Booked Todd for 2 days. Fishing was slow and he offered that we didn't have to honor the 2nd day. We decided to go the 2nd day. Again, not a lot of fish, but it's called fishing and not catching. River and scenery were awesome.

Todd was amazing. He was very helpful and patience since we were novice fishermen. Todd also arranged for a Grizzly Bear to come down to the shore on the side of the river. GREAT TRIP AND I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TODD AND FISHBONE CHARTERS.

Todd the Wildman gave us a great morning on the river. He's a competitive fisher so he made sure we were the first ones on the river (4:15 am pickup!) and at the best sandbar to catch a ton of fish. My buddy and I probably caught about 18 fish or so while we were out on the river but... More

We arrived at our fishing destination and Todd expertly set up 3 adults and a teenager with rods, reels and instructions on how to and how not to cast -- within minutes we were catching salmon. Then Todd turned to our 5 year old and 8 year old who each caught their first salmon and were delighted. In total we... More

After comprehensive research eight years ago I reserved a charter with Todd Kingery of Fishbone Charters. A half day charter catching Silver Salmon was beyond our hopes and expectations. We had a variety of special requirements which Todd arranged without hesitation. Todd made the whole experience so positive that limiting within a few hours was simply icing on the cake.... More

Todd did a great job accommodating a family of six which included two children 8 and 10 years old. My 10 year old caught a beautiful salmon with Todd's expert assistance on a trout rod not meant for a fish that big. He worked very hard to try to land more fish but luck was not on our side. Todd...

My buddy Brian and I went fishing with Todd, the owner/guide, for two days back in early August of 2015. Each of the days he and I caught 70+ various salmon!! We had an awesome time with catch and release. This year we are booking four days of fishing, but planning on taking fish back with us! Todd is an... More

I planned this trip for my dad and 12 year old son monthes before our trip. Todd called me after I sent an email to give me information which impressed me from the start. We knew early June wasn't salmon season yet but my son wasn't disappointed with his catch. A great guide, very knowledgeable and an all around enjoyable... More

We were 6 adults who had planned this fishing trip with Todd the owner if Fishbone Charters several months in advance. Had a great day on the river catching fish. Todd suggested we start out very early in the morning and that was a great call. The fish were biting even though we couldn't use bait since it was September... More

We had a great afternoon of fishing with Todd. We were scheduled to be in Talkeetna for one day for our Mt McKinley Glacier flight which got cancelled due to foggy weather - which seems to be common in Alaska! But last minute, Todd saved the day by taking us salmon fishing instead. We were a family of 5 with... More
