 Opening week gives our Guests the first shot at King and Chum salmon when they are ar their hottest and fresh from the Bering Sea. Resident Rainbow Trout are ravenous after a long winter and are actively feeding on the outgoing smolts, and when the water temperature is right, they will also crush a deer hair mouse, like the 28 incher pictured above. It's also the best time of the year for trophy Grayling, with many approaching 20" and more. Here's a great opportunity to experience this fabulous fishing. Buy One trip at the regular fishing price of $5250, and Get the second trip for 50% off, or $2625, with both anglers paying their Charter Airfare of $950 and a Native Land Use Fee of $75. This is one opener you don't want to miss!

 The Goodnews River may be the best River in all of Alaska to catch the rare Pacific Salmon Grand Slam, landing all 5 species of Pacific Salmon, the King, the Silver, the Pink, the Chum and the Sockeye, in one day. Many anglers have attempted this, and with a little luck, it happens to some of our Guests every year. It happens on fly: it happens on spin gear: some years it seems easy; some year's it's a little more difficult. In 2015, we even had 2 different parties of anglers fishing together accomplish this feat both on the same day, one in each week! And for the ultimate Alaskan fishing challenge, Maybe you can get the Super Grand Slam: the 5 Pacific Salmon, a Rainbow, a Dolly Varden and a Grayling all in one day on fly! Only 1 angler in the last 10 years has accomplished this. Will you be next?
