Golden Heart Anglers

Running angling trips out of Fairbanks, Golden Heart Anglers invites you to create priceless memories during your stay in the golden heart of Alaska!

Capt. Alex is enthusiastic and passionate about fly fishing. His goal is to show you the magic to be experienced in the great outdoors. You’ll be fly fishing while immersed in the backdrop of spectacular views that can only be found in Alaska. During their 4 to 7-hour trips, you’ll be wading, walking, or drifting. You can target species like Rainbow Trout, Grayling, and Salmon, depending on the current season and weather conditions.

All the necessary fishing gear is included in the price of your trip. Please keep in mind you’ll need to get a fishing license before the start of the trip.
Bait isn’t included in the trip price, so make sure to check with the captain what your options are before the trip. The meeting point will be arranged prior to the trip.

You’ll get to keep your limit of Salmon; however, any Grayling and Trout are "strictly catch and release" and must be returned to the water. During full-day trips, lunch is included, and you’re always welcome to pack your own drinks and snacks should you want to. This is a children-friendly business. Have you served our country? Ask the captain for information about military discounts.
