List of Fishing Guides in Alaska

List of Fishing Guides in Alaska
Guides are available throughout Alaska and offer options ranging from boats trips into open water to fly fishing excursions on nearby rivers and streams and to multiple-day camping trips that require fly-ins and fly-outs. Guides offer varying degrees of service, such as furnishing equipment, rain gear, instruction or meals, and many guides will prepare a patron's catch (filleting and cleaning). To ship a catch home, visitors must consider using one of the many local processors.

ACE Fishing Adventures

ACE Fishing Adventures is located in the town of Kenai along the Cook Inlet. The town is a four-hour drive south of Anchorage. ACE offers boat excursions on the Kenai and Kasilof rivers for salmon (its specialty), halibut and trout. Fishing-only trips are full or half days, and equipment, including gear for inclement weather, is provided. Fly fishing equipment is available as well. ACE cleans and prepares your catch, however, a trip to a local processor is necessary if you wish to ship your catch home.
