Freshwater Stream Fishing

Freshwater Stream Fishing

Many people book a fishing vacation in Alaska with saltwater fishing in mind, but that’s not all that the state has to offer. Alaska is also home to some of the most impressive freshwater fishing on all of planet earth. Thanks to the unique geography and massive wild salmon populations, the area that surrounds Pybus Point Lodge is a fly fisherman’s dream. 

During your stay at our all-inclusive resort, you can enjoy an unforgettable freshwater fishing experience deep in the heart of the Alaska wilderness. For no added fee, our freshwater guide will take you out for an unbeatable adventure on the river with a fly rod or spin-caster. 

Your Own Guide

No matter your skill level, your guide will be there to help you out. Whether you’re a first time fisherman wanting to learn the basics of fly fishing or you’re a seasoned angler looking to have a bucket list Alaska fishing experience, your guide will have all the hard earned skills and knowledge to make your trip a success.

Where We Fish and What You Can Catch

Pybus Point Lodge is located in the Tongass National Rainforest. Thanks to the heavy rain and snowfall that we get in our area of Alaska, there are multiple excellent freshwater rivers and streams close by the lodge. Depending on the time of year you visit our resort, these waterways are also full of spawning salmon.

While out exploring the rivers and streams that surround Pybus Point Lodge you can expect to see a variety of different salmon species. Alaska is home to five species of salmon, four of which can be found in the streams of Admiralty Island:  pink, silver, keta, and king salmon as well as Dolly Varden Trout.  If you’re wanting to target a specific species of salmon, check out this chart before planning your Alaska fishing vacation.

Some of our favorite spots to fly fish are located just a short distance from the lodge. The back of our very own Pybus Bay has an incredible stream where multiple species of salmon spawn throughout the summer. This is a great spot for beginner fishermen to learn how to fly fish since the area is clear of any obstructions that might make casting difficult. It’s also a great spot because the water is shallow and it’s usually easy to see the fish swimming beneath the surface.

If you’re an intermediate or expert fly fisherman, we’ll take you a little further into the wilderness for a more in depth freshwater experience. You can fish a variety of pools and rivers that offer a little more of a challenge–and reward. These areas are extremely remote and offer guests a spectacular opportunity to experience the Alaskan bush. They’re also great for potentially bear viewing opportunities–humans aren’t the only animals that like to fish these rivers! Just keep in mind that the water can get fairly deep, and the terrain can be difficult to cross. Because of this, we only recommend these more remote locations to guests who are up for an adventure.

Incredible Experience!

Pybus Point Lodge has some of the most stunning scenery I’ve ever seen. I mean absolutely breathtaking! In addition to the amazing fishing, I hiked to a beautiful secluded lake, soaked in some hot pots, saw several waterfalls, went whale watching, saw bears and all kinds of wildlife and marine life. As a photographer, photographing a wedding under a waterfall will remain a highlight of my life.

Wonderful and Magical Place

We had an amazing business retreat to Pybus Point Lodge.  Everything was top notch... the fishing, the staff, the boat captains, the food, the accommodations, and especially the scenery. I really liked that Pybus took care of everything from start to finish. Chef John is an amazing cook. We had delicious hot meals the entire trip.  The cabins were amazing and very comfortable.  The fishing was awesome and that’s coming from a guy that doesn’t fish that much.

We brought home 100lbs of fish!

My wife and I spent a week at Pybus Point this Summer. We had a beautiful, private room overlooking the bay and our own new, ensuite, private bathroom. What an amazing place for couples to get away together. We set our own breakfast time, met our boat captain after, fished the day along, and returned to clean up and enjoy a nice dinner at the restaurant. Next time Alaska is on the trip list, Sherrie and I will go together, and it will be to Pybus Point!

Fun in Alaska

This was my first trip to Pybus Point. I stayed in one of their new cabins. The accommodations were incredible, the view onto the bay in the mornings was stunning. I loved the staff and the food was really very good. All of this and they have new boats to take you out onto fairly calm waters to fish. The fishing guides were great. Overall a great experience. Definitely going back.
