Trip Dates - September 6 to the 13th
Goodnews River Saving the best for last. By now our Western Alaska Crew has seen this river as many as five times this season, and the anticipation of this final float on the News has been building with every passing week. The Char fishing will be in it's prime, the Rainbow Trout will be hammering everything from beads, to streamers to mice, and the Coho will be everywhere, hitting everything and almost anything you throw at them.. These are true campfire tales type of trips, given that by now we have those wondrous Fall Alaskan nights, with the possibility of Northern Lights and nothing winds down an epic day quite like a popping driftwood fire. The longer nights mean shorter days, and as the season winds down, the fishing inevitably ramps up for resident species gorging themselves with calories for the impending long winter.

The Seasons Final Hurrah in SW Alaska. September 10th to 17 or 19 A truly epic time of year, and a truly epic trip. The banks are littered with the spawned out carcasses of the seasons salmon runs, snow is teasing the mountain peaks, each morning holds the possibility of skims of ice along the shoreline, the once lush green leaves of summer are now golden, fluttering reminders that winter is almost here. What better time to target big, slashing Rainbow Trout who are making their final push to saturate themselves with fat before being locked under the ice for months and months? Late season Coho will still be present, milling in sloughs and deep holes, ready to charge your streamer, or lunge into the air after a pollywog. Our last trip of the season out west is one that never disappoints, and always leaves us and our guests in awe of the fishing, the river, and all it's environment.
Kanektok Style trip from Bethel, Alaska. This trip can be eight or ten days in length.
Moraine Creek / Alagnak Combo Trip
Trip Dates - September 17 to 26 There Are Two Spaces Available
Much 'quieter' in the fall then earlier in the season when the Moraine can be crowded by Alaska standards at this time the Moraine has become a haven for Anglers wanting to get in on the fattest fish of the year, at a time when many of the lodges have closed up and gone home for the season! This is when the Moraine offers up excellent numbers of very fat "Wild" Alaska Rainbows that have been gorging all season making it a true "World Class" Fly Fishing destination! Weather can be a bit iffy but if you hit this one right it can be well worth the trip. After four days it's off to the braids of the Alagnak to chase silver salmon and more fat rainbow fior the remainder of the trip.
