Thread: Fly out from Anchorage for some fishing?

    Default Fly out from Anchorage for some fishing?

    Hi guys,

    I figure this is a good place to ask my question. Ive got the itch real bad. Ive been planning my trip to Alaska for a few weeks now, and thats all I can think about!

    I was hoping to find someone who does day trips out of Anchorage for some semi-remote salmon fishing. Well, I say 'semi' because I know many people in AK own small planes, but if I could do a day where I can escape the crowds with my brother for some hot salmon action, that would be awesome.

    OR

    A few people have mentioned Alexander Creek for some awesome pike fishing as well.

    Im in Anchorage from June 1st until august 2nd. I would be with my brother from July 5th until 14th, and the rest of the time, it would be just me.

    I figure its worth seeing if someone was planning a trip that wouldnt mind splitting costs with.

    You can PM me if you prefer.

    All the best,

    Jonathan

    Default Not positive

    on the regulations/laws, but I don't think that you can legally share the costs unless the flyer has a transporter license - maybe the friends that have taken me just don't want me to pay - but they have told me that I cannot even pay for fuel costs - - am sure that others here will know the real truth.

    there are several charters that should be able to put you on fish - but nothing is guarranteed when it comes to fishing.....Nets could come in the day you fish - the fish could run through quick if the water comes up and you could miss them - or maybe you could wear your elbow out catching monsters. The flight alone is worth the trip...you get to see the country better - and more of it from the air in a small plane.

    You can share costs (fuel, oil, rent) as long as the pilot pays a full share (pilot and one other, pilot must pay half, for example).

    From the FAR's:

    Sec. 61.113 - Private pilot privileges and limitations: Pilot in command.


    (c) A private pilot may not pay less than the pro rata share of the operating expenses of a flight with passengers, provided the expenses involve only fuel, oil, airport expenditures, or rental fees.

    Could you please provide a link to these rules? I have a friend with a plane and I don't want to get him trouble, yet at the same time I want to make sure I pay my fair share of the costs. Thanks

    Default FAA regs

    just go to faa website and look it up. search for the specific reg super easy, I do it all the time.

    yes there are plenty of folksout of anc that will take you on a trip like that. check rusts, as they are big enough to know where thefish are. most operators off of lake hood will be able to put you on fish.
