Gustavus Alaska Freshwater Fishing

While saltwater fishing is what makes the Glacier Bay-Icy Strait area famous, it is also home to various freshwater systems filled with a variety of fish to catch. With Salmon, Dolly Varden, wild Steelhead, and Cutthroat Trout, Southeast Alaska is a premier freshwater fishing destination. This region offers blue ribbon freshwater angling in various tidal and mountain settings interwoven in a tapestry of remote islands that share no road connection with the remainder of the state. Chances are you may not see another person for the entire day, other than those in your group.

Our freshwater guides are experienced wilderness guides and competent, enthusiastic teachers. Our fishing packages are custom tailored and designed for anglers based on their interests and individual skill level. This allows the opportunity to fish a variety of different water types and species and enjoy unparalleled success. You’re welcome to bring your own gear, or we’ll provide it. Both fly and spinning gear are available.

Whether you’re looking for a single day trip or an all-inclusive, multi-day trip we have something to fit your needs.
