About your guides


Eric Loomis was born and raised in Quincy, Washington. He grew up on the family farm. During the off season he would duck hunt and salmon fish on the Columbia River. After high school and college, while doing custom farm work, he decided to start a guide business for duck hunting. Four years into guiding, he went on a vacation to Alaska. 

There were four people going on this vacation to Alaska, well one guy cancelled, and Eric was able to take his spot.  While in Alaska, he fished the Kenai River and Kasilof rivers for king salmon, and the Russian River for reds.  He also went on a fly out trip to Wolverine Creek, way back when they let you get out on the bank with all the bears!!!

When it was all said and done he decided that was the life for him. He went home, packed his stuff and drove up to begin his fishing guide adventure. 

Eric has never looked back. He loves Alaska and the Kenai river. Fishing for King salmon is his calling.

Kasey Loomis grew up in Oregon on the Burk family farm.  Number 3 of 4 girls, she always loved being outdoors.  After college, she had an opportunity to go to Alaska to work for a few months.  Well 14 years later she is still here.  In 2006 she started guided for a fly out charter company and moved to the Kenai River a couple years later.  She still likes to guide fly outs, but loves to fish the Kenai.
