Remote Fly Fishing for Alaskan Salmon & Trout

This is a catch and release fishing charter
Do you have what it takes to land a salmon on a fly rod? This Ketchikan sport fishing shore excursion will take you to a remote salmon stream in the Tongass National Forest, where you will have the opportunity to hook into many wild Alaskan Salmon and Trout.

Your guide, Rick Collins, will meet you when your ship arrives. From there you will be transported to a wilderness fishing stream by boat, or Alaskan floatplane. Once you are streamside Rick will provide casting lessons (if needed), help you locate the fish, and set you up with the gear fish like.

 Fishing typically occurs within the section of stream very near the beach. This allows for the opportunity to catch bright ocean fresh salmon. The close proximity to the beach also reduces the amount of hiking required. However, due to uneven terrain, limited hiking, etc. it is recommend that clients be in good physical condition. Freshwater spin casting rods are available on request.
