Best Fishing Trip of my life! by Doug Benzenburg

I spent 4 day’s fishing with a new location each day and landed over 250 fish (Rainbows, Dolly Varden, Steelhead, Silvers, and of course Pinks) including the biggest Rainbow I’ve ever caught. 33.5 inches and a girth of 19.5 inches, estimated weight of about 18 – 20 pounds….WOW! Great Alaska’s hospitality was absolutely the best. Our guide was a rock star when it came to knowledge of the rivers and sounding area. Can’t wait for my return visit early September ’09. Thanks for making this trip one to remember and for the record books!

Great Alaska Cont. Education trip by John E. Murphy

We had another wonderful trip this year and I was able to be there for a total of three weeks. Now I just have to figure out how to get my wife to let me come for a month straight. The flight back to Anchorage on the float plane was a definite special addition. We made a little movie of the event if anyone would like to view it on YouTube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5fkhqLxmOk

My solo trip to Alaska… by Audrey Hertzel

My solo trip to Alaska was everything and so much more than I thought it would ever be! From the moment I arrived at the lodge, I knew I was in for the week of my life. Awesome Fishing, Crashing Glaciers and Grizzly Bears (Oh My!) just to name a few! The friendly staff and guides, five star dinners and the overall Alaskan experience exceeded my every expectation. What a phenomenal trip!

Amazing Bear Camp! by Terry Tollefsbol

We just returned from a three day trip to Bear Camp. It was absolutely wonderful. The staff at the camp site were very friendly and took great care of us. Excellent meals and wine in the evening. Our guides did everything they could to get us to the best loctaions for photos. We were fortunate to have the viewing platform for when the bears were up in the stream behind the camp and Dylon and Dennis escorted us to the beach area when the bears had moved toward the bay. We never felt threatened even when the bears came within just a few feet of us. Dennis had the S & W 500 and Dillion had the shotgun, but according to both of them, they have never had to use them. Overall it was a great adventure including the beach landings in the Cessna 207! Truly the trip of a lifetime.

Our families best vacation YET! by Rich Signorello

After spending a good part of my life as a Salmon, Trout and Steelhead fisherman, fishing the pacific northwest streams, rivers and and ocean I can honestely say that I have experienced the pinnicle of my fishing career. I don’t know of anywhere where a person can catch 4 species of salmon in one day on this great planet. I spent my younger days as a deckhand on some of the party boats out of the San Francisco bay area and even guided the northern California and southwest Oregon area for Salmon and Steelhead trout. My experience this past week at the Great Alaske Adventure Lodge was by far the most complete and pampered fishing and outdoor adventures I and my family have ever experienced. The lodge and its wonderful staff met our every need from the time we planned and arrived to the sad day the float plane came to pick us up at the lodge beach. It truly was a bittersweet moment to leave with the staff waving good-bye as the float plane taxied and took off down river to take us back to Anchorage. I want to thank the lodge owners and their absolutely wonderful staff for making our vacation the best ever. Your guides were the best, with their knoweledge and professional attitudes. The bear camp experience was way more than I had ever expected or dreamed it could be, I feel that I now have a much better understanding of the famous Alaskan brown bear and its life cycle. The food and attention paid to every guest was incredible…the best bar-none. I can’t Thank You enough. Rich Signorello

The perfect combination! by Dan and Pat Turnbaugh

My wife and I spent 7 days on a “Combination Trip” that was the best vacation ever. We started with bear watching on the first day with a sighting of 19 bears at one time! My wife caught a fish that was so big, I had to hold on to her so she wouldn’t fall in! On the glacier cruise we saw orca whales, sea lions, moose, puffins and even an otter enjoying himself. The staff and guides were incredible and the food was out of this world! Can’t wait to come back!
