Todd Kingery has some excellent reviews on Trip Advisor; however, our experience with Todd almost cost us our “once in a lifetime” experience in Alaska. For our 65th birthdays, myself along with three close high school friends booked with Todd for a 2-day charter July...More

Todd is probably a good guide based on the Tripadvisor reviews. However, I am unable to comment on this, since he lost track of our reservation (despite numerous emails and a $600 deposit) made months ago. So, on the night before we were supposed to...More

You won't go wrong booking Todd for a trip on the river. He put us on fish and gave us helpful pointers on how to catch them. I'd fish with him again!!!

Went on a half day Salmon fishing trip with Todd. Todd is an excellent guide and wants to put you on some fish to catch. The thing about Fishbone is that you are fishing and not using the techniques of other guides on the river....More

Todd is the guy to put you on the fish and unlike some other guides in Talkeetna, you actually CATCH the fish with Todd, you don't snag them. Much more fun and sporting.

Everyone in our group of four landed a king salmon and hooked several more that got off the line before we could get them to the net. Todd provided all the gear we needed and put us on the fish.
