There are literally dozens and dozens of companies worldwide offering sportfishing tours in Alaska and Russia nowadays. The majority of these are reputable organizations capable of providing a satisfactory angling vacation. But very few can match us for the kind of fishing experience we offer and the number of years we have been in business. We have been doing tours for 35 years and in the process have developed an unmatched expertise in delivering the very finest wild fishing and intimate wilderness experiences possible. No fishing lodge or semi-permanent camp working the same tired stretches of water day in and day out with noisy jet boats can possibly offer you the same kind of experience we can floating remote wild rivers and sampling untouched water each day! It’s that simple. And since we don’t wholesale our trips, we can offer prices that are among the most competitive in the business, bar none. You can certainly pay a whole lot more for your fishing vacation, but you won’t get a better trip! Trust us on that! Contact us for a list of references, talk to some of our former clients or ask other folks in the fly fishing business, and you’ll find that our reputation is untouchable. We are the best because, more than anything, we love to do this, have the highest personal standards and have been in business longer than most everyone else!...Read More
Ultimate Rivers is an Alaska-based enterprise, in business since 1983. We have always strived to provide the highest quality wilderness sports fishing adventures, here and abroad, at the most competitive prices. In addition to developing an outstanding Alaska program, we were among the first American tour operators to pioneer joint ventures in Russia during the late 1980s, concentrating our efforts in the Far East provinces most accessible by direct flights from Alaska.
Goo Vogt’s Siberian taimen program based out of Khabarovsk in the 1990s was very successful, garnering five IGFA World Records, including the largest fish ever taken on rod and reel. The Kamchatka program, begun in the early 1990s, featured float trips on the finest rivers in the southern and central province, along with volcano treks, visits to hot springs and trips to rural villages for cultural interaction. With our considerable involvement and passion, we have tirelessly promoted tourism and business and cultural exchanges between our two neighboring countries.
If you’re looking to really experience Alaska or Kamchatka without all the BS just hardcore access to the best rivers best guides and great guests this is the outfitter. Book a trip down a Wild Alaska River with Renee and you’ll have memories for a lifetime. The best
It was an absolutely epic trip. You will probably never quite understand how much we (Hunter and I) enjoyed it, , but I can say that just about every day he hands me a cup of water and says… “hey, go start the fire with this, but use the dry ...Read More water”… and then we have a bit of a laugh… haha… Rene, you are an absolute icon in my mind and I sincerely appreciate the time and attention you afforded me and my son.
