Booking Your Trip

Talon Air Service prides itself in providing the most enjoyable adventures possible into Alaska's remote country. And the only way to experience the best Alaska has to offer is to travel by float plane into the wilderness regions seldom seen by visitors. Here you will find untouched, pristene wilderness with fishing, sightseeing and wildlife viewing opportunities that even most Alaskans haven't experienced.

With the range of today's modern bush planes, one can spend the day hundreds of miles from civilization and be back at your motel, lodge, or bed-n-breakfast before the sun goes down. And the adventure will provide memories and stories that will last a lifetime.

Most of our fishing trips will transport you from our float plane base in Soldotna (see Location Map) to your fishing destination and back to Soldotna all in one day. There is no need to fly into exotic wilderness lodges far from civilization and spend a week in isolation. For some this may be exactly what they desire. But for the majority of visitors, planning as many different experiences as possible is the most popular game plan.

Pricing for all our fishing packages described below can be found in the table at the bottom of this page.

Guided Sockeye Salmon Fishing - Wolverine Creek / Big River Lakes

Undoubtedly one of our most enjoyable packages. You'll experience the thrill of flying to the west side of Cook Inlet to Redoubt Bay from our floatplane base in Soldotna. 10,000 foot volcanoes can be seen on either side of the plane as you descend to the lake where a professional guide will transfer you into one of their 19 foot boats to begin your sockeye salmon fishing day in Alaska. The guide provides spinning rods & reels, the fishing tackle for Sockeye salmon, rain gear, hip boots and bug repellant if needed. On those days when the weather, fishing, and time allow, your guide is prepared to cook up one of your fresh salmon as an on-the-water "shore lunch" if you desire. Please ask your guide if this is possible during your trip. Beavers, otters, ducks, loons, swans and Bald eagles also inhabit the area and both black bears and Brown bears may be spotted fishing for a salmon meal in the same area the anglers are fishing.
JUNE 10th through JULY 31st for SOCKEYE Salmon.

Guided Silver Salmon Fishing - Big River Lakes or Kustatan River

Many of our returning anglers have previously enjoyed our Bear Viewing or Sockeye Salmon Fishing trips and would like a new fly out experience. We offer just the ticket with our late summer expeditions to the west side of Cook Inlet when the silver salmon (coho) begin running up several of our favorite streams. We begin from our floatplane base in Soldotna and 30 minutes later we are setting down and transferring you to one of the guide's boats for a trip across the lake or downriver to the fishing holes. Your professional guide provides all the fishing gear, bait, tackle, hip boots and bug dope (if needed).

Once at our destination anglers will quickly learn the best techniques for hooking up with one of Alaska's mightiest fighting salmon. Drag burning runs will get your adrenalin pumping. The setting is quiet and peaceful and just what you'd expect in remote Alaska....until someone yells "Fish On!" to break the silence. You'll find that seems to happen a lot.
JULY 15th through August 31st for SILVER Salmon.

Guided Sockeye & Silver Salmon Fishing - Crescent Lake & River *

One of Talon Air's newest fly-in fishing trips opens up guided sockeye and silver salmon fishing on the Crescent River in beautiful Lake Clark National Park and Preserve where unspoiled wilderness Alaska is just a 40 minute flight from our location. As one of America's newest national parks it is the least visited which attests to its nearly untouched beauty. And during the summer this lake and river system support an exceptional sport fishery. Lake trout and Dolly Varden inhabit the lake while sockeye and silver salmon are abundant from mid-summer through fall. The sockeye salmon run into Crescent Lake averages 80,000 fish each July and the silver salmon run is non-stop from mid-August through September. Both species allow for a three fish limit for the angler to return with more than just memories of the experience. Your professional guide will provide all the fishing gear, bait, tackle, boat, hip boots, rain gear and bug dope (if needed).

During these salmon runs dozens of Alaska's brown bears congregate in this area to gorge themselves on a rich salmon diet in preparation for the long winter ahead. Anglers who visit at this time of year are often treated to multiple sightings of bears both along the lake shore and frequently along the river. These bears are quite active at this time feeding almost non-stop and bears may appear anywhere at anytime so keeping your still camera or video camera at arm's reach is almost a necessity. There is a 4 person minimum per flight on this tour. Please contact us for pairing up with others to meet the minimums.
JULY 1st through July 31st for SOCKEYE Salmon. AUGUST 20th through September 15th for SILVER Salmon.
* This trip subject to a $6 National Parks User Fee.


Remote Lakes Fly-In Guided Fishing Trips

Our remote lakes fly-in fishing trips will put you in pristine alpine or island settings few anglers have experienced. With the diversity Alaska has to offer we can provide a variety of trips: float tube fishing for rainbow trout or grayling, zodiac raft fishing for grayling, or shoreline fishing for grayling or rainbows depending on the location. Each of those trips require a minimum of four persons and range in price from $440 to $670 per person with the guide fees included. They are full day guided excursions and the spinning gear and tackle is provided by your guide. Anglers preferring to fly fish should bring their own fly rods and flies. (Contact us for appropriate flies, streamers and leeches to bring.) For Zodiac raft fishing for grayling or rainbows a Zodiac inflatable is provided. Hip boots for shoreline fishing for the rainbows and grayling are provided but anglers may bring their own waders if desired.
See the various trips offered in the table below.

Remote Fly-In Special Package Guided Fishing Charters

Our Remote Fly-In SPECIALTY Trips provide our clients with some very unique fishing experiences. Our destinations vary depending on the target species and the time of the season. These are areas that few anglers have an opportunity visit except by special charter. Alexander Lake is the only lake in Southcentral Alaska managed by the Department of Fish & Game as a trophy Northern Pike lake. Our Prince William Sound adventures will take you to remote locations for sockeye or silver fishing that will be sure to leave you with lifelong memories. Pricing for these packages can be found in the lower portion of the table below. Please add $70 per person for guide fee.

Full Day Multi-Species Guided Group Fly-In Fishing
This is probably the Premier fishing trip one can experience. The plane and pilot are at your disposal for a full day of fishing...and Alaskan days are very long. You will leave in the morning and fly into remote areas. Glaciers, volcanoes, bears, Dall sheep, caribou, moose, swans and beaver are just a sampling of the wildlife you will view right outside your window on the way in. You'll want to bring an extra set of camera batteries on this trip. Arctic char, northern pike, lake trout, grayling, rainbow trout and salmon inhabit these pristene areas and will provide the angler with truly a Trip of a Lifetime....all in a single day.

Hip boots, spinning tackle and rain gear are provided by your guide. If you are a fly-fishing enthusiast you can bring along your own rod and tackle. You may have up to EIGHT anglers in your group for this trip. This package is popular with businesses who enjoy providing incentive awards for their employees. Its also great for that special family reunion. Please add $70 per person for guide fee.
