DescriptionEnjoy a half day or full day fishing for trout or salmon near Juneau. We’ll pick you up and transfer you to our shop where you’ll meet your guide, be outfitted in waders and rain gear, as well as receive fishing equipment from Sage and Ross. 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.
You’ll fish with the assistance of your guide and enjoy the beauty, wildlife and solitude of your selected stream.
All of our guides are well-versed in providing casting and fishing instruction regardless of your skill level. Each is certified in first aid and CPR, and highly experienced in wilderness safety. Alaska’s long winters give them the opportunity to travel and fish throughout Europe, Costa Rica, Belize and beyond.
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.
WHAT TO BRING
Summer temperatures range from the low 50’s to the upper 70’s, however rain is often a factor. Please bring along high-quality, waterproof rain shells (however, we have them if you don’t), head wear and layered clothing. We recommend fleece or wool for at least one layer and synthetic under layers (avoid cotton) while fishing. Polarized glasses and waterproof cameras are also recommended.
THE WILDERNESS AND WILDLIFE
Aside from great fishing opportunities, your trip will give you the chance to view and photograph a variety of wildlife in their natural settings. Eagles, other birds and harbor seals are commonly sighted on our trips. Brown and black bears are seen frequently, and we occasionally see moose, Sitka black-tailed deer, wolves and otters as well.
