Enjoy a half day or full day fishing for trout or salmon near Juneau. You will be picked up and transferred to the shop where you’ll meet your guide, be outfitted in waders and rain gear, as well as receive fishing equipment. After a safety briefing, you’ll embark on a scenic flight by floatplane. Upon landing, the gear will be assembled and casting instructions provided to novices.
With access to a wide array of accessible streams, your guides are able to select the best location suited to your particular group -one that offers the best fishing opportunities available on any given day. Streams in Southeast Alaska tend to be small and relatively short but allow ample room for fly-casting. Efforts are focused in estuaries and the deeper holes and runs in the first two miles of the stream corridor.
Other groups are rarely, if ever, encountered.
Southeast Alaska is blessed with abundant runs of Wild Pacific Salmon, fast-action for Dolly Varden (char), Cutthroat Trout and trophy-sized Steelhead. Fishing opportunities for these species are dictated by run timing, which tends to be fairly consistent from year to year.
