Overview
More
Salmon River Sportfishing exists to provide guided land-based river fishing trips to children and adults of all skill levels. Fishing trips include all gear, an educated guide, and a tasty snack of smoked Alaskan Salmon. Spinning rods or fly rods are available. We also provide three different guided hikes on trails around Gustavus. If you prefer flat hikes and shorter distances, we could either hike to an old plane that crashed in the woods or along the Nagoonberry trail which has berries and views of the beach. Up for a little more of an adventure? Join us on a hike up to a waterfall and look down at Gustavus and the surrounding ocean.

I really enjoyed fishing in the Salmon River! Natalie was an excellent guide because she was very patient explaining how to cast. It was early in the morning, quiet, and very relaxing to fish in the stream.
