Glacier Bay’s fly fishing program centers around short wheel plane fly outs to isolated streams on several of the surrounding islands. The planes land on beaches and then the anglers will walk a moderate distance to the streams. Most of the systems fished are relatively small with easy wading. Most often your group will have the river to themselves. Target species vary throughout the season and include all five species of pacific salmon, sea run cutthroats, dolly varden, and steelhead in the spring. Special arrangements can be made to fish via jet ranger helicopter as well. This provides a distinct advantage for steelhead fishermen as well as for individuals intent on seeing lots of water each day. Additionally, Glacier Bay has an excellent saltwater sport fishing program (conventional) for halibut.
