Our Aniak River Hosted Week history

Aniak River rainbows

Larry started hosting trips on the Aniak in 2006, and we’ve since hosted up to eight weeks a year here. There are few places in Alaska where you can catch numbers of rainbows, silvers, dollies, and grayling along with an occasional sheefish and northern pike. Our clients have landed over 50 rainbows in the 20” to 30” range a day. The Aniak is one of Alaska’s best rivers because of its variety of species and the sheer number of fish you’ll catch.
It helps that this river is comparatively undiscovered. You’ll see very few anglers.

Aniak Accommodations

Aniak River Boats

You’re guided here with two anglers per jet boat and guide.
Aniak River Lodge is now an Orvis-Endorsed Fly-Fishing Lodge. The Lodge is the only fixed camp operation on the Aniak. 15 x 30 WeatherPort tents with full-size beds and nice bedding, a heater, a toilet, a shower, and a sink with hot running water. A generator is in camp for charging camera batteries. Two anglers per tent, guide, and boat.

Silver Fishing:  Our clients have landed over 100 silvers in one day. Silvers are best here from August 10th through September 1st. This is also a great time for beautiful leopard rainbow, grayling, char, and a few sheefish. Aniak rainbow fishing may be Alaska’s best.
