Denali Fly Fishing for Arctic Grayling (Half Day)

Soak up the beauty of Denali during this extraordinary half day fly-fishing expedition to Fish Creek. Gear up with lightweight fly-fishing gear provided by your guide—a dedicated fly-fisherman whose passion for the sport is contagious. Learn the basics of fly casting, roll casting, matching the hatch, landing fish and catch-and-release techniques. When you're ready, cast your nearly weightless artificial lure for the Arctic grayling—a species of freshwater fish in the trout family. These ravenous surface feeders are thrilling to catch on the fly whether it’s your first time or you’re a seasoned angler. Wading and moving along the uneven riverbed may be necessary. While fishing, relax and breathe in the clean mountain air and take in the unbridled beauty of the Alaskan wilderness. Enjoy this unique opportunity to feel at peace with nature!

Great time. Our guide was fun and made the trip enjoyable. Caught many fish, brookie size along with a few nice size picture worthy ones as well. The equipment was great. They provided everything you could possibly want. I'd do this trip again!

I requested a full day reservation through my travel agent. I 'm a semi experienced fly fisherman. Trip ended up being me and a guide. A dozen others opted for the half day. Guide and I went to a different location in a remote area about 30 miles from the lodge. Had a blast !! Summer was a great guide and we worked through a few casts with a 3weight rod. Then off to a full day of arctic grayling. Water was clear and you could sight cast to fish and watch the "take". While I was fishing, Summer was checking out the next available water. He was a great guide, and well equipped. Ate lunch on the way back to lodge. Only down side was rubber hip boots. Would have preferred waders. All in all a great day !!

Guide picked us up in a beat up van. Regaled us with his drinking adventures on the previous night. Lesson for two nonexperienced customers was all of four minutes. The training in "match the hatch" consisted of tying lures on and saying "try this". Two in our group of five had boots that leaked. Fishing was OK, but overall experience was hardly worth the money.
