August – Fly Casting Workshop
You’re invited to join the Southeast Alaska Land Trust and the Juneau Chapter of Trout Unlimited for a fly casting workshop for beginner to intermediate fly casters. Kevin Maier, local fishing guide and President of the Juneau Chapter of Trout Unlimited, will lead the workshop. Come learn how to fly cast (or learn how to perfect your cast) while trying to catch coho salmon in Gastineau Channel!
When: August (Date and time to be determined)
Where: The workshop will take place at the Southeast Alaska Land Trust’s Marjory & Edgar Huizer Fishing Access Site located 2.7 miles from the bridge on North Douglas Highway (past the ski fence).
The Southeast Alaska Land Trust acquired this property in 2015 to provide recreational and fishing access to the Mendenhall Wetlands State Game Refuge and Gastineau Channel. SEAL Trust is currently fundraising to create new parking and a trail. To learn more, please go here.
What to Bring: Fly rods and fishing supplies are being graciously provided by Trout Unlimited. Please be sure to bring your:
– Fishing Licence
– Rubber Boots (required) and/or waders (preferred)
Feel free to bring your own supplies, if you so choose, and don’t forget your water and snacks!
Cost: The fee is $50 per person and includes fly rods and fishing supplies. This workshop is limited to 10 participants, so don’t wait!
**Please note, all participants must be able to hike down a steep and sometimes slippery trail and also be able to walk across mudflats to access Gastineau Channel**
THANK YOU for your interest in the 2018 Fly Casting Workshop, and a big thank you to Trout Unlimited for their partnership.
We look forward to fishing with you!
