Default Re: What Keeps You From Going to Alaska to Fish?

The confluence when the reds run is combat for sure. My wife and I seek solitude in all our trips and the Upper Kenai is not bad in Sept. There are other rafts and drift boats, but not as many as I would have expected. For true solitude, it's hard to beat a bush plane flight to a remote river. But as pointed out, it is expensive. Most our remote float trips are 10-14 days long. Amazing in every way. But the bush plane is usually $1800-2400. That is after getting to the hub town in Alaska with your gear, rafts, etc.. But there is nothing else like it.
