American Creek

Fish and Float Alaska

Trip Overview

We will provide detailed packing lists for all your personal items and we will take care of everything else, camping and rafting gear, food, and all fishing equipment if needed. We provide a professional guide for every 2 guests who will row the boat, cook, and help you catch plenty of fish. An inclusive list of what to bring will be emailed to you.


Arrive in Anchorage anytime before 6:00 AM on the day of your departure for your 7:00 AM check-in at Lake & Peninsula Airlines (LPA).

LPA is located on Merrill Field airstrip at 1740 E. 5th Ave., (907) 345.2228 We will arrange this flight for you but you will need to pay for it via cash or credit card once you get there. The $498 round-trip fare includes 70 lbs. of luggage. Excess luggage will be charged at a rate of $0.92/lb. LPA is an excellent family-run air charter business and this will be one of the most spectacular flights you will ever take.

We will have a mid-morning pick-up on the river for a Beaver flight back to Iliamna where we will unload gear and head to the Iliamna airstrip. Pick-up times will typically be mid-day and communicated by your pilot. Arrival time will be dependent upon the weather.


Fish & float does mean you will be camping on the river. Tents and cots will be provided but you will need to bring a sleeping bag.
