Fish all day and sit around the campfire at night, telling fish stories of the day ~ or share in the memory of the amazing scenery and wildlife you saw on the river that day.

Summer Weather - What to expect

Alaskan summer weather can offer up all sorts of surprises. The weather can be very warm, in May, June & July it may surprise you but we can see temps in the 70's, 80's or 90's , or it can be rainy and in the mid 50's. Either way, expect mid 50's in the morning, and hope for warmer temperatures throughout the day.


From May through July expect to have 20 plus hours of daylight by about mid-August it starts to wane and the sunlight gives up her light to the beautiful fall air and colors… About mid-August the weather can dip below freezing in the evenings – but typically will warm up to 50 -60 degrees throughout the day. If the suns not shining it's probably raining as August and September are our rainy months.


We suggest dressing in layers at all times as you never know what to anticipate.
