When conditions are right from mid-July to mid-September, the Aniak can can offer exceptional angling for rainbow trout, all five species of Pacific Salmon, Arctic char, grayling and even Northern pike in the lower river
Most of the streams of Southwest Alaska run crystal clear, including the Aniak during good weather, but we are talking optimal conditions, and thats when things on the Aniak can be exciting, ok things can get exciting with less than optional weather but for different reasons. This is not the river for the inexperienced or those looking for an easy float, however the rewards can be exceptional!
Our Aniak river float trips begin in Bethel Alaska with a flight to Aniak lake.
Plan to arrive in Bethel the evening before your trips start date and just in case, it's also best to leave a little wiggle room on the other end of your trip as well and plan on departing from Bethel the day after your trips end date. Bethel is served by 737 jet service from Anchorage by Alaska Airlines.
Upon booking additional information about your trip will be sent to you including where to stay in Bethel and any further relevant information.
