Ketchikan Guided Fishing Tour

Take advantage of Alaska's ideal fly fishing conditions with this guided fishing tour! Your guide will pick you up from the dock and take you to get outfitted with all the fishing gear you'll need. Then you'll be ready to start reeling them in!

You'll be fishing mainly for rainbow trout, cutthroat trout, and Dolly Varden trout. Ketchikan is a fishing hotspot, famous for its abundant populations of marine life. We'll drive you out to a peaceful spot where you can get away from the crowds of downtown.

If you're not a fishing expert, don't worry. You'll have help from your experienced fly fisherman guide. Fly fishing utilizes small, lightweight, artificial "flies" for bait, which are essentially an imitation of a bug or a small fish.

Get ready to sit back, relax, and enjoy a peaceful day of catching fish in the beautiful wilderness of Southeast Alaska.
