When the temperatures have dropped, our local frozen Fairbanks and Interior Alaskan lakes will offer the perfect opportunity for an unusually fun time in the sub-arctic outdoors. While ice fishing and catching fish in a warm (heated) fishing cabin on a beautiful local Fairbanks lake you may still safely enjoy the brisk, clear air and peaceful environment of Interior Alaska, the home to some of the best ice fishing this state has to offer.

delicous salmon on guided ice fishing in fairbanks alaskaTIP from the EXPERT - See the fish biting: The advantage of being inside a warm ice fishing cabin is not just its comfort but also that you can see the fish bite. In other words you can sight fish. Because the ice fishing shelter creates shade over the ice hole, the water surface does not reflect light. Instead, light (sun rays) are reflected into the hole from the ice shield creating an alluminating effect that acts just like a light beam. The water of the lake is usually very clear and now you can see the fish take your bait, sometimes even all the way to the bottom of the lake. A fascinating phenomena that can significantly increase your catch rate!

Why does this tour stand out?

ice fishing in fairbanks wooden ice chaletsinsulated ice houses ice fishing in fairbanksExperience our prime wooden ice fishing cabins that are developed and hand crafted over years of experience with a cedar finish giving you that special mystical winter ambience when the snow flies or temperatures are freezing cold outside.  Our ice fishing cabins come with a professional ice fishing guide who also serves as your cook. You will have a wonderfull, delicous, and especially warm ice fishing experience no matter how cold "father frost" has set it outside. However, you can give a -30F outside fishing adventure a try at any time. We are always happy to drill you a hole through the 4 feet of lake ice and set you up to ice fish outside. Since at any time you can choose to come back inside to a warm bench, and a hot beverage, you may want to give it a try, if you are not sure you would last fishing inside tent shelter with no insulation from the ice!

Before a 25min. scenic travel from Fairbanks to our ice fishing grounds, your friendly, professional local fishing guide will even pick you up at your hotel, instruct you on the traditions and mechanics of ice fishing, and will cook even your own freshly caught trout, char, silver and king salmon, or arctic grayling of the day. Don’t miss out on this fun and exciting day time winter activity in Fairbanks. This innovative ice fishing tour will offer plenty of fishing and the memorable excitment of catching fish through 4 feet of ice, pristine wilderness, and plenty of fun for a group of friends or a whole family!
