We love to talk about Alaska and outdoor recreation!
We can even help you plan your trip. Don’t hesitate to call or text with questions about our tours or other adventure opportunities.
Your Alaska Adventures guide will pick you and your group up at your hotel at the arranged time the day of your fishing trip. We want to be on the river early to take advantage of fish that have moved in through the night.
When conditions allow, we’ll have a grill available to cook a fillet or two for an amazing fresh riverside snack.
Depending on how far from Anchorage we’re fishing, we’ll be on the river between 3 & 5 hours. You can expect to be back at your hotel between 1 & 3pm.
Alaska Salmon Fishing Trip 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.
- 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 tour 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 at the river 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, polarized sunglasses, water bottle and your preferred bug spray and sunscreen for example.
- Bring your shades. It can be surprisingly bright on the river, with the sun’s rays reflecting from every direction. Polarized sunglasses will help you see fish through the glare of the water’s surface. A hat with a bill can help keep the sun out of your eyes, and ease the eye strain from a long day watching the water. Both hat and sunglasses are a strongly recommended safety precaution in case a salmon lets go of your lure and sends it back in your direction.
- We’ll have bottled water, bug spray and sunscreen in the van. You’re welcome to bring your preferred variety.
- Feel free to give us a call if you have additional questions or concerns.
