Denali Fly-Fishing for Arctic Grayling (Half Day)Back to Excursions
Soak up the beauty of Denali during this extraordinary half-day fly-fishing expedition to Fish Creek. 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. 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 Alaska wilderness. Enjoy this unique opportunity to feel at peace with nature!
