SeaWind Aviation’s guided Ketchikan fly-in fishing trips to the Misty Fjords National Monument take anglers to extraordinary places. Our guests experience a scenic chartered flight that ends on a lake-and-stream system where very few people are privileged to go each year. Most of the hand picked lakes in Misty Fjords receive just a handful of visitors each summer making these fishing holes gorgeous and serene. The fly fishing for Alaska trout is superb and these guided trips are for spin or fly fisherman, novice or experienced. Choose a zone, grab a few friends, and then let’s go fishing.
Rick Collins grew up in Ketchikan and has been on the water since he can remember. He is the perfect match to take you into the Misty Fjords National Monument for a wilderness fishing experience you won’t soon forget. After a scenic and narrated flight, you will touch down on a pristine fresh water lake where world class fishing awaits. Lake selection will be based on the current quality of fishing, the scenery, and the current / forecasted weather conditions. Due to the limited number of permits allowed on those wilderness lakes, the experience is usually undisturbed and pristine.

“My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary aboard the Carnival Legend cruising around Alaska back in May. One of our stops was Ketchikan and I wanted to make sure my husband, who loves to fish, got the chance to do so in such an incredible place. I tried contacting a couple of other places who were booked, but one guy personally contacted Lesley to see if SeaWind was available. Lesley immediately agreed to help plan an unforgettable trip for us with their trusted fishing guide Rick. She was kind, easy to communicate with, and provided us with options so we could pick one that best suited us. Steve was a wonderful pilot and executed an incredibly smooth take-off and landing on the water. It was quite an experience seeing Ketchikan from above in the Beaver plane; I even had my best whale sighting on the way back! Thank you Lesley for being so accommodative and providing us with a trip of a lifetime, and thank you Steve for your excellent piloting skills!”— TripAdvisor Review
“Had a wonderful flight yesterday with Steve on our way to some epic fishing and scenery east of Ketchikan. The airplane was clean and comfortable, headsets at every seat allowing us to communicate during the flight, and Steve is a first-class pilot. As a local who lives here all year, I was glad to have him in the pilot’s seat. In addition to the safe flight, Rick Collins of Explore Alaska Charters provided us with some fantastic fishing in an area that only gets fished a handful of times each year.”— TripAdvisor Review
