Fishing in the Tordrillo Mountains

The Tordrillo Mountains are home to many rivers and streams, which serve as sanctuaries to a variety of freshwater species. Aboard a helicopter, it only takes a few minutes to reach some of the richest fishing holes in this remote area.

In almost 20 years of heli fishing these streams, we still rarely compete with other anglers when fishing by helicopter for all five species of Pacific Salmon, Rainbow Trout, Arctic Char, and Grayling. Our fishing guides pride themselves in staking out territory that, without their inside knowledge, would be impossible to find. Read our ultimate guide to fishing in Alaska.

Private Fishing Trips with Experienced Guides

Our fleet of helicopters gives us the advantage of landing on otherwise-inaccessible riverbanks and shoals, meaning you’ll never compete for shoulder room—or fish. We can tailor each day of fishing based on what’s running at various drainages and streams. If nothing’s hitting, we’re onto the next spot.

Enjoy Alaska’s legendary freshwater fishing with our knowledgeable and experienced fishing guides. Contact us today to inquire about our summer fishing packages.
