The Alaska fishing season is relatively short. It revolves around the life cycle of the five species of Pacific salmon, which arrive in Alaska's rivers not only at different times but at periods that can vary from watershed to watershed.

This availability of the salmon, and whether they are pre-spawn, actively spawning, or post-spawn can strongly influence the behavior of resident species, the rainbow trout, grayling, and char, and their availability to anglers as they follow the life dance of the salmon.

This very availability and what the salmon are doing goes far to explain how a particular week one season can offer average fishing, yet the same week the next year or even week can be epic.

No matter when you are here, we will put you on the best fishing holes, one after another, all day long as you present your hook to fish from one of our custom built inflatables or while wading, and while doing so experience the whole of the rivers we float, rather than just a few miles from a lodge.

So, which trip is right for you? Just ask, and we will use our years of experience to help select the trip that best fits your group's interests and desires.
