Fish and Float Alaska is a cousin to the world-class fly-out fishing offered by Rainbow River Lodge. The focus here is on float trips where you raft down one of the wild Alaskan rivers and fish along the way. Guests bring their own food and fishing gear, and Fish and Float Alaska supplies the rest.

Floating and Fishing with Fish and Float Alaska

They focus on the rivers in the South Western portion of Alaska. Your choice of rivers is beyond amazing. These are 5-7 day floating trips that are either guided or self-guided. Its a float and go set up, and guests should expect to spend the entire day floating and fishing. You stop at key points to set up camp, eat, and sleep, and in the morning you eat, break camp, and float.

They focus on the rivers throughout the Lake Iliamna area and fly fishing. Guided fishing trips range from 2-9 guests, and they focus on your fishing wish list, both solely and as a group.

Lake Iliamna is a world-class, Trophy Rainbow Trout fishery as are the rivers throughout the area. If you are interested in battling Rainbow Trout in the 25-33 inch range, then this is the area to do that. Many of these rivers are catch-and-release which means that every your you have greater access to larger Rainbow Trout. These waters are also rich with Salmon and depending on when you time your trip you could be fishing for big Chinook Salmon, Silver Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Pinks or Chum Salmon too. If you have never witnessed the runs of Sockeye Salmon, you should. There are millions of Sockeye that swim up the rivers to spawn. They are so thick in the water that you could reach down and just pluck them from the water with your hands.

Fly Fishing for Trophy Rainbows

In many parts of the world, they talk about Steelhead fever, but those people have likely never had the opportunity to battle with the freshwater version of a Steelhead that was 33 inches long. Steelhead are sea run Rainbow Trout and here in Alaska. You don't have to wait for the Steelhead to return from the sea because their freshwater cousins are big, fat, and feisty.

This is Trophy Rainbow Trout county and the Fish and Float Alaska offers fly fishing expeditions to many of the rivers. Because Alaska is so full of rivers and fish all separated by wilderness, these fish remain wild. Best time for Rainbow Fly Fishing is June through September.

Expect big things. Expect thrilling fishing that will change your life. Yes, the fishing here is that good.
