    I was hoping to have respectful and polite guides ready and willing to accommodate our wish to catch salmon with a fly rod on the Kenai River. I was very disappointed in our experience with Alaska Rivers Company (ARC). Specifically, I found that:
    • ARC can’t tailor to your needs – Despite having reserved two boats for 9 people for a full day of fishing and getting confirmation of the timeline in advance, they were unable to accommodate our request to float from 8-4.

I was hoping to have respectful and polite guides ready and willing to accommodate our wish to catch salmon with a fly rod on the Kenai River. I was very disappointed in our experience with Alaska Rivers Company (ARC). Specifically, I found that:
• ARC can’t tailor to your needs – Despite having reserved two boats for 9 people for a full day of fishing and getting confirmation of the timeline in advance, they were unable to accommodate our request to float from 8-4. Our full group showed up at 7.50 a.m. for an 8 a.m. departure and waited until after 9 before ARC was ready for us and we started filling out the necessary forms. It was clear that their normal timeline was 9-5 and they could not accommodate any deviation, even if they knew about it a week in advance.
• ARC doesn’t fish the whole Kenai River – They are only licensed to fish from Kenai Lake to Skilak Lake. If your goal is to catch salmon and the salmon haven’t made it through Skilak Lake yet, you likely won’t catch as many salmon. ARC does not cover the whole river and will not change their normal routes to find where the most fish are.
• ARC guides are rude – We had two guides for our group, Lucas and Jessie. They yelled at you while instructing how to play your fish when you had one on the line. When I caught a fish, the yelling was so confusing and negative, I chose to break the line off the fish rather than continue being yelled at. It wasn’t worth it!
• ARC has poorly maintained gear – The fly line and hooks were worn and weak from use. The first time I had a fish on the line, the line broke because there was a knot holding up the split-shot. The fly line that was on my reel had cracks showing. The hook was bent with a crook in it from where it had been bent and re-straightened without success.
