ABOUT YOUR GUIDE

ALEX ERMATINGER

Alex grew up fishing in Northern Michigan for Salmon and Steelhead, which sparked his lifelong passion for fishing and being in the outdoors.

Alex attended Northern Michigan University and received his BS in Environmental Science and Biology. After working in Chemical Engineering and then Pharmaceutical Research, he realized that his true calling was to be a fishing guide. In 2017, he decided to make a career switch and moved to the Western Slope of Colorado, guiding his first year with the Smith Fork Ranch before moving to the Gunnison River to guide for Gunnison River Expeditions. To book a fishing trip with Gunnison River Expeditions visit: GunnisonRiverExpeditions.com

In the late fall Alex spends his time guiding big-game hunts with Waterdog Outfitters, LLC. Waterdog is a first-class hunting outfitter that specializes in trophy Mule Deer and Elk. Ask Alex about booking a trip today!

Alex returns to Michigan each September to chase salmon on remote stretches of Northern Michigan rivers, guiding on the same rivers that he grew up fishing.

Alex did an amazing job helping us learn and was abundantly patient with my son.  Alex got my son hooked up with a 20+pounder and they successfully landed it.  We caught several fish and taught us plenty.  You can’t go wrong with Alex as your guide!!!  Gracious, patient, considerate, well-equipped, always smiling, and very knowledgeable.

Our all day trip included an extremely skilled and knowledgeable guide Alex along with his companion dog, appropriate equipment and a wonderful shore lunch. Alex thought about everything and it was easy enough to learn fly fishing and enjoy the day. It was the most perfect of days with just the right amount of action and relaxation… and I even caught my first King Salmon!

This was my first fishing experience, Alex was very patient and taught well while keeping everything really fun! The lunch was so perfectly prepared while I was able to keep fishing, they day was absolutely worth it! I went home with a 30lb salmon and cant wait to book again next year!

The greatest catch of a lifetime (besides my husband) a 31 lb fresh male King Salmon. The day included a scenic river float, scrumptious meal on the bank, and relaxing until bam! Fish on!! and the chaos of the fight begins!! Alex is extremely knowledgeable of the area and fishing in general, and just an all-around great guy. It won’t be the one that got away with Alex there for sure! We have success every trip out with Alex. Looking forward to going again!

We had an absolute blast. Alex knows where the fish are and is amazing at teaching you how to catch them. I had never fly fished before jumping in the boat and wasn’t even sure id be able to do it. I’ve been on 20+ salmon trips and that was the best trip I’ve ever had.
