Describing a place as unique and special as Fishing Bear Camp is anything but easy. At its core this modest and endearing family-run Alaskan camp offers its guests just the right amount of roughing it and an opportunity to experience a remarkable diversity of true wilderness fly fishing.

Backed up against the surreal spires of the Wind River range, right in the heart of southwest Alaska's 1.6-million acre Wood-Tikchik State Park, Fishing Bear employs jetboats to fly fish a host of seldom seen small streams for hearty rainbows, abundant Arctic char and large surface oriented grayling. In addition to these smaller under the radar stealth systems, guests can enjoy trophy rainbow fly fishing sessions on the renowned Agulapak. For dry fly enthusiasts, lovers of solitude and exceptional scenery, or families in search of adventure and a rewarding introduction to the wonders of wilderness fly fishing, this is a place that leaves guests planning their return trip as they fly home.

Accommodations

Fishing Bear Camp, hand built by its owners, is a small family operated fly-in camp catering to a maximum of eight guests per week. The main dining has an atmosphere of relaxed, friendly comfort and guests may choose to enjoy meals indoors or on shore to experience as much fishing as possible.

The spruce and cedar built cabins have propane lights and heat. Guests cabins are complete with two single beds with top blankets, chairs, table, clothing shelves, and floor rugs. Guests will need to bring their own sleeping bag or sheets, and bath towel.

Each day begins with a hearty warm breakfast and lunch is served riverside by the guides. The camp likes to make an event out of dinner and prepares all meat entrees on the outdoor grill. Fresh salads and homemade breads complement each night's entrΓ©e along with a variety of side dishes and desserts.
