We work with you to recommend and arrange all aspects of your Alaska sport fishing trip, including guides, fishing lodges, commercial lodging accommodations, and non-scheduled in-state air transportation.  When planning is complete you will have a comprehensive  itinerary with confirmed reservations for all planned activities from the moment you arrive in Alaska until your departure.  We can also make recommendations to coordinate sightseeing and accommodation arrangements to complement your sport fishing itinerary.




Operating in Alaska for over twenty six years, our service is unique because of Sport Fishing Alaska's professional qualifications and extensive first-hand experience in the Alaska sport fishing industry.

After retiring from his career as a biologist for Alaska Department of Fish and Game, Sport Fishing Alaska founder, Russ Redick, built the company based on the premise that folks visiting Alaska needed a way to plan their fishing vacations through an unbiased third party who would act both as their friend in Alaska and provide them with a reliable source of local knowledge.   Fifteen years later, he passed the company helm to Larry and Sheary Suiter, a couple who had extensive first hand knowledge from their years spent operating lodge services in bush Alaska.

As an Alaskan fishing guide and air taxi operator, Larry has been featured in numerous articles in outdoor magazines such as Sports Afield, Alaska Angler, and Alaska Outdoors. For over 10 years, the Suiters owned and operated the premier Kenai River fishing lodge, Freebird Charters. In 1986, the operation expanded to the Naknek River and surrounding Bristol Bay watershed, where the couple provided guests with customized sport fishing trips. 

During those years in the Alaska bush, Sheary managed all the behind the scenes trip planning, organizing the details of everything from do-it-yourself non-guided float trips to upscale lodge accommodations with daily guided fly-out fishing.  Since 2000, Sheary has sustained this pattern of personalized service, working one on one with all Sport Fishing Alaska clients to help them match their trip objectives with the best trip options in the state.


Planning is critical.  While Alaska has some of the world's greatest trout and salmon fisheries, many of our waters grow few fish.  Most of Alaska's fish are migratory.  Consequently, many locations provide outstanding fishing as a run migrates past but provide few fish during other times.  The quality of fishing (particularly salmon) often changes drastically from week to week.  Fortunately, the timing of the best fishing can be predicted with good regularity by persons experienced in Alaskan sport fishing. 

If you have a copy of  Frommer's Alaska travel guide handy, take a look at  their recommendation of our trip planning service for all Alaska-bound anglers.  Sport Fishing Alaska is also recommended by Fodor's Alaska.

The secret is thorough, competent planning!
