Western Alaska

Over 20 years ago Frontier River guides pioneered guided Alaska float fishing trips in this region. Western Alaska consists of the coastal areas bordering Bristol Bay and the Bering Sea. Rivers flow westerly from the aged Kilbuck and Kuskokwim Mountains, through forests and lowland deltas and offer the most extraordinary fly fishing float trips in Alaska. The Yukon/Kuskokwim Delta is an aquatic system of immense proportions. The resident species abound in numbers, nourished by nutriments provided by healthy runs of all five species of Pacific salmon. Frontier River Guides offers Alaska fly fishing raft expeditions on the Aniak, Arolik, Goodnews, Kisaralik and Kwethluk rivers. We access these waters from Bethel, Alaska.

Katmai Region

The Katmai Region is located on the Alaska Peninsula in southwest Alaska, and the waters flow from the Aleutian Range. The terrain is that of ancient mountains and high tundra country descending through sparse forests to scraggly lowlands. This region hosts the largest sockeye salmon runs in the world, nourishing highly productive, world class fishing rivers with trophy sized resident species, ideal circumstances to experience a remote Alaska fly fishing float trip. Rivers we fish in this region include the Alagnak River, American Creek and Moraine Creek. Our Katmai region Alaska fly fishing trips begin in King salmon, Alaska.

Alaska Range

The Alaska Range is a vast arc of mountains that defines South Central Alaska. Weathered at their western extreme, the peaks of the Alaska Range are jagged and geologically younger in the eastern portion (includes Mt. McKinley). The opportunities for an excellent Alaska rafting and fly fishing float trip vary from the gentle flows of the Mulchatna drainage in the west to the rushing crystal clear mountain waters flowing into south central Alaska from the north. Healthy populations of resident species and and spawning salmon abound. Frontier River Guides of Alaska provides guided fly fishing float trips on the Koktuli River, Lake Creek and the Stuyahok River. These waters may be reached directly from Anchorage or through Iliamna, Alaska.
