Hunting and fishing experience at Willow Air: We offer one-on-one brown bear hunts in unit 16. There are so many brown bears in unit 16 B that the limit has gone from 1 bear every 4 years to two bears a year to try to get the numbers down. Starting in the spring of 2014 we were able to harvest brown bears at our black bear bait sites. We have been hunting black bears in the spring over bait for years and have had problems keeping the brown bears off the baits. We are hunting an area that has a large brown bear population and plenty of fish to keep them occupied. We also offer guided moose hunts. Click here for quick link country guide,.
The salmon fishing is incredible here! Kings range from 18 to 60 lbs!!!! It is not uncommon to tire out way before the fishing does! If Kings are the angler’s goal, plan to fish between June 10th - July 13th. If Silver Salmon are the goal then July 25th - August 20th is most prime. Please note the rainbow trout fishing is excellent just a short hike up stream, full of pockets, riffles and huge old glacial boulders. Fly fishermen and spin fishermen will both do very well at these spots. Daily flyout options are limitless, getting the angler to all species of fish desired.
