Angler's Alibi specializes in fly fishing for Salmon, rainbow trout, grayling and arctic char. They tie most of their own flies, and provide casting and tying instruction on an individual basis. Even fly fishing novices can expect to catch over 20 fish each day. The Guides at Angler's Alibi are equally experienced with fly fishing equipment as they are with spin or casting gear. However, they will not put fly fishermen and spin fishermen with the same guide (unless requested of course). Shallow, easy wading is the most productive fishing method on the Alagnak River and on their fly-out streams. King Salmon, however, are an exception; where casting and/or drifting from the boat is the best method. The guest to guide ratio is from one to three guests per guide, depending on the circumstances.
With millions of fish returning each year, the remote Alagnak River is one of the premier salmon streams in the world, and is renowned for its rainbow trout & grayling fishing. Angler's Alibi also provides optional guided fly-outs to some of Alaska's other very best rainbow trout, arctic char and grayling streams.With only ten guests they can cater to each person's expectations for their trip always.
Angler's Alibi provides comfortable weatherport tent cabins, complete with carpeted wood floors, electricity, heat and maid service. These tent cabins are complete with all the amenities of a modern home.
Your day starts with a full course breakfast, including fresh fruit, pancakes or French toast, sausage and bacon, eggs to order, omelets, juice, coffee, etc. In fact, your first cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa will be delivered to you while you are still in bed. We usually eat lunch on the river, but return to camp for a hot lunch when the weather dictates. After a hard day of fishing you can return to camp for a leisurely cocktail hour with smoked salmon, beer batter fried salmon and other hot appetizers. There is always plenty of time for a long hot shower or nap before a full course dinner with fresh baked breads and homemade desserts. Complimentary wine is served for cocktail hour and with dinner.
Your trip at Angler’s Alibi starts as soon as you touch down in the town of King Salmon, Alaska. King Salmon is a 1-hour commercial flight from Anchorage. The flight service will pick you up at the airport on Monday morning and bring you to the float plane dock. From there, you will load all your luggage and head out to camp. Once you are at camp, Angler's Alibi will get you settled into your deluxe tent cabin and serve you a lunch either at camp or on the river while you start your fishing the day you arrive. From here your week begins. If you choose a full 7 day package, you will depart the following Monday morning on a return flight to King Salmon.
