Fly Fishing

in Alaska

When traveling to Alaska tourists and anglers alike have many options when it comes to fishing.  Booking a local guide off the road system offers a far more economical trip than the traditional fly-out lodge, without sacrificing the fishing.

Outgoing Angling offers an unbeatable experience and second to none instruction for both beginners or intermediate anglers looking to advance.

Guided Fishing Trips

When fishing anywhere in Alaska it’s recommended to hire a guide, not only will this help ensure fishing success but it’s also an issue of safety.  Alaska has a raw and dynamic landscape that is often very unforgiving.  A good guide is not only concerned about catching fish but also concerned about the overall experience and keeping everyone safe.  An experienced guide can better explain the local flora and fauna as well as introduce you to some breathtaking new experiences.

Yes, there’s bears!

Kenai River Salmon Run

If you’ve ever heard that the Kenai River is a must see when visiting Alaska, you heard correctly.  Whether you’re an angler or not the Kenai River offers some of the best recreating and fishing to be had anywhere in the state.  The various salmon runs on the Kenai are truly something to behold and the trout are that of old angling lore.  The King Salmon have unmatched size anywhere else in the world, the Sockeye Salmon return in unbelievable numbers (over 2 million in 2021) and the Silver Salmon are about as fresh as they get, targeting them within a few miles of the ocean.

Salmon fishing on the Kenai river is about as user friendly as it gets.  What better place to master a new skill and provide food for the table?  Kenai salmon fishing is the most cost effective means of catching fish to bring back home, in Alaska, period.

The Kenai River posses the best and longest trout fishing season in the state.  Some fly-out rivers may have competitive trout fishing during part of their season but the Kenai River is a world class trout fishery year round.    

Outgoing Angling employs and represents some of the best trout fishing guides on the Kenai Peninsula.  We love all fish but our guides are incredibly passionate and knowledgeable about Alaskan rainbow trout.

Trout fishing on the Kenai river is had from either a drift boat or power boat whether fly fishing or conventional fishing.  Both fly and conventional methods are effective and have their advantages recurrently.

Spey Fishing

Spey fishing is both a fun technique to acquire and implement, Spey casting is extremely efficient and also highly addictive.  Many anglers are completely enamored with this method, refuse to fish in any other manner and travel great distances to catch specific species on spey rods.

Spey Fishing on the Kenai River offers a distinct advantage given the river’s size and rate of flow.  Whether you’re an expert or have never held a two-handed rod before, one of our spey fishing guides will be glad to cut you loose on a productive run or start from square one with beginner casting lessons.

King Salmon on fly

King Salmon on a fly rod can be considered a unicorn but are completely attainable in Alaska. This includes locations like Kasilof River, Kenai River, Mat-Su Valley and Copper River Valley, where king runs are still fairly strong.  There’s no better way to catch a king than on a down and across presentation on a spey rod.

Outgoing Angling offers Alaska Fly Fishing trips and king salmon camps on some of Alaska’s more remote rivers, many rivers with great fishing have an opportunity for waterside camping. Camping alongside a good king fishing river ensures your angling time and usually is a way of getting far from crowded waters.

Micro Spey & Trout Spey

Micro Spey and Trout Spey are growing in popularity among the fly fishing community and for good reason. Using an extra light spey or switch rod to target trout or any fish on the swing is a blast. A 5 weight spey is a common line size for micro spey or trout spey. 

The Kenai Peninsula offers several great options for spey fishing including full length spey rods and micro spey rods.  Targeting trout on the Kenai River is a great quarry for the average spey angler,  one could learn the basics of trout spey and then take what they’ve learned to the big leauges then targeting king salmon and steelhead. 

Outgoing Angling provides comprehensive spey casting lessons, where we specialize in both teaching the fundamentals of spey casting as well as refining decent casters into great casters.
