Your Goodnews River float fishing trip offers exceptional scenery, high wilderness values and did we mention the fishing?

By the time mid July gets here there are already a healthy number of Rainbow Trout, Arctic Grayling, King, Sockeye, Chum, Pink Salmon and the occasional Northern Pike available as the month wears on, the Goodnews sees an influx of Arctic Char/Dolly Varden (affectionately referred to as "Charlies!") and Coho (Silver) Salmon in epic numbers begin their return to the Goodnews.

In the gin clear waters of the Goodnews it is common to see a literal biomass of fish that span the channel from bank to bank, and nose to tail as they move upriver from Bristol Bay and the Bering Sea.

Each day becomes a euphoric progression of hearty meals, amazing fishing, wildlife viewing, solitude, and the camaraderie of driftwood fires and the reliving of the days events. It is a veritable Never Never Land for the Fly Fishing Peter Pan in all of us, and all you need are your Happy Thoughts and a confirmed reservation

Getting There ... Your Goodnews river float trip starts and ends in the Kuskokwim river village of Bethel, Alaska.
