Fly specializes in Alaska fly fishing float trips in the Bristol Bay region of Alaska. Looking for large rainbow trout? Float trips offer an exhilarating way to explore and fly fish this incredible wilderness. Imagine camping on the bank of a remote stream, fishing until midnight, waking up to the sound of salmon splashing their way upstream. These trips are fly fishing only and we welcome both novice and experts alike with patient instruction and lots of easy to fool fish!. Our Alaska Float trips utilize several rivers in Katmai National Park including the Alagnak River, Grizzly Creek, and Moraine Creek. We have been floating these rivers fro 15 years and have great confidence in the quality of our trips. Fly Fishing is all we do, no spin fishing here.
As you probably know a float trip entails camping. You will board a float plane fly to a lake at the head of your chosen river. After that we are on our own. Although it is camping it is comfortable camping since we can carry lots of gear. We have cots to sleep on, tents you can stand up in, a screened weather proof dining tent and lots of great fresh food and wine that will rival any land based lodge. For us the camping seems a small price to pay to be living on the river with all the extra fly fishing and wild life viewing time that affords
Our favorite quarry is the rainbow trout and we love to fly fish for them. Some of the rivers are fly fishing only but all of our trips are fly fishing only regardless of the regulations on the river. Alaska fly fishing regulations require single hook, barbless and catch and release for all rainbows. The big rainbows range from 5-12 pounds, and we have landed a couple fish in the 15 pound range! Five species of Pacific Salmon, Char and Grayling add to excitement every day. Whether you want to fish dry flies for rainbows, or sling a ten weight for a 60 pound King salmon, we feel we offer the best float trips in all of Alaska. Join us (Ed, Rachel, Jeff and Pedro) for the adventure of a lifetime and the finest rainbow trout and salmon fishing in Alaska. Experience the wilds of Alaska away from the crowds, the way it should be.

On Siberia Expeditions' trips 7 World records IGFA were set. Our equipment, lodging, hotels, meals and guides are the best available, and we, Siberia Expeditions, are committed to make your trip with us the greatest adventure of a lifetime.
We like clear, mountain rivers with plenty of fish. We fish in places that many regard as extreme, and that demand a certain amount of effort to reach. Most of our trips are fly-in, fly-out. It also means bigger fish. Less expensive are fly-in, drive-out trips.
We are constantly on the lookout for the new places to fish, tougher adventures and bigger challenges. For our trips we hire MI-8 helicopter with best chopper drivers imaginable, who have been working with us for a long time.
Regardless of your own medical insurance, Siberia Expeditions provides medical insurance (25 000$ worth) per each client, that is included into the trip package.
We have several GPS units and powerful satellite phones. All of our clients are granted 10 minutes free to call home from the river.
The clients are calling our trips "fishermen's paradise, complete with gourmet foods". We take plenty of fresh meat, chicken, Kamchatka crab, scallops, sturgeon caviar, smoked salmon, lots of cheese and sausage in our ice chests, green tea, coffee, cookies and chocolate, good vodka, wines, Japanese beer, fresh fruits and vegetables, so the cooking is exceptional, as well as the fishing.
Catch and release
Taimen is a catch and release species. Large Taimen grow very slowly and could be 60-80 years old. Some of the other species (lenok, grayling, salmon) will be kept on a limited basis for camp specialty dishes.
The best group size is 6 people. The group size is limited due to safety reasons per weight restrictions of the helicopters.
