Fly Fishing in Alaska
On January 3, 1959, President Eisenhower signed the official declaration making Alaska the 49th state. Covering over 371 million acres, the “Land of the Midnight Sun” contains one-fifth the total landmass of the Lower 48, more than half of America’s national park land, more that 80% of America’s national wildlife refuge land, more world-class fishing water than a person could possibly fish in a lifetime.
Once an angler has decided to plan an Alaska fly fishing trip to experience all that this amazing region has to offer – the huge rainbows, the grizzlies that are more than happy to share their waters, the runs of salmon so thick you can almost walk across their backs, and the incredibly long fishing days in a land where the sun hardly sets – the most important question becomes: “WHERE exactly do I go?” A quick search on the web produces a mile-long list of different Alaska fishing lodges and outfitters, all claiming to be the best and all showing plenty of photos of anglers lifting fat, trophy fish and smiling broadly at the camera. With so many options, how do you begin to narrow down the list and ultimately choose the perfect lodge or operation? Here at Yellow Dog, we feel strongly that we have the most diverse and ultimately work with the very best fly fishing lodges in Alaska.
