Alaska's Premier Fly Fishing Source

Juneau has a wealth of road-accessible fly fishing spots. They are generally uncrowded and easy to get to. We have two maps on our site you can print out. One shows the entire Juneau road system and the other has some detailed maps of popular spots. Go to the Juneau News Page and scroll down to the bottom. They are listed as Map #1 and Map #2. 

The key to understanding Juneau fly fishing (and all Alaskan fly fishing for that matter) is realizing that all fishing is based around the life cycle of the salmon. Different salmon enter the rivers at different times of the year. For an overview of how the Juneau season progresses see our Southest Alaska page.  

Likewise, Dolly Varden and trout will move from freshwater to saltwater and back again in search of food. In the spring time it is out migrating salmon fry they are after and in the summer it is salmon eggs and flesh. In other words, these fish move around a lot!

We post a weekly Juneau fish report on line that can help you keep tabs on what is going on. It covers what is happening, hot flies and recommended techniques. Keep an eye on it and you will be in the game!
