Starting on Paxson Lake catching Lakers, then starting into the river the Rainbows on the upper Gulkana River can be outstanding! It is hard to describe what it is like to catch 40 rainbows over 24 inches in one 5 day trip! The Grayling get annoying, there are so many, we will start working to figure out what flies scare the grayling away and still catch the Rainbows!

Klutina Lodge also specializes in rafting and adventure trips on the Copper, Gulkana, Klutina, Tonsina, Delta, and many other rivers. These rivers are home to the bald eagle, moose, bear, wild bison and much more of Alaska's beautiful wildlife. From 15 day adventure trips for the Diehard to 6 hr wilderness floats. We have an experience the whole family can enjoy!

The fish come up the river from the ocean to spawn, and they are big! This area is more remote and is incredible. The Copper River Basin is better than other places because of its unknown identity and has not been discovered by the thousands. It is not a "combat fishing zone" like the Kenai. You can actually get out on your own and fish without being shoulder to shoulder with someone. Many times we get to fish half the day before even seeing another boat.

How many days of fishing should I book?

How long you stay depends on what kind of Alaskan experience you want. If you are coming to Alaska to create a hard-core, once in a lifetime fishing expedition, then we would suggest that you fish for at least five days. Our five day package is an awesome way to enjoy Alaska. In this time you really get to know your guide and the river. Also, if the fishing is slow one day you'll have a very good chance of hitting the jackpot the next day. It has never happened that we go five days without some serious action, during the fishing season.

If you have come to Alaska to sightsee and fish, and don't plan on staying in our area long you can book a day trip and have a great time on the river. Odds are excellent that we'll put you on fish (it's what we do.) Also we would like to mention our sightseeing trips, Wrangle St. Elisa National Park, Denali Highway, Caribou Migration Tours, Flight seeing trips, and many other Wildlife viewing tours.

Giant Gulkana River King Salmon from the Copper River system. If you're planning on being in Alaska for several weeks, touring, and traveling and don't want to spend too much time in the Copper River Basin, we would recommend fishing for Kings in mid July and coming back through Glennallen to fish Sockeyes (Reds) in August. That's a great recipe for a salmon fishing memory. Also fishing the Saltwater out of Valdez for Halibut and Silvers is a worth while trip!

Where are you located and how do I get there?
The Copper River Basin is located 180 miles northeast of Anchorage on the Glen Highway (Highway 1.) Just jumping on the Glen Highway will get you to Glennallen, our base town. From Glennallen, the Gulkana River is 17 miles Northwest and the Klutina River is about 14 miles Southeast. Call us and we will give specific instructions how to get to us and where to stay. There are not that many roads in this part of Alaska. It's hard to get lost.

What is my whole Trip going to cost me?
Plane tickets to Anchorage range from $400 to $800 depending on when you buy them and where you're flying from. Your rent-a-car will cost between $50 and $100 a day, depending on the size of the car. Other than those expenses, you will have your guided trip expenses, and gratuity.
