Rainbow Trout Fishing Trips

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 colorful leopard rainbows, while others have the less colorful nickel-bright lake-run fish. Rainbow fishing in Alaska is great from early June through 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.
