Fish Alaska Creators
Fish Alaska magazine is a full color, glossy publication produced ten times a year offering a variety of how-to articles, regional features, trip-planning advice, gear reviews, recipes, entertaining stories, and in-depth Alaska fishing information. The magazine is owned by an Alaskan brother and sister team and has been published for more than 18 years. The success of our magazine can be attributed to many things including the popularity of Alaska and its reputation for being the premier angling destination in the world. We are supported by a core group of long-term staff and feel incredibly fortunate to produce a quality product with talented professionals we respect and admire. Covering all aspects of Alaska sport fishing from where to fish and what to use as well as all types of angling techniques, Fish Alaska is produced in January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August/September, October/November, and December. We also make Hunt Alaska magazine.

Comments From Fish Alaska Readers
“I’ve been a subscriber for a long time and I really enjoy your magazine. I’m coming to Alaska next summer and I have a couple days to fish in the Cooper Center area. I would like to fish with a guide on the Klutina and Tonsina Rivers. Do you have any recommendations for guides and/or accommodations for this area? I’ve done some research online at this point but I’m not ready to talk to anyone about final details. Any information you could forward me would be much appreciated.” —Gary Bisel
“Just wanted to pass on my appreciation and happiness in your July 2017 Fish Alaska. I’m a resident fly angler and this edition must have been written especially for me. I fold page corners to flag stories for future reference. The July magazine looks beat up already and I’m just getting started. Well done!” —Jolynne Howard
“My dad introduced me to fishing when I was just big enough to hold a rod. He taught me how to read the water and where fish lay. I still remember the first time we went salmon fishing in the ocean. I landed the first fish of the day and he had such a big grin on his face. That grin returned in Alaska. I was just at my parents’ house with family here for the holidays. Everyone wanting to hear the stories of the Alaska fishing trip. He couldn’t tell a story without a big smile. I can’t say much, I am my father’s son, I’m smiling too. With a big smile, I handed my brother-in-law the Fish Alaska Magazine with my father and me on the cover. My mom chimed in with every page number that you can find a picture of us. After most of the stories were told, dad said when he gets frustrated or is having a bad day he thinks about fishing in Alaska and can’t help but smile. Words can’t describe what that means to me! Truly a trip of a lifetime. Reading the article of the trip was like living it again. I love how Fish Alaska Magazine does not just apply to fishing in Alaska. I have found many tricks and techniques to use in the waters I fish here at home in California. Alaska is a special place. To take my dad on a dream trip like this will be forever etched into my mind.” —Eric Ward
