This is a boon to the fly fisherman who is looking for something special.

Boasting a world-famous run of all five species of pacific salmon, the Alagnak River is also home to a host of resident fish, such as leopard rainbow trout, arctic char and grayling. This prestigious river is located within the Katmai National Park, with its headwaters in the surrounding mountains and drains into Bristol Bay. It is also famously known as “The Branch River” for its seemingly endless braids, where 10 miles of river can easily contain 30 miles of fishable waters. With such exclusive river access, you are sure not to be bothered by any crowds.

This package includes all meals during your stay. 6 days of guided lodge based river experiences, whether it be fishing, wildlife- viewing or adventure activities. Comfortable heated riverfront cabin with access to toilet and hot showers only a few steps away from your cabin door, or en-suite toilet and hot showers. You will arrive on Sunday, and activities begin Monday through Saturday with departure on the following Sunday.


For those who think a toilet and bed is too extravagant and would rather spend their nights in a tent surrounded by the stars and sounds of the wild, we have the perfect package for you. Our guests will stay in a tent camp on the lower Alagnak river hosted by professional guides and targeting primarily fresh sea-run salmon. There is a possibility for Rainbow Camps near the Lake Outlets early season in June as well. Like our lodge based packages you will arrive on Sunday, fish Monday through Saturday and depart on the following Sunday. Your meals are included, and your help around camp is expected.

Featured Packages


The location of our 6-10 day trips is Western Alaska. Western Alaska is truly remote, very little evidence of humanity or other fisherman. The rivers we operate on don't have lodges clogged with jet boat traffic We fly into either Bethel or Dillingham via Alaska Air which departs multiple times a day from Anchorage. From there guests and guides board bush planes either on wheels or floats to head to one of many rivers in the vast area.

We target all 5 species of Pacific Salmon, mouse eating Leopard Rainbows, beautifully finned Arctic Grayling, brilliantly colored Dolly Varden, and Arctic Char. On all FishHound trips guests enjoy a 2 to one ratio (one guide two clients). Guests also enjoy our move-able "lodge", a large cook tent and dining area that can seat 8 and provide stream side views while being out of the elements. Clients have their own sleeping tents complete with cots and insulated down pads. Other than fishing clients are only responsible for packing up their personal gear, FishHound staff takes care of everything else.

Contact us to learn more about this incredible experience!


We run heli-fishing on multiple rivers throughout south-central Alaska, which is easily accessible from the Anchorage area.

We offer single day heli-fishing trips as well as 2 thru 6 multi-day float fishing trips . This type of trip provides an amazing remote Alaskan river experience with much more ease than some of the further location we operate on. This is a perfect trip for folks who want a wilderness trip/experience but don't want to spend their whole time in Alaska in one remote location.

Most trips depart from the beautiful town of Talkeetna in the shadow of Denali. Denali provides an amazing view as you are flown out to some of the most phenomenal fishing in Alaska. Depending on the time of year we target all 5 species of Pacific Salmon. Huge bruiser Rainbow Trout are always present as well as Arctic Grayling and Dolly Varden.

The Wild River Guides is the lifestyle of Mark Rutherford, a man who is himself of nature. Alaska has a lot to offer people, and people, in turn, come by the thousands to see Alaska. Most leave amazed at what they say. A few leave changed because the did not see Alaska with their eyes, but with their hearts. Alaska is a place that you feel. It courses through you like the blood in your veins. That is what Wild River Guides does for you - they allow you to feel Alaska.
Alaska Rainbow Adventures

Alaska Rainbow Adventures

Float down the Kanektok, Togiak, Alagnak, into Moraine Creek, American Creek, Lake Creek, and down the Talachulitna River, Kwethluk River, or the Koktuli and Stuyahok rivers. What all that means to a fly fisherman is ample opportunity to tempt a trophy Rainbow Trout or King Salmon into striking your fly.
