Approximately 6 Hours
Experience fly fishing on a remote Sitka river accessed by custom-built aluminum runabout. This mode of transportation ensures easy access to the riverbank and a fast, comfortable ride.
Depending upon what river your guide decides is best to fish on the day, you will have time to hike, wade, explore and fish on this six-hour excursion.
Fish for species in season -- steelhead, salmon, trout and char could be running. Dolly Varden are available when there are salmon in the rivers.
All wading and fishing gear, snacks, beverages, and a shoreside lunch are provided. You'll return to the ship totally hooked on remote Alaska fly fishing.
