Dave Fish Alaska is based out of Talkeetna, Alaska. They offer a range of float trips that include master fishing expeditions and family rafting and fishing adventures. In addition to guided float trips, these guys offer a DIY option. In fact, your fishing and rafting options include full day and half day adventures with fly-in fishing and helicopter fishing too.

The Talkeetna River

The Tal - as the locals call it - While there are day trips available the Tal is a river that requires 5-7 days to explore and enjoy. Your trip begins floating down Talachulitna Creek and then into the Talachulitna River. The river flows into the Skwentna River. The river ranges from class I to IV rapids. You will float down shallows, riffles, and rapids with names like Hell's Gate. The gate is not long - just 100 yards or so, but is packed with large boulders. Interesting word - gate - because they always lead to something. Hell's Gate leads to the next juncture and that must be named Hell. Well, it doesn't. What it leads to is a mile or two or rapids that are also rocky and they come up on you quickly.

The Fishing is good. This is a catch-and-release river for Rainbow Trout and that means that the population of trophy Rainbows is big. Expect good salmon runs too. The key to fishing with Dave Fish Alaska is to discuss your expectations. They have the means and the knowledge to give you exactly what you need.
