John Albrich

A fresh star on the horizon, guide John Albrich has paired up with fellow Pautzke pro staffer Toby Wyatt to form Reel Time Fishing. A diverse angler who has guided from Idaho to Washington and north to Alaska, Albrich specializes on salmon and steelhead, but has been know to sneak over to Dworshak Reservoir and nab kokanee from time to time. Normally, though, Albrich sticks to his home waters – the Clearwater and Snake River in Idaho- where he seems to own the salmon and steelhead. When coldwater fish aren’t in the system, Albrich switches rods and casts to smallmouth and sturgeon. He also guides on the Kenai river in Alaska for Chinook salmon during the summer.

Albrich has been a common face in the media in recent years. He spends time educating anglers at several Pacific Northwest sportsman shows, has been featured on the Klew News and Hawg Quest and is becoming a regular on Northwest Wild Country Radio. He’s also been in the Lewiston Morning Tribune.
