About This Boat

The Gulkana River is a beautiful winding river. Its headwaters are just a little stream that exits Copper Lake in the Wrangell Mountains and travels over 300 miles to tidewater at Cordova. At tidewater, the Copper River Delta is over five miles across and teaming with our famous Copper River Reds and Kings.

The word, "Gulkana" is an Athabascan native work meaning winding river. It covers about three river miles for every mile on the highway. On our five-hour charters we fish 5 to 6 miles of the river. On our ten-hour charters we can extend that up to 23 miles of the river.

Half Day and Full Day Charters

With up to three trips daily, we will outfit every client with all the essentials including your own fully insured and permitted professional guide and rafts, all tackle, boots and PFD's. For your nourishment, we carry snacks and beverages for the five-hour charters. We carry sack lunches, snacks and beverages for the ten-hour trips. (No alcoholic beverages, please!)

Of course, some days anglers will limit out and some days fishing can be challenging. I cannot guarantee your catch but I can guarantee that our guides will do all they can to provide an exciting and eventful day as they put our guests in the middle of them. The rest us up to you and providence.
