Alaska Fly Fishing

Also, the five different species of Salmon have different peak arrival times in each river. Therefore it is Sportquest Holidays extensive knowledge that makes sure we put you at the right lodge at the right time. Subject to your requirements.

Bristol Bay

Alaska Fly Fishing trips for Salmon & Trout fall into three main areas within the state of Alaska. The first and well-known region is Bristol Bay. Most of Bristol Bays rivers originate among the granite peaks of the Aleutian Range. They fall within the protection of the world-famous Katmai National park. These rivers are famous among fly fishing anglers all over the world. The list of waterways includes Brooks River, Moraine Creek, Lower Talarik Creek, Kulik, Idavain, Copper River, Gibraltar, Little Ku, Battle Creek, Agulawok River, Agulukpak River, Naknek River, Kvichak River, and Alagnak River. Many of our lodges that fall within this region are fly out lodges. Each day you will depart for a day of Alaska fly fishing with your guides. This region is considered the best for a good all-round mixture of species of Salmon. With Rainbows, Char, and Dollies all eager to eat your flies.

Southwest Alaska

The region of Southwest Alaska is home to some fantastic big river systems. Such as the Kanetok River, Gooodnews River, Arolik River, Aniak River, and Kisaralik River. Unlike the small streams of Bristol Bay, a fly fisher can fly in during the day. Then be back at the Alaska fly fishing lodge for a gourmet dinner in the evening. These are incredible boating rivers. This region is probably the best region for catching King Salmon on the fly. Unlike the other major King salmon rivers which are huge, these rivers are of a more manageable size. Containing gravel bottoms, and a moderate to swift flow, perfect for swing flies right on the bottom.

South Alaska

South-central Alaska is most famous for the Kenai River. However, as this is the most populated area in Alaska, this also means this vast river system gets heavily fished. Mainly by locals just looking to fill their freezers up with Salmon. Customers don’t tend to return here as there are very few fly-only fishing spots.
