My 15 year old son, Tyler and I had our first experience drift boat fishing and I’m sure glad we went with Mario. He was super patient, fun, good teacher and not too intense–didn’t get disappointed with our repeated mistakes. Tyler caught his first salmon and the day was as beautiful as it could get on the Klamath. Highly recommend him and I can’t wait to go back for another trip.

I have gone out with Mario several times now and each time is better than the previous. He is professional, knowledgeable, patient, personable and clearly loves his job! Mario strives to make the experience enjoyable and memorable. Every time I have gone out, we fish a different river and have always been successful. Can’t wait for the next trip! Words of wisdom, don’t bring bananas on the boat while salmon fishing.

First, you are wasting your time fishing the Klamath without an outfitter. And Mario has this river wired. He knows the holes and seams to hit and sets the boat up for the best presentation. His equipment is top quality. In 2 days fishing we had 42 steelhead caught and released. A few 1/2 pounders, but most ranged 3 to 10 pounds. Can’t even count how many bites and hook up but lost we had. Ad to this, Mario is just one heck of a nice guy. Plus, he is willing to share his knowledge. I definitely plan a return trip.

Mario is a great guide and person, highly recommend. The fishing is stellar, he has great equipment, and it’s beautiful out there! If you are staying multiple nights, plan on bbq or camp style food where ever you stay. The one restaurant in town makes great pizza and recommend going there for dinner.

INCREDIBLE!! It was the best fishing trip I have taken in years. My wife booked a trip for my son and I with Bobby Gomez of Ironhead Guide Service and it went above and beyond anything I was expecting. We lost count of the number of fish we pulled in after we hit 25. Bobby was great and it was obvious he has fished this river his whole life. I plan on making this a yearly tradition for my son and I, thank you for the fantastic memories.

We just returned from our fishing trip on the Klamath with Ironhead Guide Service, and it was nothing short of incredible! Mario and his team are absolutely fantastic guides. They knew exactly where to go and how to fish. Even as an amateur fisher, I caught the biggest salmon of the day! I’m hooked (no pun intended) – I will be back!

I had a great day out on the Klamath river with Mario. Not even 5 minutes in and we were getting bites. I ended the day with more fish (Steelhead and Rainbow Trout) than I’ve ever caught in a single day in my life. His boat and equipment were top notch, and Mario himself is quite genial and it shows he LOVES to fish and especially help other people catch fish too. I’m definitely coming back.

Mario took me steelhead fishing on the Klamath last month. It was non stop action the entire day and we didn’t see any other boats. Scenery was amazing. When he knew there were fish in a whole, he would motor or row back up as many times as necessary until the bite stopped. He’s a great guy. Grew up right there so he knows every inch of that river. I’ll fish with him again for sure.

Oh my gosh! The best time ever! Caught my first fish at 50 years old, a beautiful steelhead on the Klamath. Ben was great and the day zipped by. I will definitely be back! I have told everyone how great it was!
