About our Company
Sappah & Son Guide Svc was started in 1991 and began
operations in the spring of 1992.
They are a family run business as the name implies, however Terry
runs one boat and Anna the other.
Where are the Sons you ask?
Well there are 3, the oldest is a 10 year Marine, the next works
construction in Anchorage and the last is only 15(Still
Anna now thinks the name should be changed to "Wife &
Sappah" but Terry is not buying it!
Since 1991 Sappah & Son has grown by leaps and bounds due
to hard work and repeat clientele coming back again and again to
enjoy the fishing on this world class river.
The Sappah's success rate is as good as any service on the
river. They try their best to insure that you have a fun and
productive fishing trip.
Sappah's believe those guides that live here provide a
much better service and besides why not support Alaskan families
so if you choose not to fish with us please select another
Alaskan resident guide.
