alaska trout caught fly fishing at fly out lodge

Your adventure can vary greatly depending on when you choose to come. Our season corresponds with Alaska’s summer, June- September. Our warmest weather and longest days are June and July.  Temperature averages for June, July and August are 62 degrees with a September average of 56 degrees. While the early months typically have the nicest weather, it’s still possible to get a week of cold, rainy weather throughout the season. It’s also possible to see 70 degree days in September. Bottom line- it’s very unpredictable.

We generally base our days on weather, available daylight and where we plan on fishing. June and July will have unlimited daylight and a wide variety of destinations to fish. Our chef will prepare a delicious breakfast around 7 am and a gourmet dinner at 7 pm. August and September will have reduced daylight and fewer fishing options so we usually try to get out at “sun-up” and back an hour before dinner.

Where will we fish tomorrow?…

We look at weather forecasts, gather input from all guides and pilots, refer back to our fishing logs from our log history in the area and present you with the best options. Whether you have a river that’s an old favorite, a place you’re keen to check out, want to hike, or need minimal walking/wading. We always try to accommodate everyone’s wishes and generally do. It’s one of the great advantages to having a small number of anglers and three airplanes.

Occasionally we have “weather days.” This can involve high winds or low visibility. Generally we can still get out fishing either by choosing a destination minimally affected by adverse conditions or fishing our home water via jet boat. These days are rare, only a couple times a season. While we don’t want anyone to ever miss a fishing day, or even part of a day, we will always prioritize safety.
