Service said “in the land of the midnight sun” there is a feeling that comes
over you he called the “Spell of the Yukon”.
Of all the places we have run trips the Yukon is the most compelling.
We have run wilderness canoe expeditions on several major rivers in the
Yukon and have never been disappointed. Most
of these trips are very remote in a wilderness that few can match.
There are 190,000 square miles in the Yukon and outside of Whitehouse
there are less than 10,000 people. Most
of them live in a few small towns such as Dawson, Ross River, and Mayo.
Moose and Caribou far outnumber the humans.
The average rainfall in the Yukon is only 13 inches a year.
This is why we believe that we have very few bugs. (This is not Alaska)
This also makes for reasonably good weather in August.
We will float 100 miles down river and fish, take pictures, hike, wildlife watch and relax.Your Adventure begins at Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, Canada. We will be airlifted into a high mountain pond (Woodside) and tributary of the Pelly river. Meandering down river as we fish hitting new water to test your fishing skills and new scenery to keep you spellbound. We will stop along our river journey at remote cabins on the Pelly Lakes to fish. On the Pelly River we will experience occasional rapids. We will take out at the village of Ross River on the last day of the trip and be back in Whitehorse for supper. The trip includes everything upon departing Whitehorse until we return to Whitehorse.
We did an exploratory canoe fishing trip in 2000 to the headwaters of the famous Pelly River. Over a hundred years ago explorers used the Pelly as a link to the Yukon River, to reach the gold fields of the Klondike. We have an ultimate getaway amid high alpine meadows with mountain peaks that plunge to virtually untouched rivers, streams and lakes. On the Pelly you don't go "fishing" you go "catching."
