Dave Duncan and Sons run some of the best river camps in Alaska, and they have tapped into another winner. The Duncans have discovered remote coastal rivers with strong runs of steelhead and silver salmon. Their guests are the only anglers allowed to fish this special river. Six anglers per week.
Secret Alaska River
From Kodiak, you'll either take a floatplane or helicopter to this special little river. Remote coastal rivers with strong runs of wild steelhead, silver salmon, sockeye salmon, and dolly Varden.
Steelhead Fishing Facts:
2024 Season: August 24 to October 19. Guides: Top fly fishing guides. Methods: Fly fishing only. Walk and wade fishing only, so it's best if anglers are in good shape. No boats are used on these small rivers except to float guests out at the end of the week. Equipment: The guides supply rods, reels, and fly-tying materials. Fishing License: A 7-day non-resident Alaska fishing license is not included in the package $45.00 (2023).
A Lot of Hiking
The logistics of getting in and out of camp require air-dropping gear and supplies from a floatplane and then hiking into the camp from a nearby lake. You should be physically fit for this adventure. Although there will be great fishing around camp, at times, some of the best fishing can be found as far as one to two miles away.
Heated WeatherPort Tents
Heated WeatherPort tents on platforms with lighting and carpeted floors. You will need to bring your own sleeping bag.
