Sockeye Salmon Fishing
Big River Lakes
Undoubtedly one of our most enjoyable packages. You'll experience the thrill of flying to the west side of Cook Inlet to Redoubt Bay from our floatplane base in Soldotna. 10,000 foot volcanoes can be seen on either side of the plane as you descend to the lake where a professional guide will transfer you into one of their 19 foot boats to begin your sockeye salmon fishing day in Alaska. The guide provides spinning rods & reels, the fishing tackle for Sockeye salmon, rain gear, hip boots and bug repellant if needed. On those days when the weather, fishing, and time allow, your guide is prepared to cook up one of your fresh salmon as an on-the-water "shore lunch" if you desire. Please ask your guide if this is possible during your trip. Beavers, otters, ducks, loons, swans and Bald eagles also inhabit the area and both black bears and Brown bears may be spotted fishing for a salmon meal in the same area the anglers are fishing. The guide will provide the fishing gear needed.
JUNE 10th through JULY 31st for SOCKEYE Salmon
One of Talon Air's newest fly-in fishing trips opens up guided sockeye fishing on the Crescent River in beautiful Lake Clark National Park and Preserve where unspoiled wilderness Alaska is just a 40 minute flight from our location. As one of America's newest national parks it is the least visited which attests to its nearly untouched beauty. And during the summer this lake and river system supports exceptional sport fishery. Lake trout and Dolly Varden inhabit the lake while sockeye salmon are abundant from mid-summer through fall. The sockeye salmon run into Crescent Lake averages 80,000 fish each July and the silver salmon run is non-stop from mid-August through September. Both species allow for a three fish limit for the angler to return with more than just memories of the experience. Your professional guide will provide all the fishing gear needed.
