Float & Fly Fish for Trout In Alaska

Rainbow trout fly fishing in the Iliamna region where the trout naturally grow to 8 pounds or larger. Rainbows are caught June through September. However, due to the return of millions of sockeye in the month of July, the most productive rainbow fishing is in the months of June, August, and September. We are located in the Bristol Bay, Lake Iliamna region and access many of the famed rivers in the area such as the  Copper River which was just rated in the top 50 best trout streams in the world by Trout Unlimited.

Setting off on a fly fishing rafting expedition in remote Alaska means embarking on a journey of discovery. As you navigate down the winding waterways, you’ll witness the untouched beauty of the Alaskan wilderness, with its diverse wildlife and stunning vistas.

The unique aspect of fly fishing from a raft lies in the ability to access remote locations that would otherwise be inaccessible by foot or conventional fishing methods. The raft serves as your mobile fishing platform, allowing you to explore different stretches of rivers, target various fishing holes, and adapt to the ever-changing conditions. Whether you prefer casting from the raft itself or wading into the shallows, each moment presents an opportunity to test your angling skills against the native fish that inhabit these waters.

As you cast your line into the crystal-clear streams, the thrill of the chase begins. Alaska’s rivers teem with an array of sought-after fish species, including the mighty Chinook salmon, prized for its size and strength, as well as the acrobatic coho salmon, the elusive steelhead trout, and the colorful arctic char. With every cast, you anticipate the exhilarating moment when a fish strikes, feeling the adrenaline surge through your veins as you engage in a battle of wills and skill. It is this perfect fusion of sport and nature that makes fly fishing via rafting in remote Alaska an unforgettable experience.

Beyond the fishing itself, the rafting journey offers a chance to disconnect from the demands of modern life and immerse yourself in the raw beauty of Alaska’s wilderness. Camping under the starry skies, sharing stories around a crackling campfire, and falling asleep to the sounds of nature are all part of the experience. This expedition provides not only the thrill of the catch but also an opportunity to connect with the essence of Alaska, to appreciate its unspoiled landscapes, and to cultivate a deep sense of awe and respect for the untamed wonders of the Last Frontier.
