A goal for some anglers is to get away from the crowds to fish, enjoying the solitude the outdoors can bring and all that comes with it. Unfortunately, the chase for solitude can get pretty spendy in Alaska.

In search of something that fits both bills – offering both remote access and affordability – Fish Alaska staff undertook a quest to find the answer in a day-trip fly-out, scheduling an overnight trip to the Kustatan River. The glacially-influenced Kustatan flows off the western side of Cook Inlet at the base of the Alaska Range, just a 20-minute flight from Soldotna. On site is a tent camp run by TC Guide Service.
