The Gulkana River is a non-glacial tributary to the Copper River. The Gulkana River has an appealing uniqueness because it is a "blue" water river in the land of glacial silt and muddy water. Both the Copper River king salmon and Copper River Red Salmon run the Gulkana River. Salmon Grove offers a stunning full or half-day fishing adventure on the Gulkana River for the famous copper river salmon. This trip runs a lower stretch of the Gulkana River allowing anglers to position themselves in the prime locations to catch the early Copper River salmon runs. The June king salmon run on the Gulkana River will produce chrome king salmon that are among the best tasting fish. The red salmon run August and September. This unique fishing experience is a great option for children, first timers and experts! Depending on the time of your visit it may be possible to fish the Gulkana for red salmon, king salmon, arctic grayling and rainbow trout. The Gulkana is unlike any other Copper River tributary and is the most beautiful and scenic with lots of wildlife to see. The Gulkana River should be on your list of to-do Alaska fishing trips.
