Gary and Val Early have provided exceptional fishing for their guests for 35 years and counting. Fishing the famous Pacific Northwest streams for chinook and steelhead from Fall through Spring and then fishing Alaska's Kenai Peninsula all summer long has established them as a couple of the most knowledgeable and successful guides in both locations. Featured on such TV shows as "Fishing The West" and "Northwest Outdoors," they've earned their reputations through hard work and a keen sense of knowing how to succeed even during challenging conditions.
Through years of experience and our longevity in this profession we have obtained permits* for several exclusive areas on the rivers we fish. These limited permits* allow anglers an opportunity to fish all areas and not be restricted to the more crowded sections.In accordance with Federal law and US Department of Agriculture (USDA) policy, this institution is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex (in education and training programs and activities), age, disability, or retaliation. (Not all prohibited bases apply to all programs).
