Ice Fishing Adventure Tours Near Anchorage

Our guided ice fishing tours near Anchorage are a unique Alaska wintertime adventure. Our ice fishing trips include an insulated, heated ice fishing shelter to keep you warm and ready to fish for Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, Salmon, or Northern Pike.

Detailed Description:

On this half-day tour we’ll fish either in the Anchorage area for rainbow trout, dolly varden and landlocked salmon, or we may decide to drive a bit out of town to pursue a little larger, more voracious quarry, northern pike. We’re an Alaska Department of Fish & Game registered guide service, with licensed guides that will get you on fish! We’ll fish from an insulated and heated pop-up blind, so you’ll be comfortable on even the coldest days.  We’ll provide rods and reels and all the tools needed to pursue fish through feet of ice.


An Alaska Adventure guide will pick your group up at your hotel.

Tour start times vary, but tour duration is about 3 to 4 hours. Depending on how far from Anchorage we’re fishing,

We’ll be on the ice between 2 & 3 hours. 

Ice Fishing Tour Notes:

  • Purchasing your fishing license: State of Alaska fishing regulations require everyone over the age of 15 years old to have a sport fishing license. You’ll want to purchase a one-day non-resident sport fishing license for every angler over 15.  A King Salmon stamp is NOT necessary. 
  • A fishing license must be signed to be valid.  The most convenient way of doing this is by using the check box to DIGITALLY SIGN your license during the purchase process. Alternatively, you can take a screenshot of your digital license and sign it in your photo editing app.
  • With flight schedule changes happening more and more frequently, we recommend waiting until you’re confident you’ll make it to Anchorage in time for your scheduled trip before you purchase your fishing license.
  • Because we fish several places over a wide geographic area, you’ll want to be prepared for varying weather conditions.
  • Dress in layers.  When the weather turns out a little different than forecast, the sun comes out, or wind picks up, the ability to adjust to the conditions can make your time on the ice much more enjoyable.
  • Bring a small backpack or other means of carrying the few things you may want to keep available while we’re out, a hat, sunglasses, and a water bottle for example.
  • Bring your shades.  It can be bright on the ice, with the sun’s rays reflecting from every direction. 
  • Bottled water will be provided.  Feel free to bring additional snacks or drinks as you’d like.
  • Feel free to give us a call if you have additional questions or concerns

Anchorage Area Ice Fishing Tours FAQs

Ice fishing in Southcentral Alaska is usually open from November through April.
Most often, we fish lakes in or near Anchorage for Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden, and Landlocked Salmon. Alaska Fish & Game has stocked these fish in most local lakes.
At times, we use a pop-up ice fishing shelter or “tent,” which is mobile and gives us the best opportunity to go where fish are as they migrate to various microclimates within the lakes we fish. We don’t use a constructed, semi-permanent shelter – these are very rarely used in Alaska.
On certain days, ice fishing outside can be very pleasant. For the colder days, we use a portable, pop-up ice fishing shelter with a propane or diesel heater to keep it nice and toasty. On days when it’s 0° to 10°f (-18°c to -12°c), we can stay comfortable in short-sleeved T-shirts in the tent.
Ice fishing on a lake is Alaska is very safe. It only takes a little over 2″ of ice to support a person’s weight. We never fish on ice that’s thinner than about 4″, which is sufficient to support up to a couple thousand pounds. By mid-winter, the thickness of the ice in Southcentral Alaska is measured in feet, not inches, strong enough to safely support a semi-truck.

We have a limited selection of winter gear to help supplement your winter apparel on an ice fishing trip. Please inquire if you need specific items like boots or snow pants.
