Alaska Fly-Out Fishing. Accessing remote fishing waters in Alaska using a floatplane will elevate your pursuit to an entirely different level. Since more than 90% of Alaska’s most fabled fishing waters are only accessible via floatplane, getting up in the air opens a myriad of spectacular Alaska fishing options. Mark Glassmaker is proud to offer several high-quality Alaska fishing trips to the West Side of Cook Inlet and beyond.
The majority of our full-day fly-out fishing trips go to destinations on the West Side of Cook Inlet, with the most popular location being Big River Lake, the Kustatan River, and Bachatna Creek. For the person that simply wants to experience the unmatched thrill of flying in an Alaska floatplane and experience almost everything remote Alaska fly out fishing has to offer in 6-7 hours, these adventures are tough to beat.
With bears, salmon, rugged peaks, and shimmering glaciers, The West Side of Cook Inlet is an incredible place. Flight time to Big River Lake and other popular destinations on the West Side of Cook Inlet is a mere 20 minutes, making this the most affordable single destination Alaska fly-out fishing option we offer.
For those looking for the ultimate one-day Alaska fishing experience, nothing can rival chartering a floatplane for the entire day and visiting more distant and/or multiple destinations. On these fly-out fishing trips, the plane stays with you and can travel much farther distances from our base in North Kenai. This expanded range opens up a number of incredible locations, all within a 2-hour flight radius. It gives you the freedom, privacy, and exclusivity to design your own fly out trip of a lifetime.
Of course, these incredible Alaska fly-out fishing destinations are ripe with some of the most memorable scenery in the world including wildlife, mountains, and glaciers. A shore-side lunch is also an integral element of these trips capping what most would consider a “bucket list” experience.
Below are a few all-day exclusive destinations we frequent and depending on the length of the flight, weather, etc., it is often possible to visit more than one destination in the day.
