Enjoy a fly fishing trip in a scenic area that feels secluded even though it is close to town -- meaning less travel time and more time on the river.
This trip is ideal for everyone, even beginners, who want to get out in the water and do some fly-fishing without a lot of fuss.
Begin by gearing up with waders, boots, rod, reel and tools. Your guide will set up an appropriately sized rod for the fish that are running and will provide you with the best flies for catching them.
Sitka-area rivers are small, gravel-bottom rivers with nice features and pools in which to fish. Species vary by time of year, but the most common are Dolly Varden and pink salmon. The early season may have opportunities for steelhead and rainbow trout.
All fishing is on a catch-and-release basis on this enjoyable, all-inclusive, no-hassle, easy-wade fly-fishing experience.
