Alaska Bush Adventures L.L.C. has been providing fishing excursions since the mid-80s in Alaska and since the late 80s in Russia. We have everything you'll need to make your sport fishing float or jet boat trip a dream adventure. We can provide the perfect trip to meet your needs. Our jet boat trips offer a more comfortable style, with fishing from a tent base camp setting, with six-man extreme weather tents that accommodate two clients and cots for sleeping in, showers with running hot water, generators for power, and a common-use kitchen wall tent for dining.

No competition, no sharing the river with other anglers, just you and the river for the experience of a lifetime. Flowing, crystal clear water rivers and streams provide great sport fishing for Kings (Chinook), Coho (Silver), Chum (Dog), Pink (Humpy) and Sockeye (Red) Salmon, Arctic Grayling, Arctic Char (Dolly Varden), Sheefish, Burbot, and Northern Pike.

Secluded Fishing in Southwestern Alaska

Secluded Fishing in Southwestern Alaska

Southwestern Alaska is full of winding and converging rivers that are plentiful with fish and surrounding wildlife but few are not overrun with other fishermen. The beautiful Holitna/Hoholitna and their numerous tributaries are easy-flowing, mostly flat-water rivers and streams that offer you the opportunity for the best secluded freshwater fishing trip in the region. You will pass through forests of black and white spruce, poplars, birch, and cottonwood trees. The river begins in the Alpine mountains and passes through a lot of windy, slow turns moving on its long trip down to meet the Kuskokwim River. It is the most remote, least traveled river, and is very unlikely that you will see any other people. King Salmon The upper river starts above tree line in the tundra, then lower down it travels through mixed white and black spruce, cottonwood, and poplar forest. The water is crystal clear with a good steady flow. You will be surrounded by beauty and wildlife along the way, with rolling tundra hills filled with berries in the distance while the river corridor is narrower and secluded by lowland brush. Further downriver, the scenery turns wooded. Alaska Yukon Moose, Alaskan Caribou, Alaska Brown Bear, Wolf, and Wolverine are but a few of the animal species that wander these areas. In addition, you will also see an abundance of waterfowl and native Alaskan game birds. With fish to catch in the mountain lakes, rivers, and streams, wildlife to view, breathtaking scenery at your fingertips, and plenty of seclusion, we're sure your trip will be the most memorable ever!

A Note from Master Guide Hugh Krank

I believe in going somewhere you are not overrun by a crowd of people and that you have the opportunity to experience the true beauty of the Alaskan wilderness. Since 1978 I've been fortunate enough to enjoy all that Alaska has to offer and I have come to realize that I need to take the time to absorb the truly amazing experience that is around me.

When I am in the bush at night time I enjoy going out and looking up at the stars, and listening to the relaxing sound of the river and I know how truly blessed I am. I look around and listen to what is around me and I feel so fortunate to be able to do what I do and my joy is to share this with others. It amazes me to be able to walk out of my front door and drop a line in the crystal clear river water and catch a multitude of all sorts of different species of fish. We are in the business of making dreams come true and this has truly been my dream come true to share this with others. There is a lot of great fishing in Alaska but there are not a lot of areas that you have access to that are not overrun with others.

What we have always specialized in is taking that extra step to get you into a remote area where you are not competing with others. You may not see another sole in sight your entire trip. There are a lot of rivers in Alaska that are un-fished because there is no access to land a plane to get you there. Therefore what happens is the areas that do have access are utilized by everyone. We have taken the extra effort to trek into an extremely remote river system and roughed-in runways and camp sights so that we can then bring our clients to a place that is exclusively remote and a true Alaskan experience. Over the past 24 years, we worked on improving our camps' infrastructure by bringing in top-of-the-line equipment from 8-wheel drive Argos and ATVs for accessing the Alpine mountains and wilderness backcountry, jet boats for running up the upper river and stream systems, generators for power, hot shower systems, and large deluxe wall tents. During this time we have roughed in four comfortable wall tent-style camps and cabin camps. These trips are designed to give you a quality Alaskan experience you will never forget. The rivers I float are remote and secluded and a true angler's dream trip. We have refused other operators to use our landing strip that accesses our region so only you are sure to enjoy a truly amazing quality fishing adventure.

Thank you,

Master Guide:
