Alaska Clearwater Sportfishing fishes the waters around Copper Landing and why not. This is the upper Kenai River, Kasilof, and Russian River areas. One of the things that sets guides apart on the Kenai is the types of permits they hold. Zach holds all three permits for this area and that means you get to fish where others cannot.

If you need lodging in the area, Alaska Clearwater Sportfishing can hook you up. This is a small charter that books quickly because of the outstanding service that they offer. Getting to Copper Landing is easy. You can drive from Anchorage in about 2.5 hours or you can fly into Sterling and they will pick you up at that airport.

They offer a fly fishing school and are happy to take on newbs. One of the cool things about fishing with Zach is his love for the area. Not only will he take you to the big Fish, but he will teach you why the big Fish are where they are and then show you how to catch them. Expect to fish for big, Wild Silvers, 30-plus-inch Rainbows, big Dolly Vardens, and Sockeye Salmon too.

The focus here is fly fishing, and if you have never tried you should. He is a natural teacher makes learning how to fly fish fun and effortless.
