The rivers and shoreline around Juneau host a wealth of fly fishing opportunities. From sea run Dolly Varden in the spring to pink and chum salmon in the summer and ending with silver salmon in the fall, there is something to cast a fly to from early May until late September.
If you are looking for a guided fly fishing trip, at this time there is only one outfitter in Juneau.
- A fly out fly fishing trip with Bearcreek Outfitters. www.juneauflyfishing.com. Bearcreek predominantly works with anglers arriving by cruise ship. They supply rods, reels, waders and flies along with a snack. The guides are good, they are helpful with novice anglers, and the trip is a lot of fun. Just the flight itself is amazing. If you are traveling alone they can often fit you in with a group. They also can do custom trips if you have 3 or more anglers. See their website for current pricing and booking information.
We should note (since we get asked this a lot), there is no river oriented fly fishing guide service that operates in Juneau that guides via car or boat. Most of the streams that you can drive to in Juneau are on U.S. Forest Service land and commercial permits are not available for guiding on them. However, you can bring your own rod, reel and waders and fish any number of these streams. We are more than happy to suggest places to go and flies to use.
