Natalie was born and raised in Austin, Texas. As a young girl, she fell in love with fishing during her family’s summer vacations to Gustavus, Alaska. She first fished the Salmon River when she was around 5 years old and has done so every year of her life since. When she was 17, she decided to turn her love of fishing into a business and created Salmon River Sportfishing. Natalie’s favorite part about her job is meeting new people from around the world. She especially enjoys watching people catch their first fish. When Natalie is not fishing she enjoys mountain biking, paragliding, and traveling.
