The Deshka River starts at the foot of the Alaska Range and is a clear water river, not glacier fed. The Deshka is a premier Alaska freshwater river. It is well known for its great runs of King salmon (Chinook) and Silver salmon (Coho)as well as large numbers of Rainbow Trout. The river also has large runs of Pink Salmon on even years plus opportunities to fish for Grayling and Northern Pike. The Deshka is truly Alaska fishing at its best.
Our location on the river above the rock garden offers isolation from the crowds and remote fishing you won't find in many other places. Most of the time we have the river to ourselves. Our jet boats give us access to miles of river and side streams and offers our fishing guests a choice of fishing from the boat or putting on a pair of waders and getting into some great river fishing.
