"May 5th, 2015, low water, very little rain for an Alaskan spring. I had Allen as my guide. Low stained water didn't stop his ability to put me on fish! Largest fly rainbow in 4 years. Largest fly Dollie as well. When it shut down early we went back to re-fish a few runs, that doesn't happen with any other guide I've used here in AK. He was very focused on trying multiple patterns, tough day to fish turned into a great time. Highly recommended."

"I had one day left to fly fish an Alaskan river for rainbows. Phantom River Charters arranged a guided trip up into one of the smaller feeder streams with Nico as my guide. Nico put me on lunker bows immediately and for the duration of the trip. I can tell you he is one terrific guide, knowledgable and very professional, and one of the best I have had in some 50plus years of fly fishing. I recommend Phantom Charters without reservation."

"Guide was terrible. Loaded the boat up with people 6 people fishing on one boat. No one even caught a fish in 5 hours. Guide had no idea what he was doing. Go with another fishing group if you want to catch fish. Worst day of fishing ever."

"We booked a Silver Salmon Fishing trip on August 9, 2014, our first to Alaska. This was an outstanding experience. Our young guide, Allen was so knowledgeable and helpful that it made the fishing trip a pleasure. Not just because we did very well with respects to the Silvers. We will definitely book another trip in the future and will hopefully get Allen again. He really went out of his way to make sure that everything was taken care of. Rhett & Margo were also excellent host's. This is a first class operation (Boats, equipment & personnel)."

"37 years in Alaska, we have used a number of drop off services; safe, knowledgeable captains that provide dependable pickups regardless of the day’s challenge; these are the primary deliverables: These are the key factors Phantom has consistently provided us on every trip.Thorough briefings, detailed inquiries about the traveler’s in-country plans, destinations, return routes, and communication abilities provide a solid base of operations through which unforeseen events could be managed.Strongly recommended for cheechako and sourdough alike."
