Kanektok River Camps, Alaska

"The Kanektok River, located in the famous Bristol Bay region of western Alaska, is dear to the hearts of Angling Destinations' staff. We have floated its prolific and remote waters many times. If you desire great fishing in a remote location, this Kanektok River Camp qualifies as one of the finest fishing destinations in Alaska. The camp hosts only 12 guests per week and is the only camp situated on the upper Kanektok. Plenty of hot water, comfortable accommodations in weatherproof tents and excellent, hearty meals make this the finest remote fishing camp in all of Alaska."

Linehan Outfitting Company, Montana

"Located in the northwest corner of the state near the town of Libby, the breathtaking Kootenai is Linehan's home river. Full of rainbow and cutthroat trout, the Kootenai is consider primarily a dry fly river. Guests have the option of two types of accommodations: log cabins in nearby Yaak or the spacious Kootenai River House near Libby that can accommodate up to six anglers comfortably. If floating the prolific Kootenai is not enough to satiate the hungriest of anglers, the Yaak and Clark Fork are also part of Tim and Joanne Linehan's fishing lineup. This is one of the best-kept secrets in Montana."
