Alaska Fishing Safrai

Alaska, one of the last frontiers is wild and beautiful where fishermen share the water with the mighty bear. The Katmai National Park, which towers over the Naknek river below is home to caribou, wolves, bears, and bald eagles and many other wildlife are frequently sighted. Just south of the Alaska Peninsula is Mt Penlik, a 5,000-foot active volcano, providing a stunning backdrop for fishing !

The choice of species depends on the season. Early on in June Rainbow trout, Dolly Varden, Char and Grayling are feasting on the salmon fry heading for the ocean. As well as an abundance of massive insect hatches. This can make the dry fly fisherman’s dream come true.  Almost at the same time, millions of Sockeye and King Salmon begin flooding into the rivers as July is the height of the Sockeye and King salmon run. At the same time the Chum and Pink salmon start appearing, the latter arriving in millions. The King Salmon fishing ends before the beginning of August begins and as soon as they begin to spawn the Rainbow, Char, Dolly Varden and others start feeding almost non-stop on the salmon eggs and are easy prey for the fly fishermen. During August the Silver Salmon are running and by mid September they leave.  In September and October the Rainbow, Char and Grayling are abundant, and this is the time to land the largest Rainbow who has been feeding non stop since June! If you tire of catching these monsters, take a day off and fish for 40lb – 100lb+ Giant Halibut off the coast

Much of the fishing is reached by float plane which is normally included in the packages offered by the fisheries.  A weeks fishing (6 days) fully inclusive of daily fly-outs by float plane is approximately US$6,000 (£3500) The same trip without fly-outs, but with a boat and guide would be US$4,200 (£2440). Both above trips include the following: Transportation between airport and lodge, deluxe accommodation, all meals, beverages, beer and wine, guides, boats and fishing equipment, selected flies and lures, waders, wading boots and hip boots, cleaning and freezing of fish and fly outs depending on the package selected.

Not included, international air fare to destination Alaska, fishing licenses and gratuities for staff at your discretion
