These camps are permanently based on their respective rivers, and you will fish this river exclusively during your stay. These few exceptional camps are located on truly spectacular rivers. The size of the river and the variety of available species offers a wide diversity of fishing opportunities during the entire season. The operations I represent are on a few of the truly exceptional Alaskan rivers. It could take you many years to find, fish, and quantify these few fly fishing world gems.

Float Trips

There are a few rivers in Alaska that offer tremendous week-long or longer float trips. Guided trips of this nature are an extraordinary wilderness experience in the most remote areas of Alaska. My floaters offer very comfortable camping along the rivers, great food and friendliness, guides with many years of experience on the river, great equipment, and of course, spectacular fishing.
