World Class Fishing on the Talachulitna River

Experience world class fishing on the Talachulitna River one of the most famous fishing rivers in the world. The Talachulitna was actually the first river in Alaska to be regulated as catch and release only for Rainbow Trout. The Rainbow Trout of the Talachulitna River are wild, native trout famed for their brilliant crimson markings and distinctive black spots. In additional Rainbow Trout you have the option to target Arctic Grayling and all five species of Pacific Salmon. The first to arrive on the Talachulitna is King Salmon around mid-June followed by Sockeye, Chum & Pink in late July and Silvers in August. And for those looking for more adventure Tal-Adventures Lodge offers helicopter fly out fishing to even more remote locations.

In addition to world class fishing Tal-Adventures offers a wealth of other adventures to choose from. You can take a helicopter ride over an Alaska glacier, land on that glacier and then hike & explore the glacier on foot before taking the helicopter back. Just want to see Alaska from the air they also offer a flightseeing helicopter tour over the deep forest, river, mountains, and glaciers. In addition to those great options they also offer whitewater rafting & heli-hiking which gives you access to breathtaking, remote hiking sites that would ordinarily be inaccessible otherwise.
