Alaska Flyfishing

I would like to fish for Arctic Char, Grayling & trout this summer. I will be traveling by myself & do not want to spend more than (2) days in any location. I would hire a well qualified fishing guide & need to know if I bring my own gear or gear is furnished by the guide.

Hi, Michaellsmith, I'd suggest you also post directly on the Alaska forum.

You'll find it here, click on the blue link below:


It will help if you post how many days you will be in Alaska and where you will be flying in.

Bringing your own gear is the most advised thing while fishing. wish you the best but uganda too has got trout fish spots.

I have only trout fished in the Inside Passage of Alaska. There is good Trout Fishing on Admiralty Island. There is a number of lakes you can fly to that have USFS cabins to rent. There are also 2 lodges on the island that could help you out. They are Whalers Cove Lodge and Thayer Lake Lodge. For Admiralty Island, I would recommend 2 rods, a 4 weight and maybe a 7.

A lot of outfitters provide tackle and gear, but not all.

If you have an idea of which rivers you want to fish, do some web searches for outfitters offering those spots and see if gear is provided. And as half-Brit mentioned, you should also check out the Alaska forum, search a bit and perhaps posts questions as well.

Alaska is known for great fishing almost state wide, but two areas come to mind - out on the Denali highway as well as the Kenai Peninsula. Posting on the Alaska forum will give you more feed back and help, if you are interested. :)
