Accessing remote Alaska fishing waters via float plane will elevate your pursuit to an entirely different level. By far the most popular fly out fishing trip we offer is sockeye and bear viewing at Big River Lake/Wolverine Creek. Here you will experience thousands of sockeye schooling in the shallows all while being in a remote fly out location where there are no roads and bears outnumber humans. We also do a flight seeing tours over spectacular glaciers (weather permitting) on the return flight so for many, this is a once in a lifetime trip!
