Nathaniel was born in Minnesota but raised in the mountains of North East Shasta County in Northern California.

Nathaniel has a huge passion and respect for the outdoors. Many of his favorite childhood memories come from how his father patiently taught him how to fish, row a boat, and survive in the wilderness.

Nathaniel has spent several years in Alaska and recently enjoyed 2 years as a first mate on a Salmon/Halibut boat on the Kenai Peninsula and has his OUPV captains license.

Nathaniel is an accomplished fly fisherman, spey fisherman, and  dry/nymph fly fisherman.

Nathaniel Kynct is our youngest guide that has been guiding for six years now and shown not only great fishing skills, but excellent guide and people skills. When Nathaniel isn’t guiding he is either tying flies, or fly fishing in his Clackacraft with his wife and excellent Fly gal Maiya Best.
