I would like to thank Captain Ken Strimple for the most unique fishing charter I've ever been on. On November 8, 2009 Captain Ken took myself and my cousin Gary on a hike with back packs down to the Genesee river gorge.  He then inflated a small raft and brought us over to a destination only accessible by boat. It was a gorgeous day and  we were there looking to catch King Salmon and Steelhead Trout.  There was a beautiful Rainbow above us that was created by the sun glistening off the mist of the huge waterfall which was only twenty yards away. The fishing started out slow; the fish were just not in the mood to bite the conventional bait (Salmon Eggs). This is when Kens' expertise came into play; he had us try out a few different lures he thought might work and sure enough within 20 minutes we were onto a pattern that was really working.  I landed a 43" King Salmon that took almost ten minutes to land and just a few minutes later Gary also caught a 42" King. I finished the day catching Four Kings and One Steelhead. I had an absolute blast since I had never caught a salmon before!  Gary also caught four Kings.  Needless to say Gary and I were completely satisfied with our experience with Lets Catch Fish and Captain Ken Strimple. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
