    We will be floating the Kwethluk River on Aug 2 to Aug 12. We have had a cancellation, and need to fill a spot. Total Cost - not including airfare from home to Bethel, AK, and back, will NOT EXCEED $1600. But if not a member of the club, you must join the club - cost is approx. $70.00
    The Kwethluk River provides an ultimately remote and untainted Alaska float trip, there are no lodges and no other commercial operations on the river. A Kwethluk River Alaska float trip begins with a DeHavilland Beaver flight from the community of Bethel 100 miles east to Boundary Lake. Skirting the edges of the Kilbuck Mountains, we find easily waded upper waters holding Dolly Varden and grayling. Soon we descend into a network of side channels, eddies, holes and salmon spawning beds that offer excellent fly fishing to Alaska rainbow trout (commonly 14-21 inches, ranging up to 24 inches) and king, chum and silver salmon. Abundant camp sites with adjacent fishing holes are a hallmark of the Kwethluk River. This is an Alaska float trip which offers total wilderness solitude for your group. The remote nature of the Kwethluk River affords very good wildlife viewing opportunities and a feeling of complete solitude that will lift the human spirit. There is no competition for fishing waters or camp locations so that a completely relaxing Alaska fly fishing raft trip experience may be enjoyed. \

    This is the way Alaska fly fishing was done in Bristol Bay 25 years ago: countless wild rainbow trout that have almost never been fished to. Shangri-La. The Kwethluk still offers amazing fishing with its bounteous supply of Pacific salmon, large rainbow trout (to 24 inches) and the other resident species of the region.

    This is a very remote river, and the rainbow an silver fishing will be some of the best. If you are interested in joining us, please call me ASAP. Thanks.
