While you fish you can expect to enjoy watching eagles and their young fly over head. You can also expect to see lots of bears and their young fishing along side you and your group. The bears at big River Lakes love to jump off rocks, swim and fish for salmon. All while teaching their young to survive the Alaskan wilderness on their own. If time and weather allows, your guide has a portable grill on the boat and will cook a fresh salmon for you! As if that was not enough, your pilot picks you back up from where he dropped you off. As long as time and weather permits, you will be taken on a glacier tour of double glacier where Mt. Redoubt can be seen from the air. This is the perfect trip for any one with interest to visit Alaska. It truly is the ultimate trip to add to your package.

Crescent Lake West is a must see destination and you do not want to leave Alaska without visiting. Crescent Lake is nestled in between magnificent mountains in Lake Clark National Park.

On this trip you will be with your experienced guide for about 4.5 hours while fishing, bear viewing and enjoying the untouched land scape.

Tons of bear inhabit this location from July- September. You can expect to see bears meandering down the lake shore with their cubs, teaching them to fish and survive on their own. Sockeye salmon begin running the river system in July and the Coho salmon begin in August.

Lake trout and char swim these waters and they're a ton of fun to catch and release! You can expect to be one of very few people visiting this location on any given day.
