Rainbow Trout Fishing Trips

The rainbow fishing in Alaska varies wildly from rivers with 8 to 15-inch fish to rivers where you have a chance at rainbows over 20-pounds. Some rivers have the colorful leopard rainbows, while other rivers have the less colorful nickel-bright lake run fish. Rainbow fishing in Alaska is great early June thru late September, depending on the region. Use bait-fish imitations, flesh patterns, beads, or the ultimate dry fly for trout - the mouse. And then there's Jurassic Lake in Argentina, where wild rainbows average 8 to 10-pounds. Join our hosted weeks at Aniak River Lodge in Alaska, Jurassic Lake Lodge, and Estancia Laguna Verde Lodge in Argentina for some of the best rainbow trout fishing in the world.
