| 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
We 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
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!
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

potatoes, sweet breads and coffee cakes. Then we strike camp and

grilled fish, hamburgers, steaks, stew or whatever trips your
taste buds. Evenings are “On your own” to fish,

This is a truly Wilderness Experience!
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.
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
Remember, the "Wilderness" is where you want to be when you come to fish in Alaska!
