Alaska Trophy Adventures Lodge is looking to hire qualified and motivated individuals to guide fly fishing trips and captain jet boats for this season. The lodge consists of 160 acres of private property on the Wild and scenic Alagnak river in Bristol Bay, Southwest Alaska. The river is well known for its record runs of all 5 species of Pacific salmon but also is home to resident fish such as rainbow trout, lake trout, arctic grayling, arctic char, and dolly varden. The resource is only accessible by jet-boat so boating experience is a must and a U.S.C.G. captain’s license is required.
Candidates must demonstrate proficiency in all aspects of fly fishing related to the region, including equipment, techniques and entomology, but prior guiding experience is not required. Fishing guides join a small, growing professional staff committed to providing quality, memorable fishing experiences and enriching guest experience.
