General Information on What to Expect on Your Incredible Alaska Fly-In Six Day Adventure in the Alaska Wilderness
All float trips begin in King Salmon, Alaska. Guests and anglers are met by one of our guides and transferred to a float plane to fly to a remote glacial lake.
Anglers will spend the first night on one of the glacial lakes where the rivers originate. From there you will begin a journey downstream, stopping each night at a different camp site to enjoy delicious appetizers and hearty gourmet meals.
The fishing is a combination of floating and wading, giving the angler an opportunity to fish all kinds of water from fast runs to quiet pools. Our guides will be there to assist you - they are experienced professionals who know the rivers thoroughly and how to make a successful and enjoyable trip. We guarantee it.

On The River
Borealis Outdoor Adventure is well regarded for its world class Rainbow Trout fishing. When conditions are right, an angler can cast to rainbow trout, sockeye salmon, tiger salmon, king salmon, grayling, dolly varden and artic char in a single week of fishing. This kind angling opportunity can be found only in a few locations in the world. If you would like to go after these other species, your guide can give advice on angling methods, availability, and fly or lure selection. You can fish from the raft. You can walk, fly-fish, spin or bait cast. You have a lot of options; so, it's a good idea to discuss your plans with your guide.
The daily schedule varies. All anglers can fish 24 hrs. around the clock. Check with your guide about your best options.
