Alaska fly fishing Guides at Wildman Lake Lodge.

Alaska fly fishing guides

Alaska Fly fishing Guides enjoy all tackle from double hand Spey rods to the traditional single hand fly rods for Salmon and Steelhead.  Our rivers work well with wading, casting and swinging flies.

We are able to fly or jetboat to the best waters in our area.  Volcanic sand river bottoms is typical here on the Alaska Peninsula.  Available species are Pacific Salmon, Rainbow, Arctic Char, Dolly Varden and wild Steelhead.

A sinking tip for a floating line is very effective.  Dry fly fishing for Rainbow and Char or even poppers for Silver Salmon will need a floating line. We use 6 weight rods for trout and char, 8 weight rods for salmon and either a 9 weight or 10 weight for King Salmon fishing.

As summer arrives, so do the mighty King salmon.

Releasing another big King with Wildman Lake Lodge

These 30 to 55 pound lunkers will even put a major bend in the longest Spey rod. We visit a number of excellent fly fishing rivers for King salmon during June and July.  All summer long, salmon choke the rivers while trout and char gorge themselves on salmon roe and nearly double their weight by fall time. Chum and Pink salmon, caught just a bend or two upriver from the saltwater, are a great fly rod experience from mid-July to mid-August.

You can experience the absolute best Silver salmon fishing in Alaska beginning in mid-August and continuing into right into October.  Silver salmon weighing from 12 to 22 pounds can be taken on either wet or top-water flies at Wildman Lake Lodge. See the best top water Coho fishing ever on our video “Our Clients Say it Best,” which was filmed here at Wildman Lake Lodge. A weeklong fishing package at Wildman Lake Lodge includes three fully guided fly out fishing days targeting the in season salmon species on neighboring rivers.   Three additional fishing days via jet boat with our experienced guides for salmon, trout and char. Your arrival day also includes a full afternoon of local fishing, which is not the case at many Alaska lodges.

Some of our best fly fishing occurs directly behind the lodge.  At Wildman Lake Lodge, it is very unusual to encounter any anglers that you didn’t see at the breakfast table.

Wildman Lodge is located on one of the very finest sport fishing rivers in Alaska.  Ocean River flows crystal clear and maintains the same water level year-round, so every day is a guided fly fishing day, no matter what the weather is doing.  The water visibility is a dream for all of our Alaska fly fishing guides.

Wildman lodge is home to the greatest fly fishing guides in Alaska.   The rivers are home to the mighty Steelhead during early spring and late fall, providing a world-class fishing experience for the serious angler.

Twenty years as Alaska fly fishing guides on the Peninsula has taught us that targeting just Steelhead on a single river can be difficult, However, because of its clear-water artesian source, the home river at Wildman Lodge is guaranteed to be clear everyday.

We often have excellent seasonal fishing at our local rivers for wild Steelhead as well as abundant Arctic char & Dolly Varden.  Our native Rainbow and Steelhead trout at our home river remain excellent fly fishing species regardless the weather. Contact us for Availability.

Alaska Fly Fishing Instruction

Our fly fishing guides are all experienced fly fishermen and are happy to provide casting tips and fly fishing instruction during your fishing trip.

We have instructional videos at the lodge and plenty of casting area (shallow water and firm wading) just outside the lodge’s back door. Evening casting clinics can be arranged anytime. It is always best to learn to fly fish while you are catching fish at Wildman Lake Lodge. We have an excellent assortment of flies in the gift shop and also a fully stocked fly tying table right at the lodge. We also send you a list of our most productive fly patterns when you book your trip. Wildman strongly advocates catch and release of our native trout species; however, we will happily fillet, vacuum pack and freeze salmon, one airline approved box of frozen fillets for each guest.
