Booking an expert angler for an adventure, is an exciting way to see Salmon in their natural Saltwater or Freshwater habitat. How to find dependable salmon fishing guides can be a little more tricky though.
Don't be surprised to catch massive Chinook or Coho and even a Halibut when you have someone who knows what they're doing, all while having the opportunity to take in the beautiful ocean scenery and possibly even spot a whale or pod of dolphins porpoising out of the water, but get someone who doesn't and is ill-prepared and you could find yourself never going again - and we don't want that!
Guides have risen in popularity over the past 20 years and for those who don't have a large amount of time to become masters of the craft of fishing, anglers such as Steelhead fishing guides can be often the only way an in-experienced Steelheader will ever catch one of these illusive species of fish. These guides usually target anglers (guests) who are not afraid to do a little work to make their catch, where Chinook Salmon guides are usually willing to do a little more given the fact that these fish are more abundant and usually easier to catch.
King Salmon guides are not just found on the deep blue sea though! If you look further into these exciting expeditions of fishing adventures, you'll easily run into many other fishing excursions to possibly take part in such as Coho / Silver Salmon fishing charters and Sturgeon fishing guides, that are found on freshwater rivers and streams that can be equally or sometimes more exciting than an ocean adventure!
Both ocean fishing and river fishing have their benefits and the one that first comes to mind is the fact that river fishing is usually easier access, cheaper and easier on someone who gets sea sickness at simply the idea of rollers on the great big sea. When I think of benefits of ocean fishing I think of freshness of fish, abundance, beauty of the ocean and the fact that you have opportunities to catch other fish like cod, halibut and various pacific salmon all in the same trip.
If you can get expert Sockeye / Red or Halibut fishing guidance that specializes in catching one type of fish species with the possibility of catching others you'll always come home with something and these types of mentors are usually a great bargain if you're in it for something specific. Usually these guides are really good at their craft.

Soon you'll be able to find fishing guides / charters by region right here if you are planning to stay close to home or travel somewhere specific. Just don't forget to tell em' who sent ya!
