Denali Angler

With access to spring creeks & clearwater streams in the heart of the Alaska Range, our local waters are renowned for epic scenery and wild Arctic Grayling. I’d love to show you this wonderful dry fly fishery near Denali Park.

Come experience this wonderful fishery just south of Denali National Park. The creeks we fish are deep and clear and cold, and the grayling are all wild. Eager surface feeders, Arctic Grayling may just be the perfect fly rod fish, and most days we’ll fish only dry flies. We’ve been fly fishing the Denali area for the last 28 years and have access to miles of beautiful creeks and rivers. We’ve explored every run and riffle, and we’re ready to guide you on some of our favorite water.

A Short Drive South of Denali Park

We welcome beginners and experts alike as we pride ourselves on tailoring our fly fishing trips to your specific needs. Pick you up at your lodge? No problem. Never fly fished before? We’ll teach you. Need rods, reels, flies, and hip boots? Denali Angler has got you covered as you pursue Arctic Grayling, one of the world’s most beautiful fish in what is—no doubt—one of the world’s most beautiful places.

Your Guide

I’m George Rogers, owner of Denali Angler, and I’m looking forward to fly fishing with you. I’m an Alaska registered fishing guide and I’ve fly fished the Denali area since first moving to Alaska in 1992. For much of the year, I’m a science teacher, but my summers are spent fly fishing, hiking, rafting and picking blueberries with my wife and two sons in the little town of Cantwell. If you’re new to fly fishing, I’m a patient, encouraging teacher with years of fly fishing and teaching experience. If you’re a hardcore angler who wants to push hard all day long, I can take you as far as you want to go. Either way, I’ll show you some beautiful country and take you to places that I love to fish myself. After all, you came to Alaska to leave the crowds behind.

  • Wonderful experience! We went on a fly fishing guided trip with George and Witt back in August and had a blast! They were incredibly knowledgeable, welcoming, and great communication on all fronts! Our group of 3 was a mix of 2 newbies, and one moderately seasoned fly fisherman. They were able to provide an experience that allowed for ALL of us to have a phenomenal time! They even helped us improve our fishing and we left better equipped than we arrived! We caught an insane amount of pink salmon on our day on the water with them! We WILL be back! Thanks guys!

  • Booked last minute and went out with George's son. It was the best day!! We targeted arctic grayling (a bucket list fish for us). I am new to fly fishing and Whit was patient and very helpful teaching me, and was great at getting my husband on the fish. He shared a lot about the area and we learned quite a bit. We will definitely be making a trip back up to Denali just to fish with him again!

  • My son and I had a great trip with Denali Angler this week. George is a great guide, providing knowledge, gear, and assistance to help my son and me catch our first grayling. And we caught dozens during our trip with George! I'd highly recommend Denali Angler if you want to catch grayling in Alaska.

  • My in-laws took my son to Alaska with his cousin. They booked a day with George and I wasn?t quite sure how it would be received?..well it was his favorite day and excursion in all of Alaska. 8 hours of fishing and my son loved every second. He said George and his son were cool and easy to talk with. He caught a ton of fish and learned the art of fly fishing. My son is now looking to buy fly fishing gear. I didn?t get the opportunity to meet George and Witt personally, but I am truly grateful for giving my son tremendous memories

  • My family and I fished with George and his son and had a great time. George is very knowledgeable, is a great teacher/guide, and took us to some beautiful areas to fish for Grayling and we caught plenty of fish. I hope to return to Cantwell to fish with Denali Angler in the future.
