    Our trips can begin as early as mid to late May and run through mid-October & just like anything in Alaska are at mother nature's whim. The rivers we guide on are the tributaries of the Susitna river systems. Based on which rivers are fishing the best, we supply our customers with the fishing gear they need (license's excluded) from quality waders & boots to rods, reels, line & even flies at no additional charge! We can provide transportation to and from the river or if you prefer or its easier for you to meet your guide at a specific location we can accommodate that.
    We realize that most folks who are doing these style of trips may be new to it & would have no idea what to bring, so we take the guess work out of it right down to having back-up ponchos and rain gear for our guests.
    On our full day trips lunch is included in the price and typically consists of reindeer brats, burgers, or a vegetarian options is also available.

    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.
