Kwethluk River Float Fishing Trips
July 1st - September 30th
One of Alaska's best rivers that encompasses all that it is: big, beautiful, & remote! An Alaska float fishing trip best suited for 8-10 day trips, the Kwethluk starts high in the Kilbuck Mountains where we land on tundra and begin our descent down river. This float fishing trip is unique in that you get two rivers in one! We start on a small creek that is easily wade-able & full of Rainbows & Grayling that eagerly look to feed on the surface. A truly amazing small creek experience not found in many other places. Down river at the confluence, the Kwethluk becomes larger and is a great place to practice swing presentations or throw streamers at the banks as our experience takes you down secret braids to stalk monster Leopard Bow's as well as all five species of Salmon & Arctic-Char depending on the time of year. We recommend this series of rivers from the first of July through the second week of September. King fishing is incredible in July (season depending on ADF&G regulations) with Chum Salmon and Arctic-Char entering the system and of course native Bows. If stalking huge silvers and flesh eating Rainbows is your kind of thing, or if that sounds like you want it to be your kind of thing, then the dates are mid-August through September.
The adventure begins by leaving Bethel in a wheeled bush plane. We fly high to the mountains and land on Alaskan tundra where our journey begins as we float a 100 miles of wild river down to our pickup. We are met by large power boats that transport us down to the Kuskowim and back to Bethel.
Pricing for this river varies on length of trip, call for details.
The gear boat deluxe special is an additional boat & guide that accompanies you down the river to stay one step ahead preparing hot meals, hors d'oeurve's , & setting up camp ahead of you, your guide, & the rest of the group. In addition we provide one night of fresh Alaskan King Crab to add to your Alaskan trip of a lifetime as well as an additional cold cooler to keep your beverages extra frosty. Cost of this upgrade varies from river to river based on trip logistics. Call us for more details!
