The beautiful Lake Louise region offers a relaxing fishing trip for both beginners and master anglers alike. Unlike popular salmon fishing, this trip takes you off the beaten path and away from the crowd, providing a savoury taste of Alaska fishing. As far as we know, this is the only guided trip available in the Lake Louise area.

In the 1940's, Alaska's Lake Louise region was primarily used for hunting, fishing, and trapping. However, in the 1970's, the United States Army used it as a cold-climate survival training area. Today, the region is populated by approximately 50 full-time residents, so there is a relaxed and family-friendly atmosphere along with a wide variety of outdoor activities for visitors of every age.

You'll enjoy fishing such a giant expanse of three connected lakes, most notably for Lake Trout. Alaskan Lake Trout live an average 20 years, however they have been known to live longer than 50 years. They average 15 to 40 pounds and 24 to 36 inches making Lake Trout quite an exciting catch. Lake Trout also make for a tasty dinner fish if you prefer to catch and cook.

In addition to the amazing fishing at Lake Louise, you can expect to see a wide variety of wildlife, including the cormorants. The lake is currently the only known freshwater nesting site for these beautiful sea birds. In Autumn, caribou herds pass through the region, another breathtaking event.

Where it's at.

This trip begins and ends in friendly Soldotna, Alaska, home to the Kenai River and the world's largest Salmon catch.
