Welcome to Bear Creek Outfitters

Arne President and Co-Owner

A 4th generation Alaskan, Arne has experienced the best the state has to offer. Growing up between his family's home on Douglas Island and their cabin on the Taku River, Arne began fishing as soon as he could walk. Although he has fished from Costa Rica to Australia, nothing can compare to fishing here in Alaska. After a short stint in the "Lower 48," where he earned an Accounting degree in Oregon, Arne returned to Alaska pursue his love of flying. The ability to land a plane on remote water and fish will never seem novel. With more than 17 years of bush plane piloting experience, Arne is at home in the air or on the water.

Holly Vice President and Co-Owner

With roots as a "Buckeye," Holly crossed the country in 1991 to experience college in Alaska... and an Alaskan was born. After attending college in Sitka, she was bitten by the travel bug and signed on as a Shore Excursion Manager for Holland America Line. Five years, two world cruises and 43 countries later the call of Alaska was too much to resist. Holly returned to Southeast Alaska as an employee/owner of  Wings Airways & The Taku Glacier Lodge.

Matt Boline, Manager 

Growing up in Minnesota with a deep love and appreciation for the outdoors it's no wonder Matt ended up in Alaska. After exploring much of what the Land of the Lakes has to offer Matt moved to Juneau to attend college and the exploring never stopped. With his equally adventurous family much of their quality time is spent fishing, hunting, and camping trips throughout Southeast Alaska.
