many of the fishing holes.

    Its not really that hard of a river to figure out, and in most cases guides will help you out with information on the river. But if you want to fish above the lake in the smaller streams it might be more difficult and a little harder to get people to talk. The river over all is a very nice place and there is excellent fish to be had. IMHO whatever you pay the trip is worth it.
