Running a 20ft Willie Predator, Dallas helps clients land trophy fish in her backyard. Her hometown of Kenai, features five species of salmon, world-class rainbow trout, while steelhead and grayling are just a few minutes away.
A life-long Alaskan, Dallas was raised in the town of Kenai after her family moved north when she was three. Growing up, almost every adventure she can remember revolved around fishing – exploring large rivers, small streams and the Cook Inlet. Her family not only found free time for sportfishing, but also took part in multiple commercial fisheries – gill netting for salmon, longlining for halibut and farming oysters.
As a teen, Dallas spent multiple summers working for a commercial-fish processing plant - Inlet Salmon - and three summers working for the Alaska Department of Fish & Game in Soldotna. Both part-time jobs helped prepare her for guiding the Kenai and understanding the fishing community as a whole.
A fly-fisherman at heart, Dallas is a member of organizations that aim to unite the angling community and bring new people to the sport – United Women on the Fly and Alaska Fly Fishers. Additionally, she helped host Fishing Tv's ‘World Fishing Day’ on June 23, 2018, which was broadcasted globally. She is a member of the Kenai River Professional Guide Association and an ambassador for Dryft Waders.
Dallas is married to fellow guide, Dustin. Together they have their son Blake and daughter, Andrea.
Dustin is a life-long Alaskan who grew up in Barrow, a town located above the Arctic Circle. After High School he attended the University of Alaska Anchorage and used every excuse to fish the Kenai and surrounding rivers between classes. After graduation, he landed a job as a professional fire fighter on the Kenai Peninsula giving himself ample time to fish. Using his flexible fire fighting schedule, Dustin is able to guide during the summer and fall months.
A member of the Kenai River Professional Guide Association, Dustin runs a 20ft North River Scout for kings, sockeye and silver salmon and, of course, rainbow trout.
