Talkeenta Denali View

| Guided Fishing Trips | Snow Vacation & Activity Packages

As a licensed Alaskan Fishing Guide with many years of fly fishing experience here and in Rockies of the lower 48, I understand that a fishing experience is as much about the anticipation as the trip itself. If you’ve fished in many other venues Fishing in Alaska is often better than a dream come true, whether pursuing the five species of Salmon on medium to heavy tackle (fly or spinning), fishing for large Rainbows with a “flesh” colored wet fly or, casting a #12 dry fly for Arctic Grayling on a #3 weight floating fly line.

Wilderness River Fishing Guides of Talkeetna, AK

Fishing Jet BoatWe offer Fishing Excursions, from one day Jet Trips on our “North River” Inboard Jet Boat up the Susitna, Chulitna or Talkeetna Rivers to one day Walk-In Trips in the nearby hills, to three day Float Trip Adventures in the Dutch Hills Basin with our modern inflatables.  Since Coming to Alaska we have been looking for a few really high quality remote Lakes and Streams where we could take our more Adventurous Guests who are interested in Superb Fishing, spending time in the Wilderness, and are looking for peace, quiet and adventure among some of the many beautiful places Alaska has to offer. With all five species of Salmon, Large Rainbows, Dolly Varden, huge Grayling, Lake Trout and Northern Pike sometimes available in the same fishery, we have discovered a few “fishin’ holes” that will live up to and sometimes exceed your; and our Expectations.


With our guests asking for different types of experiences we are making every effort to fine tune our guiding services to each fisherman and group.  With this in mind, we are no longer offering half-day fishing excursions.  Many half-day trips tend to be “Combat Fishing” with elbow to elbow fishermen and there is really no way that we can get you to a remote and truly wilderness fishery, teach the basics of fly fishing (if necessary), then get you into the fish in half a day without rushing and sacrificing something in the quality of the experience.

Our new Wilderness River Fishing Guides adventures offers the best Wilderness fishing of any in the Talkeetna area.  We are a small company with many years of fishing and guiding experience.  You’ll find no half-day, elbow-to-elbow “Combat Fishing” here.  We offer only the best quality Wilderness Fishing  available and we’ll cross paths with as few other fishermen as possible.


Our Fishing excursions also offer superb opportunities for photography, nature hikes, and wildlife viewing.  We’ll be happy to accommodate and guide you and your companions on these other opportunities if you would like to take a break from the superb fishing.

Keep in mind; our Fishing excursions are for activity oriented men and women who love the outdoors and want to be as far from “civilization” as possible for a  day or more. Minimum age of 14.
Please book early!

Peters Creek Float Package

Salmon Fishing

This is a full three day package and takes you into one of our areas most productive Rainbow, Arctic Grayling and Salmon streams. The fishing is superb and the stream and surrounding scenery is magnificent. If you like floating a stream, stopping periodically and catching our great Grayling, Rainbows and Salmon this is the trip for you. This trip is for fisherman who like to keep moving and don’t mind helping out a little if we have to go around (Portage) a few log jams or pull the inflatable across a sand or gravel bar a few times.

This is a truly Wilderness Experience!

Walk-In Fishing

One of the many experiences we afford our clients at Talkeetna Denali View Lodge & Cabins is a fully outfitted walk-in fishing experience. Our lodge happens to be in the midst of some of the finest fishing anywhere in North America. Only a few miles from Montana Creek, we are also located near the Susitna River, Sunshine Creek and many other excellent fisheries only minutes or a short drive away.

A quiet walk-in experience can be relaxing, exhilarating and extremely successful. Sometimes the fish are there just waiting to take a dry fly or, lunker Kings, Reds or Silvers will bite at nearly everything when protecting their “territory”. If you’re anything like us and hours in a stream with a fly rod in your hand seem like only minutes, simplicity may be excellence when angling in Alaska’s clear, cold and fast moving waters. I've done a lot of fishing in Alaska, particularly in the Talkeetna, Dutch Hills and Denali State Park areas. When the fish are “in” it can be pretty amazing. We base our walk-in rates and other excursions for party's of two. Minimum age of 14.

Jet Boat River Fishing

Sometimes, a well outfitted power boat is a real advantage, especially when the good fishing is remote or getting to those hard-to-get-to places requires some horsepower.  With our “North River” shallow-draft Jet Boat, we can access fisheries that only few others can.  We go to where the fish are; and the people are not!

Since we accommodate only small groups, we can also fine-tune a trip to fit your needs and style. There are pictures of the success of some our fishing trips on our new web-site and the Photos page. We can send you more if you like. Minimum age of 14.

Remember,  the "Wilderness" is where you want to be when you come to fish in Alaska!
