Fishing Bear's location within the Wood-Tikchik State Park offers unequaled scenic beauty and solitude not easily matched in Alaska. 


Location

Fishing Bear is located at the mouth of Alaska's Peace River in the center of the Wood-Tikchik Park, North America's largest Wilderness State Park. The 1.6 million acre state park was created in 1978 to enhance and protect the area's prolific fish and wildlife, as well as the regions pristine wilderness character.

Named for the watershed's large interconnected clearwater lakes and rivers, the area spans a unique variety of terrain and vegetative zones and is renowned for its diverse beauty. The lakes vary in length from 15 to 45 miles, each fed by numerous streams and interconnected by clear flowing world-class fishing rivers. Spired peaks, high alpine valleys, waterfalls, hanging glaciers and great glacial scoured mountains make the scenery at our location some of the most magnificent on earth.

Freshwater fish are prolific throughout the area. Rainbow trout, arctic char, dolly varden, grayling, whitefish and northern pike abound in the lakes and interconnected rivers. An average of 1.3 million Sockeye Salmon spawn in the system annually.

One of the most enjoyable surprises for our fly fishermen is the easy wading offered by our waters. Anglers of any age and skill can comfortably and successfully fish our waters. Your guides are conscientious professional fly fishermen. Our job is to facilitate you having a wonderful experience each and every day.

Whatever your skill level we are there to help as much as you would like. For beginners we welcome the opportunity to successfully introduce youto the world of Alaska fly fishing. We are the perfect place to learn on a variety of waters and species. There is no better place to learn than at Fishing Bear Lodge where you will catch fish while you are learning. You will be practicing and constantly improving your skills while being able to watch the reaction of the fish, often in gin clear waters.

We are located right in the heart of Bristol Bay’s Trophy Rainbow Trout area. The outlet river of our home lake is the world famous Agulapak River. Rivers in our area have some of the highest concentrations of Rainbow Trout in Alaska. You can consistently catch Rainbow Trout on dry fly. Our specialty is fishing these rivers, enjoying a grilled shoreline dinner and then fishing the river again through the late evening magic hours for big rising Rainbows and Grayling. When you are standing in the river and it “turns on” with big Rainbows sipping dry flies there is no finer fly fishing experience on earth.
