Happy Valentine’s Day!

Guest Testimonial

We decided we wanted to go salmon fishing for our 50th wedding anniversary. We researched many lodges & we picked the Rivers Inlet Sportsman’s Club because it looked like the best one. It was the perfect spot. We could fish to our hearts content all day or do nothing. Naturally we fished a lot & amazed ourselves by catching salmon even when we ventured out on our own. The guides were very helpful & entertaining & the meals & accommodations were great. I felt very spoiled. Our boat was number 21 which is our anniversary day! Our table companions were very congenial. Our first floatplane trip & salmon fishing experience were unforgettable & we had a fantastic time.
Thanks to everyone.
