Licensed Fishing Guide Wanted:

Seasonal Position: Approximately June 1st - Aug 15th, 2018


AK eXpeditions is looking for a top notch guide for the upcoming fishing season. Alaskan residency required for this fishery. The guide candidate must be able to present himself or herself in a professional manner, be well spoken, clean cut, and articulate.  Having a good sense of humor, upbeat and positive attitude is key in providing our clients with an amazing charter regardless of fishing success. Our charters run at capacity during the peak season and this demands hard work both on and off the water. Thursdays-Sundays are the busiest times during the week and there is opportunity to guide two charters each of those days.  Monday-Wednesday can be down days that can be used as you wish to explore the area, fish, ride ATVs, hike, or visit, Valdez, McCarthy, or Kennecott Mine, etc. However, it's possible based on client bookings that you'd pick up additional trips during this time as well as opportunity to earn additional wages and tips processing the clients catch.

Fish camp is on the Copper River adjacent to Wrangell St. Ellis National Park. Base camp for the guides will consist of wall tent with generator power and cots. The camp is on the road system so if you have you're own camper you'd be able to set it up.
