River Transportation:

We offer scenic jet boat rides to "The Glacier Camp", canoe drop offs and pickup.

The area is great for bird viewing of Arctic Warbler, Smith's Long-spur, Long-tailed Jaeger, Whimbrel, Surfbird, Lapland Longspur, Horned Lark, Short-eared Owl, Wandering Tattler, Gyrfalcon and much more. A walk north along BLM's Maclaren Summit Trail can be very productive. There are also trumpeter swans and various other waterfowl in the lakes and ponds along the route.

There is great fishing for grayling and lake trout. Wildlife viewing is spectacular.

Alaska fishing
Fishing Alaska - Try your luck fishing the many rivers and streams containing arctic grayling. The lakes abound with lake trout and burbot (some call a poor mans lobster, by its white flesh and taste).
