Spey Fishing in Alaska.
One of our biggest passions at Cooper Landing Fishing Guide, LLC is Spey Fishing or Spey Casting. Spey Casting is an age-old fly fishing technique that can be accomplished with a single-hand fly rod or a two-hand fly rod. Spey Casting, specifically Skagit Casting, is the most effective way to swing big flies on heavy sink tips for big fish! Spey Casting is easy to learn and is effective for Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, King Salmon, Sockeye Salmon and Silver Salmon.
Guided SPEY FISHING OPTIONS:
*** All Spey-specific guided fishing trips will be a full day and ideally not exceed 2 anglers per boat. Catch and release is mandatory for Wild King Salmon, Rainbow Trout and Dolly Varden.
King Salmon: (May 20th-july 31st)
Rainbow Trout/Dolly Varden: (June 11th-August 15 & September 15th-October 31st)
Silver Salmon: (August 1st-October 31st)
Our goal when guiding is to teach Spey Casting techniques to our clients as often as we can. The tight line grab at the end of your fly line from an angry fish is an unforgettable feeling! If you've never tried Spey Casting, we highly encourage it!
