Your Guide – Joe Bowen
I have been fishing in some part of the world my entire life. Starting out as a kid fishing farm ponds for Bass and pan fish in Kentucky to guiding in Alaska over 40 years later, I have been involved in many aspects of sports fishing.
Twenty years ago I came to Alaska to try its legendary fishing and I have been hooked ever since.
In the following the years I have guided for Salmon and Halibut around Glacier Bay Alaska, on rivers and salt water in Western Alaska and in Washington and Oregon for Salmon, trout and Steelhead.
Several years ago I came to Ketchikan and I fell in love with the community and its easy access to world class Salmon, Halibut and bottom fishing.
I am a licensed Coast Guard merchant marine officer and have current Red Cross first aid and CPR training.
I love guiding; one of my biggest thrills is to see newcomers catch their first fish in Alaska -or maybe their first fish ever!
