Lewis Charters can take you fishing for Alaska King Salmon (Chinook), Silver Salmon (Coho) and Rainbow Trout. Owners Dan & Lil operate a salmon fishing charter located in Willow Alaska, approximately 75 miles north of Anchorage (about a 2-hour drive), in the heart of Alaska's best King, Silver Salmon and Rainbow Trout fishing. We fish the Deshka River and other Susitna River drainages and creeks. We run in our open, shallow water SeaArk. You enjoy fishing in secluded waters with fewer people meaning MORE FISH - MORE FUN!

When To Fish Salmon

Fishing for King Salmon starts as soon as the rivers are ice-free, usually May 15 and goes until July 13th. 

 Silver Salmon fishing usually comes on the heels of King season and runs until September.

Fishing Includes (except Rainbow)

Fully guided day of adventure includes your U.S. Coast Guard licensed guide, all tackle, rods, reels, bait, cleaning of fish and a little story telling along the way.

Rainbow trout fishing trips are for the angler with their own gear. I know where the fish are! You do your best to catch them. I work with a local fly shop and I can put you in touch with them and they can help pattern the bite. Departure times can vary, it’s up to you.
