About Us

Denali Fly Fishing Guides offer personalized and fully outfitted fly fishing excursions into the Alaska Range. Trip opportunities include half day, full day and multi day trips using lightweight fly gear pursuing Arctic Grayling and other fish in the area. All trips are on foot on 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.

Three scheduled departures daily include round trip transportation from area hotels and campgrounds to our office on the Nenana River.

Trips are designed for folks in good health and physical condition. You must be able to walk or stand up to three hours in order to enjoy these trips. Clients of all ages 12 and over are welcome whether they are experienced fly fisherman looking to check arctic grayling off their list of species or beginners looking to step off the road system for a few hours and learn the art of fly fishing in some of the most beautiful mountain terrain in the state.

You must be able to walk up to a half-mile over uneven terrain and wade in shallow streams as a part of all our trips.

All fishing on our trips is catch and release and barbless hooks will be used.
