Ketchikan Guided Fly Fishing Tour

3 reviews

Excursion Overview

Grab a reel and enjoy one of Alaska's favorite past times

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.

Cyrus was a great guide and we had a fabulous experience fishing with him. The record (in our party of four) was fourteen fish with second place catching ten. We learned a lot and caught a lot. It was a spectacular day.

Our guide was fantastic. He basically saw that I was proficient and spent the entire time helping my younger son stay on fish. He also took multiple pictures and videos to share with us at the end of the day. I have already recommended this to friends if they go to Ketchikan.
