Owner/Head Guide David Lisi
Cooper Landing, Alaska is David's home where he is a fishing guide and trout bum. On any given day, you will most likely find Dave on the banks of the Kenai swinging for trout with his best friend and girlfriend, Jackie. Dave spent most days of his youth wading the waters of upstate New York fishing for smallmouth bass, muskie, pike and walleye. His journey to Alaska was sparked by a chance fishing trip on the Salmon River in New York with Mike Harpe, a legendary guide on the Kenai River. After the fishing day was done, Mike invited Dave to Alaska to fish the mighty Kenai River. At that time, Dave thought fishing Alaska was a pipe dream and didn’t arrive in Alaska until several years later to take Mike up on his offer. Once in Alaska, Dave fell in love with the Kenai’s mystical waters and the amazing fishing opportunities. He began his guiding career almost immediately and found a place to call home. Cooper Landing Fishing Guide, LLC was built in early 2017 with the goal of sharing the love and passion Dave and Jackie have for the Kenai Peninsula and the fish that live there.

Owner/Associate Head Guide Jackie Bowman
Whether it be the rivers and lakes of Wisconsin where she was born and raised, the waters of Briston Bay and creeks of Southwest Alaska where she fell in love with the state or her current locale overlooking the Kenai River, water has always been home for Jackie. An avid fly fisherwoman and conservationist, she strives to inspire passion for both, particularly related to anadromous fish species.
