Based out of Rockport, Washington, in the foothills of the beautiful and majestic North Cascades, John's Guide Service is here to offer you the ultimate fishing, hunting or scenic river float experience.

As a full-time, second generation guide with almost twenty years of full time guiding experience, owner John Koenig is no stranger to the Pacific Northwest hunting and fishing scene. John has access to some of the best fishing and hunting Washington State has to offer right out his back door and sharing that lifelong love of the great outdoors with others at all ages and experience levels is what he's all about.

Living within walking distance of the Sauk River and the world famous Skagit River, John has access to some of the best fishing Washington State has to offer. He guides anglers not only on his home waters of the Sauk and Skagit River, but also the most productive rivers in the Pacific Northwest, including the Olympic Peninsula, for all five Salmon species, Steelhead, Sturgeon, Dolly Varden, and Trout. John's guided fishing trips last approximately six to eight hours offering both gear and fly fishermen (and women) the best opportunities available throughout the year.
Traveling in style and comfort from one of John's boats, all gear, bait, tackle, instruction and sense of humor is provided for your trip.

While John has an impressive selection of gear for your use from the absolute best names in the industry during you're guided fishing trip he considers his most significant asset to be his exemplary customer service.

John's Guide Service also offers guided archery and modern firearm hunts in the foothills of the North Cascades (less than a 2 hour drive North of Seattle), offering ample opportunities at Black Bear, Black-tail Deer, Mule Deer, White-tail Deer, Ruffed and Blue Grouse, Waterfowl and more.

Here, deep in the famed evergreen forests and on the misty banks of the local watersheds, game thrive in some of the most beautiful habitat in the United States.
Whether it's an afternoon of grouse hunting, or a full out black bear adventure, John is committed to getting you up close and personal with your desired harvest species. When not out on the water guiding fishing trips John takes the time to regularly scout all of the areas he guides hunts on all year long. Simply put, there's no one else in the Northern Puget Sound area who guides these woods better.

If you enjoy both hunting and fishing why not try a "Cast and Blast"? This all day adventure combines goose and duck hunting with some of the best winter steelhead fishing in the state.

Just looking for a change of scenery? The Skagit River, which John calls home, is a federally designated Wild and Scenic River and boasts the largest population of wintering Bald Eagles in the lower 48 states, making it a great location for a scenic float.

John is state and USCG licensed, fully insured and first aid and CPR trained and certified. John's Guide Service also operates under a USFS permit on the Skagit River System for fishing trips and in the North Cascades while guiding hunts.

With all this in mind, from beginner to experienced, from gear fisherman to fly fisherman (and women), from bow hunter to rifle hunter, or just an outdoor enthusiast, John provides you with the quality experience you should expect from a professional guide service.
