Daily Alaska Fly Out Fishing Trips From The Kenai Peninsula

to the West Side of Cook Inlet and Beyond…

Alaska Fly Out fishing. Accessing remote Alaska fishing waters via floatplane will elevate your pursuit to an entirely different level. Since more than 90% of Alaska’s most fabled fishing waters are only accessible via floatplane, getting up in the air opens up a myriad of spectacular fishing options. Mark Glassmaker is proud to offer a number of high quality fishing trips to the West Side of Cook Inlet and beyond. These are primarily one day trips from the Kenai Peninsula to the West Side of Cook Inlet and a number of other spectacular destinations on the main Alaska Peninsula, Kodiak Island and other remote locals in the South Central Alaska region. For many, fishing in the remote waters of the main Alaska Peninsula is what they came to Alaska to experience: no road system, boundless scenery, abundant wildlife and undisturbed waters teeming with fish.

We feel at least one day of remote fly in fishing will help to round out the perfect fishing vacation. While one could fill weeks exploring the many fishing options available from the Kenai Peninsula, we always recommend our guests take the opportunity to experience a remote fly out and spend some time where there are no roads and bears outnumber humans. With our own boats waiting for us when we arrive (when needed) and the finest floatplanes and pilots available on the Kenai Peninsula, we guarantee a safe, comfortable high-quality experience you will not soon forget.

Depending on what time of the summer you visit, there are sure to be some very exciting remote fishing options available to meet your budget and angling interests. Below we have listed our primary Fly Out destinations along with run timing, available fishing methods and costs. All trips include round trip floatplane transportation, experienced, professional fishing guide, boat (when needed) and all necessary fishing gear.
