Meet Our Stoney River Staff

Joe Mott

Guiding for Stoney River Lodge both spring & fall hunters continuously since 1986, as well as fishermen for the past several seasons.

Joe is always on staff if Stoney River Lodge has clients. 

Mike Knapp

Guided our clients continuously since 1994.

Mike does it all. Trapper and animal control specialist.

Mike lives to be outdoors and lives to hunt. We regularly get comments from his hunters about what a hard hunter he is.

Mike always finds game, he is “Iron Man” of the tundra.

Mitch Hale

Every season since 2003 Mitch brings a lot to Stoney River Lodge. Several top quality well equipped beautifully maintained airplanes, a ton (14,000+ hours) of off airport bush flying experience, a keen eye for places to safely land where nobody else ever has and a totally “can do” attitude. An accomplished licensed aircraft mechanic and inspector as well as licensed assistant guide.

Bryce Johnson

He is always hunting, guiding, trapping or fishing with SRL clients or family.

Bryce started guiding our hunters in 2008 with a ton of hunting experience and has never looked back.

He seldom has a hunter with unfilled tags at end of hunt. Repeat hunters that he has guided typically request him as guide.
