Alaska Float Trips
Overnight Fish & Float Trips
Remote rivers available for a great fish and float trip
Clear Creek is a small creek flowing out of Denali State Park. Beautiful gin clear water offers some great fishing for trophy Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, and Grayling. King Salmon fishing is not allowed on upper Clear Creek. After July 14th you can fish for the other 4 species of pacific salmon. This is a short 30 mile stretch of water that is easily wadeable for most anglers. I will walk the boat behind you for long stretches of water.
Clear Creek can be floated anywhere between 1-7 days, price is $600 per person per day. The more days spent on Clear Creek the further upstream we get dropped in via Helicopter. Price includes Helicopter flights to the upper stretches of the creek. June 20th-Sept 15th.
Moose Creek is a small clear water stream that offers excellent rainbow trout fishing in the spring. Grayling, and Northern Pike are also abundant in this 35+ mile stretch of class 1 water, but the Rainbows up to 28 inches are what we’re here for.
This river is floated in 6 days and 5 nights and the cost is $2600 per person. Includes Float Plane back to Talkeetna after the trip. The time frame for Moose Creek is between May 15th and June 20th.
From its headwaters at the base of Mt McKinley, to the Yentna River, Lake Creek is a 54 mile stretch of water that will never be forgotten. All five species of Pacific Salmon enjoy this river as their spawning grounds. Rainbow Trout and Arctic Grayling grow big in these waters because of the ample food supplies. This is a great river to float if you’re looking for a combination of Salmon and Trout. Spectacular scenery and some class 3-4 rapids will keep you busy between releasing fish.
This trip takes 6 days and 5 nights and the cost is $3500 per person. Includes Float plane to and from Talkeetna. I like to float Lake Creek anytime between June 15th and September 15th. A 3 day 2 night trip on lower Lake Creek can be done for $1895 per person.
