DELTA CLEARWATER TROPHY ARCTIC GRAYLING – DAY TRIP
The best in Arctic Grayling Fishing Interior Alaska has to offer!
Fish for Trophy size Arctic Grayling on Interior Alaska’s most famous big grayling river the Delta Clearwater. Gin-clear water will make big fish (+20″) become a realistic possibility for you!
As we start our fishing late mornings the peak of the bite comes early afternoon when a Mayfly hatch takes place and the water starts to boil. When the fish start rising to the surface, catching an 18-inch+ grayling is common. It can turn into the best dry fly fishing in Interior if not all of Alaska at any given day. We take great photos and you will have the memories of a lifetime to take home with you.
As on all our fishing trips, you will be fully outfitted, including transportation from your Fairbanks hotel. First-class fly- or spin fishing gear, terminal tackle, and a light lunch make this trip the superb and memorable fishing experience you are looking for.
Your fishing guide picks you up from your Fairbanks hotel or residence at no extra cost and takes you on a very scenic drive (100 miles) down the Richardson Highway with often fantastic views of the Tanana River braids and the giant glacier-covered mountains of the Alaska Range.
In Delta Junction on the Clearwater Creek, we start fishing some of the best holes of the river in search for that trophy-size 18-20 inch Arctic grayling. The day trip offers a combination of wade and boat fishing and we cruise in our custom made jet boat that will get you into the remotest parts of this gorgeous river.
This trip also offers a great wilderness and scenic Alaskan outdoor experience. It can be enjoyed by anglers of any experience level. Many resident Alaskans have also enjoyed our trips on the special river. Reserve your spot as soon as you know your dates as space is limited and sold first come first serve!

After buying your license online you receive an email from Alaska Fish and Game (ADFG) with the electronic (pdf) copy of your license. You can also still print out the license or you can simply save them on your phone. You will need to save the license in order to sign the license, but also to be able to still pull it up when you do not have cell/data reception in remote ice fishing locations. To save, either take a screenshot or save a copy to your “files” app on your phone. Bring a picture ID and the fishing license with you on the tour.

Be aware: It is your responsibility to acquire and provide a valid Alaskan fishing license when asked by a guide, wild life trooper (game warden), park ranger, or any other legal authority. Failing to provide the fishing license can result in being denied participation in a tour, being fined, or denied the future ability to acquire a valid fishing license in Alaska.
