Denali Fly Fishing for Arctic Grayling (Full Day)Back to Excursions
This extraordinary fly-fishing expedition takes you to the area’s streams for a full day of chasing native Arctic Grayling on the Denali Highway. Gear up with lightweight fly-fishing gear provided by your guide—a dedicated fly-fisherman whose passion for the sport is contagious. Learn the basics of fly casting, roll casting, matching the hatch, landing fish and catch-and-release techniques. When you’re ready, cast your nearly weightless artificial lure for the Arctic grayling—a species of freshwater fish in the trout family. Learn the unique characteristics of Arctic Grayling and the insects they feed on all summer. These ravenous surface feeders are thrilling to catch on the fly whether it’s your first time or you’re a seasoned angler. Wading and moving along the uneven riverbed may be necessary. While fishing, relax, breathe in the clean mountain air and take in the unbridled beauty of the Alaskan wilderness. Enjoy this unique opportunity to feel at peace with nature!
