The Gulkana River
As a “National Wild and Scenic River” the Gulkana can be enjoyed by fishermen and non-fishermen alike. It
offers a great wilderness experience for folks of all ages! This scenic float trip covers almost 50 miles of river.
After crossing Paxson Lake on the south side of the Alaska
Range, the first 3 miles are shallow and rock class II rapids. At
the confluence of the Middle Fork, the river
begins meandering 15 miles through spruce
forests and rolling hills – home to moose,
black and grizzly bear, caribou, beaver,
eagles, and waterfowl. At river mile 18, a
canyon begins as we approach the Canyon
Rapids, commonly known as “The Falls.” A
short, well maintained portage allows us to transport some gear around the Class III-IV
rapids. The next eight miles are rocky with fast Class II water and the last 18 miles are
generally Class I waters. In this lower section, it is not uncommon to see as many as 75
bald eagles perched in the spruce and poplar trees lining the river.
King Salmon Expeditions:
Flowing south out of the massive Alaska Range the Wild and Scenic Gulkana
River, is home to Interior Alaska’s most famous King and Sockeye Salmon
fishery! Guests can experience the power of the mighty King Salmon on
either spin or fly-fishing gear. These fish average 25-35 pounds of pure
excitement!

Our Gulkana King Salmon Adventures get you away from the crowds and into
the fish! Beginning in early June and ending July 19, we are able to offer only a
few King Salmon Adventures each season and group size is limited, so advance
reservations are necessary to secure your dates with the mighty Gulkana Kings.
Rainbow Round Up – “Trout Expedtions”:
Late summer and fall fishing on the Gulkana is not to be missed! Our
Rainbow Round-up is one of Alaska’s “best kept secrets” in terms of quality
rainbow fishing and lack of crowds! The best fishing for Trophy Rainbow
Trout is late July through September with the biggest ‘Bows caught from midAugust through September. Rainbows over 20 inches are common and some reach sizes up to the 30 inch
range!! The thousands of spawning Chinook and Sockeye Salmon have brought these large Rainbows and the
Arctic Grayling in for the action. Most of the take is from drift fishing flies in egg or leach patterns floating over
the most productive water.
Aside from big rainbows and arctic grayling, sockeye salmon are still in the river and are in great fighting
condition. If at all, other boaters are rarely seen. Bald eagles are abundant and the Nelchina Caribou Herd has
begun its annual migration through this country. The fall colors provide an impressive background for photos
with your trophy fish while the cool air has brought some relief from the long hours of the midnight sun. If you
don’t want crowds, but you do want great fishing, come see us for our Rainbow Round-up in late August and
September.

The „Tal“ - Talachulitna River
Reachable within a 50min waterplane flight northwest of Anchorage the Talachulitna offers world class remote
salmon fishing (all 5 species of pacific salmon) at a very affordable price. This river is famous for its mighty
king salmon (June/July) and strong silver salmon run starting late July until September.
Our float will begin at Judd Lake, down the Talachulitna Creek,
and finally into the Talachulitna River. Long stretches of class I
and II water are absolutely perfect for float fishing. An exciting
whitewater section of class III-IV also offers some rafting action
and a fun change while fishing the plentiful salmon pools and the
many tributaries flowing into the „Tal“.
Besides the many opportunities to catch silver salmon averaging
12-15lbs, you will also find
many chum-, pink-, and redsalmon. The Talachulitna was also Alaskas‘ first river to have a catch and
release restriction for rainbow trout. As a result, besides Arctic char and
Arctic Grayling, a very healthy population of strong rainbow trout, sizes
up to 20-26“, will round up this fascinating fishing expedtion.
