Alaska Fly Fishing Trip


Alaska Maps

Simply put, Alaska offers some of the best freshwater fly fishing in the world. Although almost every fishery in the lower 48 is under pressure, Alaska seems to be a second chance. The wilderness in Alaska is real - not just a tourist attraction. This rough hewn state of grandiose mountains and seldom seen waters is known for its incredible Salmon runs and thriving resident populations of Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Arctic Grayling, Northern Pike, Lake Trout and Dolly Varden.

While the remoteness of this vast, unconquered wilderness may seem to pose transportation problems; travel in Alaska is actually one of the highlights. Nothing shakes up your sense of normalicy like landing a plane in water, fishing alongside bears, and endless summer days.


The biggest salmon in Alaska come from the Kenai River.

Kodiak Island has the best roadside fishing in Alaska.

Alaska is twice the size of Texas with a population of 620,000. That's 1.1 person per square mile!
