Fly Guides is open nearly year-round. They offer guided fly fishing trips throughout the Chilkat and Chilkoot valleys. Guests of the service can target all five species of Pacific Salmon, Steelhead, Cutthroat Trout, and Dolly Varden. Best of all, they offer in-depth instruction for those who have never tossed a fly before. The exciting and exhilarating experience of battling a big trout or salmon is life-changing. A perfect charter for anyone who wants to learn how to fly fish and for those who are already masters.

Fishing Haines & Skagway with Fly Guides

There are plenty of spots around Haines and even in Skagway to fly fish. The Hatchery in Skagway releases thousands of King Salmon Smolt each year, and as those fish grow, they return to the local bays where you can fly fish for them as they prepare to head upstream to spawn. The local rivers offer outstanding fishing for all King Salmon and Silver Salmon as well as fat Cutthroat Trout and Dolly Varden. In the Spring and Fall, the Steelhead fishing is excellent, as is the opportunity to target the big Dolly Varden.

Fly Guides provides everything you need to fly fish, including quality waders, top fly rods, hand-tied flies, and they include professional instruction as they share their love of fly fishing with you. They offer half-day and full-day fishing trips around the local area. One of the best things about fishing here is that there are a lot of DIY fishing opportunities. Once you learn how to fly fish, nothing is stopping you from fishing in the local area. They offer single fisher trips, and small group excursions and their personalized service fit both types of groups.

Overall, expect high-quality guided fishing, and quality, easy to learn fishing lessons on some of the coolest rivers in the area. The fishing in Haines and Skagway is reasonably straightforward, and you have access to big fish too.
