FishHound Expeditions is a professionally guide-owned guide-operated service that offers its guests the best of Alaska Fly Fishing Trips along many of Alaska's best rivers.

Featured Packages


The location of our 6-10 day trips is Western Alaska. Western Alaska is truly remote, very little evidence of humanity or other fisherman. The rivers we operate on don't have lodges clogged with jet boat traffic We fly into either Bethel or Dillingham via Alaska Air which departs multiple times a day from Anchorage. From there guests and guides board bush planes either on wheels or floats to head to one of many rivers in the vast area.

We target all 5 species of Pacific Salmon, mouse eating Leopard Rainbows, beautifully finned Arctic Grayling, brilliantly colored Dolly Varden, and Arctic Char. On all FishHound trips guests enjoy a 2 to one ratio (one guide two clients). Guests also enjoy our move-able "lodge", a large cook tent and dining area that can seat 8 and provide stream side views while being out of the elements. Clients have their own sleeping tents complete with cots and insulated down pads. Other than fishing clients are only responsible for packing up their personal gear, FishHound staff takes care of everything else.

Contact us to learn more about this incredible experience!


We run heli-fishing on multiple rivers throughout south-central Alaska, which is easily accessible from the Anchorage area.

We offer single day heli-fishing trips as well as 2 thru 6 multi-day float fishing trips . This type of trip provides an amazing remote Alaskan river experience with much more ease than some of the further location we operate on. This is a perfect trip for folks who want a wilderness trip/experience but don't want to spend their whole time in Alaska in one remote location.

Most trips depart from the beautiful town of Talkeetna in the shadow of Denali. Denali provides an amazing view as you are flown out to some of the most phenomenal fishing in Alaska. Depending on the time of year we target all 5 species of Pacific Salmon. Huge bruiser Rainbow Trout are always present as well as Arctic Grayling and Dolly Varden.
