Andersons Alaska Salmon Camp Staff
Kent is the owner/operator of Anderson’s Outdoors and one of the Best King Salmon Fishing Guides You Will Ever Meet. Kent has been guiding anglers since 1995, beginning on the Kenai River as a guide for Alaska Wildland Adventures. In 2004 an opportunity presented itself to partner with a new lodge and build a new operation on the Nushagak River. In 2008, Kent purchased the operation and renamed it to its current name, Anderson’s Outdoors-Alaska Salmon Camp. Kent also owns/operates Anderson’s Outdoors guiding steelhead anglers in Oregon during the months of Feb, March and April and also works as a freelance guide for other Alaska lodges, most recently Togiak River Lodge during the silver salmon season. Kents off season hobbies include hunting, hiking, mountain biking and brewing beer while spending as much time as possible with his very understanding wife and 5 yr old daughter who reside in Reno NV.
