Alex Ermatinger grew up fishing in Northern Michigan for Salmon and Steelhead, which sparked his lifelong passion for fishing and being in the outdoors. He 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 to pursue guiding full time. Alex now splits his time guiding trout in Colorado, Salmon/Steelhead in Michigan, and big game hunts in Nebraska and Colorado.
