Denali Fly Fishing Guides specializes in Arctic Grayling, the sailfish of the North. The North flowing Nenana River drainage on the doorstep of our Cantwell office offers bountiful natural grayling stocks. These ravenous surface feeders are thrilling to catch on a dry fly whether you are a seasoned fly fisherman or it’s your first time with a fly rod.
We also offer opportunities for Rainbow Trout about an hour and a half away. Full day trips offer a chance at catching rainbows in the Chulitna River drainage. If you have fished for stocked Bows in the past then you haven’t seen anything like these silver bullets! Mobility is essential for chasing Rainbows in this drainage as some walking will be required.
Denali Fly Fishing Guides offer personalized and fully outfitted fly fishing excursions into the valley between the Alaska Range and the Talkeetna Mountain Ranges. Trip opportunities include: 4 1/2 hour, 6 hour, 8 1/2 hour (full day) and multi day trips using lightweight fly gear pursuing Arctic Grayling and other fish in the area. All trips, except float fishing trips, are on foot near small mountain streams offering a true wilderness experience within sight of Denali. Beginners are welcome and will get a full fly casting lesson as well as an introduction to the basics of fly selection, catch and release techniques, and reading water. Trips include round trip transportation from area hotels and lodges to our office on the bank of the Nenana River.
Denali Fly Fishing Guides will take you to some of the most scenic water found in Alaska. We fish the Nenena River and many of its tributaries including: Fish Creek, Jack River, Brushkana Creek, Seattle Creek, Brushkazna Creek, Wells Creek, and many other wild rivers and creeks!
