Q: Where are you located?
A: We are 75 miles NW of Anchorage on the
Talachulitna River. It’s about a 40 minute floatplane
flight out of Anchorage. There isn’t a road for 65 miles.
Helps cutback on the crowds you experience down south!
Q: What do your packages include?
A: Our all inclusive packages include fully guided fishing,
rods, reels and tackle, lodging, meals and we’ll also
fillet, freeze and vacuum pack your catch.
Q: What is not included in your packages?
A:The only thing not included in our packages is the floatplane
flight, fishing license and gratuities.
Q: How many fish can we harvest on the Talachulitna
A: During King season you are allowed to
keep 1 a day, for a total of 5 a year. During Sockeye, Silver,
Chums & Pink season you are allowed to be in possession
of 3 fish a day. Sometimes you are only allowed 2 Silvers
and 1 other species per day.
Q: How much fish can I take home with me?
A: Most of our clients will take home 50+lbs. of fish. The
airlines allow two 50lb pieces of luggage. We recommend you
bring one 50lb bag full of clothing etc. Then you purchase
a “airline approved fish box” and fill that with
50lb of fish. This becomes your 2nd piece of luggage. This
way you don’t have to pay anything additional to bring
your fish back with you.
Q: How much does the floatplane cost?
A: Approximately $225 roundtrip per person,
and we will schedule this flight for you!!!!
Q: How much is a fishing license?
A: Approx $30.00
Q: What kind of fish do you get?
A: We get all 5 species of Pacific Salmon
(Kings, Sockeye, Silver, Chum, Pinks), Rainbow Trout, Arctic
Grayling, and Dolly Varden.
Q: Do you get Steelhead?
A: No, not in our area
Q: When is the best time to go to the Talachulitna
A: Well, it depends on what you want to
fish for. We start booking for Kings mid June up until mid
July. Then about July 20th, we start booking for Sockeye,
Silvers, Chums, and Pinks. We get Rainbow Trout all summer
long, but Sept is the prime time for large Rainbows.
Q: Do you have a problem with the bears?
A: Not usually. We do have bears in our
area, but it’s nothing like fishing on the Russian or
Kenai. Usually if you see a bear, it’s going to be running
All of our guides carry firearms, so bear spray isn’t
necessary to bring.
