Here at AK Fish Charters we offer a unique personal experience. We are not a large company with the main goal of filling as many seats possible, or flooding the river with as many fisherman as we can. Your guide Aaron is focused on safe, responsible, quality fishing trips on remote rivers in the Copper river basin of Alaska. This is not your regular combat fishing experience!
Aaron grew up in a small town in Upstate New York chasing world class trout, salmon, and steelhead in Lake Ontario and its tributaries. As a young boy, Alaska has always been a final destination as he grew up reading articles about Alaskas great fishing adventures in various sporting magazines. Working on Charter boats and guiding the tributaries of New York throughout his teens and 20s for trout and salmon was rewarding but he needed bigger adventure. He Joined the Army and was active for 8 years as a combat medic with various duty stations and deployments over seas. In 2012 he was stationed at Ft. Wainright Alaska in Fairbanks! It wasn't a hard decision to stay and make it a permanent home. Aaron Has been fishing the Gulkana and Klutina river for king and red salmon since 2012 and knows every inch of those rivers intimately! Aaron is very passionate about the Copper River basin, its tributaries, and the fish that swim up it.
