Big Silver Salmon
Watch NOW on!!!
This video will bring you along for an unguided float-fishing trip down one of Alaska’s finest fishing streams, the Goodnews River. The Goodnews River starts in the remote Ahklun Mountains of the Togiak Wilderness, where the nearest road that leads anywhere is 350 miles away! Join us on a float from the mountains to the sea.Grizzly Face-Off

We weren’t the only ones fishing! See how this encounter turned out. Included is footage of a bear plunging into the river and emerging with a salmon. Also see a trio of bear cubs playing, some nice caribou bulls and bull moose footage.



The Goodnews flows through beautiful scenery through-out it’s length, and during this September float the fall colors were at their peak.

The Goodnews in September is home to the beautiful “Leopard Rainbows,” silver salmon, “Arctic Charr,” lake trout and grayling; all of which are caught on film.

“This is a super video!!”
Tom J., Sebastopol, CA

“I’ll be doing the Goodnews in July so it was nice to have a “sneak peek” of the river. My friends and I enjoyed it immensely! You fellas caught some real beauties out there, and the wildlife and scenery looked fantastic!” John D., Hopedale, MA

“My husband has about worn out this video. He loaned it to our neighbor, who in turn went on to tell everyone in our small town about it. More than once I’d hear someone recounting your adventure, most of it accurate, but when I heard about you hauling an 800 pound bear along for “lunch meat” I had to laugh!!”
Berni L., Springville, NY

I could tell you more, but pictures say a thousand words. The following series of thumbnails are screenshots from the video.
