WELCOME TO Gulkana River Private Preserve
Not Open to the public
Access By Permit Only

The Gulkana River King salmon season runs from June 1st to July 19th, while the Klutina River (20 miles to the south) season is extended until July 31st.  Plan your Alaska salmon fishing vacation early to reserve your spot.

The prime part of the world famous Copper River Sockeye run on the Gulkana River starts roughly at the end of the King Salmon season and continues until the end of August.  Huge runs of these Copper River Sockeye pass by our park and hold up in several holes along our 750 ft. of shoreline.  You can catch them directly from our banks or enjoy a float trip with our experienced and knowledgeable guides.  Only the owners and lifetime permit holders will be allowed on the park after July 20th.

Fishing for all other species is allowed through the summer. 

Aside from excellent fishing, the area abounds with wildlife and breathtaking scenery.  A variety of amenities including hotels, B&B’s, restaurants, gas stations and Laundromats are located nearby.

The Gulkana River was designated as wild and scenic in 1980 by the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.  The abundant wild life along the Gulkana includes bald eagles, moose, caribou, and bear.

  •    Months of operation - June 1st until September 1st.  Only lifetime permit holders are allowed in the            park.

Come stay with us and avoid the crowds while you fish for some of the world’s largest king salmon, as well as sockeye, trout, steel head and gray-ling. Each season people from all over the lower 48 and many Alaska residents, as well as a number of foreign visitors managed to capture many King Salmon in the 40 to 45 pound range.  This was accomplished  from the banks of the Gulkana River.
