Late July – Late October
Whether you’re a seasoned angler or have never touched a rod, this adventure is for anyone who wants to fish. Our guides will take you to pristine and isolated streams filled with wild Pacific salmon. We fish for coho, chinook, pinks and steelhead, as well as Dolly Varden char, rainbow, and cutthroat trout. Our helicopters give you access to 50,000 square miles of terrain, including over 50 isolated rivers and streams, allowing you to be where the fish are. Your helicopter stays with you all day and our pilots/guides are expertly trained in these wilderness areas.
July 19th – October 25th
This adventure is for the experienced fly-fisher person as well as those who want to learn. We recommend that fly-fishers bring their own rods and reels, but we have equipment at Nimmo Bay, should you need it. Your guide is well versed in fly fishing and we invite you to take part in a personal fly fishing lesson off our dock, before you head out on your adventure.
*At Nimmo Bay, we practice catch and release using single barbless hooks.
Rates vary depending on the number of people in your group and the number of helicopters required. Please refer to the Rates-at-a-Glance page for more information.
