Aniak Air Guides
Remote Alaska Fishing, Wildlife & Rafting Adventures Since 1955 | Choose From an All-Inclusive Guided Lodge Package or a Budget Friendly Self-Guided Float Fishing Trip
For the more adventurous type this is an incredible and remote Alaska experience!
A self-guided float trip through the Alaskan wilderness on a large inflatable raft. These are easy flowing rivers with the purpose of the trip being fishing (not whitewater rafting). Which of our nine rivers you choose will depend on the species of fish you want to catch and the time of year. All of our unguided packages are designed for our guests to bring/supply as little as possible. In a nutshell.....you provide food, sleeping bag, and personal/fishing gear....we take care of the rest.
Prices for unguided trips include all bush flying and airport pick-ups and transportation around Aniak, rafts and camping gear. Contact Us for more information on our unguided float trips!
Fish for Salmon, Rainbow & Lake Trout, Arctic Grayling, Arctic Char, Northern Pike & Sheefish. Also Includes One Bush Fly Out
Trips run Monday through Saturday include guided fishing, round trip transporation from Aniak, lodging, food and one bush flyout for up to 6 people. Imagine the wonderful fishing you will experience by having an experienced guide, an airplane at your beck and call and some of the finest fishing rivers in the world for an entire week! Aniak Air Guides' lodge sits on the outskirts of the village of Aniak, at the confluence of The Aniak & Kuskokwim Rivers (see location page). Being right in the heart of the 3 most productive fisheries in western/southwest Alaska ( the Yukon, Kuskokwim, and Bristol Bay Drainages), gives us a unique advantage to access, and choose from so many wonderful and productive fisheries. Local waters commonly yield 20-30 salmon per day!....not too mention all the rainbows, arctic char, dolly varden, & arctic grayling. King and chum salmon are the first to arrive.... starting their run by the village in mid June and culminating by the end of July. Aggressive silvers typically show in late July, and hit all the way thru mid-Sept. Reds and pinks are sprinkled in from late June thru early August. Rainbow Trout fishing is second to none, starting in mid-June, with hot fishing all the way in to September. Arctic char, dolly varden, and arctic grayling are also caught in abundance until mid-September.

Aniak Air Guides is located in the village of Aniak and is only accessible by plane or by boat. The nice thing about staying here is that they will pick you up at the airport. It is easy to charter a flight from Anchorage to Aniak. The village of Aniak sits along the banks of the Kuskokwim River and is a community of about 500 people in the summer. The lodge doubles as a B&B and houses up to 12 guests. The lodge is made up of a main lodge and three out-cabins and offers a private time for guests.
This is bush country Alaska style, and the Aniak Air Guides lodge is pretty amazing. It is comfortable and offers conveniences such as WiFi, Cable TV, and 24-hour electricity. They will even allow you to bring your pets. A new service for Aniak Air Guides is the Fly-out - Drop-off Self Guided Float Trip which is a perfect way to explore the rugged and beautifully wild rivers of Alaska.
Besides that amazing fishing, guests can raft down the rivers or head out into the wilderness backpacking. There is always the wildlife and wildlife viewing trips. If you are a hunter, this lodge easily accommodates hunters.
Check these guys out as this is a hidden oasis for fishermen and those who love the outdoors. It does not get much richer for Alaska Aventures. Rob's done an amazing job of setting this up right.

Self-Guided Float Trips
For those of you who opt for the self-guided float trips, here is what to expect. First, you get an aerial view of the river you choose to float and Ken is good about doing this so you have some expectation of what you are getting into. He picks you up at the airport and as you fly to your destination, he flies you up the river. You have a pre-arranged pickup point and a time, the rest is up to you. You can spend as much time in one spot as you like or you can drift the river. In between the drop off and pick up you can reach Ken via an InReach Device or marine radio that is part of your provided-gear. Love the river and want to stay an extra week - go for it, just let Ken know via the communication devices. If you have an emergency, just reach out to Ken, and he will handle it for you. With Anaik Air Guides you have the freedom to enjoy Alaska on your own but with help available with just a radio call away. Note: Rivers range from Class I to Class II for rafting and if you have the experience, there are some with Class III rapids.
