Alaska fly fishing guides
Virtual Trip - Lower Base Camp - Kanektok River with Dave Duncan and Sons - Alaska

The Anchorage airport is the hub for flights to Bethel. Everyone going to the Duncan camp(s) will catch a flight from here. Most folks arrive the day before, but since we were just coming in from Seattle, we flew in Saturday morning for the afternoon flight.

The flight to Bethel was delayed over two hours, but the good thing was that everybody was delayed together. We knew the Duncan crew would be waiting for us no matter how long it took. Same for our connecting flight to Quinhagak - they are used to delays, so are very flexible in their scheduling.


The Duncans sent out luggage tags to help make sure the bags end up at the right camp - red for Lower and blue for Upper.

Our Alaska air pilot on the 737 was telling us about the different mountain ranges and glaciers as we flew over them.

We took off from Seattle's airport at 6:00 am. Seattle to Anchorage, Anchorage to Bethel, Bethel to Quinhagak. The closer we got to Quinhagak, the smaller the aircraft.

We arrived at the Bethel airport, grabbed our luggage, then found the Grant Aviation vans out the backdoor of the Alaska Airlines terminal Click for a helpful hint- they took us to their terminal ( about 1/2 mile down the road) to check in for our 30 minute flight to Quinhagak. The check in here was a lot less formal than the other airports, no metal detectors or searches - just like the good old days.
