Kenton Bansemer

Having grown up in the area I not only have a deep passion for our watersheds, but also the fish and wildlife that inhabit them. I am a second generation guide and love having the opportunity to help individuals learn about the river and ecosystems that I am fortunate enough to spend my time on. I run our lodge Gold River Lodge on the lower Klamath, and guide year around.
