CHENA RIVER OVERNIGHT CAMPING FLOAT TRIP
- Person Two person minimum
“The River life” on a Float Trip down the upper Chena River in Fairbanks, Alaska
See the best of Fairbanks on this true Alaskan overnight outdoor camping and fishing trip! For adventurers, fly fishing experts, or spin fishermen, this truly is the perfect experience that delivers the whole family or your best fishing buddies a trip of a lifetime. No doubt, the Chena and Chatanika Rivers offer the best camping and fishing trip opportunities Fairbanks and the Interior of Alaska have to offer.
After we pick you up at your local hotel or residence, we take you on a short van ride out to the Chena or Chatanika River State Park areas. Here, we fish on a stretch of 8-12 river miles in the perfect stomping grounds for the beginner fisherman and camper or the expert fly fishing enthusiast chasing those trophy arctic grayling. Not only do you get to see wildlife and the spawning of wild Alaskan salmon, but you also experience some of Alaska’s finest and most scenic river countries. Great food and evening campfire storytelling round out this bucket list adventure!
Bring your adventurous spirit, and we will take care of great food (BF/LU/DI), all fishing/camping/safety equipment, and first-class guiding on the river.

BUY your FISHING LICENSE ONLINE here: http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/Store/
OR you can also buy physical licenses at these stores (make sure to check for opening/holiday hours): Big Ray’s, Sportsman’s Warehouse, Frontier Outfitters, Walmart.
Online Purchase Instructions: Buying a fishing license online is a simple process: Each participating Angler 16 years or older in age, is required to carry a valid Alaskan fishing license with them while fishing (no exceptions). You will only need a 1 day (24h) sport fishing license. You do NOT need a king salmon stamp. Day licenses are $15. After buying your license online you receive an email from Alaska Fish and Game (ADFG) with the electronic (pdf) copy of your license. You can also still print out the license or you can simply save them on your phone. You will need to save the license in order to sign the license, but also to be able to still pull it up when you do not have cell/data reception in remote ice fishing locations. To save, either take a screenshot or save a copy to your “files” app on your phone. Bring a picture ID and the fishing license with you on the tour.
Licenses still need to be signed: To sign on your phone use the edit – pencil/draw function and sign using your fingertip. Only signed licenses with the accurate date & time (24h from start time of tour) are accepted.
Be aware: It is your responsibility to acquire and provide a valid Alaskan fishing license when asked by a guide, wild life trooper (game warden), park ranger, or any other legal authority. Failing to provide the fishing license can result in being denied participation in a tour, being fined, or denied the future ability to acquire a valid fishing license in Alaska.
