OP Guide Rec

A friend and I are going to take a trip from Alaska to the OP during March 18-22 and can’t find a guide that is available during those dates. Any suggestions for guides or driftboat/raft rentals around Forks?

Thanks in advance,

Another plug for Mark Shamburg. You’ll be swinging flies all day if that’s your thing. Solid guy and I’ve had amazing days on the water with him.

Sorry for the late follow up response and thank you for the suggestions. Seems like a lot of the trips were hosted or wanted lodge commitments. We have reached out to a few people and are waiting for responses but we are still not booked with anyone. Hopefully one of the leads will pan out when they get back to us. Again sorry for the late reply as I’m at work out of town and have been really busy.

Thanks everyone,
