The Fishing!

With access to a wide array of accessible streams, we 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. We focus our efforts 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.

Participants should be in good physical condition and able to walk over uneven ground for 1-2 miles in waders. Many of the streams we fish are remote and advanced medical support may not be possible in these locations.

As a conservation measure, all of our fishing is done on a catch-and-release basis with barb-less hooks.
