Alaska Trophy Fishing Safaris

What makes Alaska Trophy Fishing Safaris so special?

Not only has this special part of Alaska made its impact on guests and anglers around the world, but the magic of the Mulchatna has touched even the youngest steward of the river. Kudos to McKenna Carlin (12 years old) who was awarded 1st Place in the 2019 University of Alaska/Anchorage Daily News Creative Writing Contest for her poem, "I Am" dedicated to the Mulchatna River. We couldn't be more proud. 

Alaska Trophy Fishing Safaris, a family-run business, offers a unique and exceptional fishing experience for seasoned anglers as well as novices on the Bristol Bay river system. This is home to the largest native salmon run in the world. Unlike fishing the elbow-to-elbow, crowded rivers accessible by the Alaska road system, our pristine and private location on the Mulchatna River encompasses peaceful fishing on a river far from any crowds where you can catch seven different species of fish and enjoy an unprecedented wilderness adventure.

Most of our guests are returning customers and the historically strong run of salmon keep them coming back. Celebrating over 3 decades at this exact location, we pride ourselves in providing a quality, service-oriented fishing trip. Along with the fishery, our dedicated crew of guides and staff is the highlight of most of our compliments.  Contact us now to book that fishing trip of a lifetime!
