Information about our Alaska Fishing Lodge
Fishing lodges in Alaska are numerous and we would like to thank you for considering Island Point Lodge for your fishing trip to Alaska. Our Alaska fishing lodge can offer you a complete salmon and halibut fishing trip including lodging and meals. You can make airline reservations yourself, or we can assist you with traveling to our fishing lodge in Alaska.
We would like to provide you with more details so you know exactly what to expect at our Alaska fishing lodge so your Alaskan Salmon and Halibut Fishing experience is the absolute best it can be.
- Island Point Lodge will provide you with comfortable accommodations for a reasonable cost.
- It is important to understand that this is called a "fishing trip", not a "catching trip". There will be times when large schools of fish will arrive creating a catching frenzy. At other times it will be fishing as usual, you have to work at it.
- The length of the trip is approximately 9 days, portal to portal (reference the day schedule sheet for details). The trip includes 7 days and 6 nights at the fishing lodge, and one day each way for air travel. Arrival day is Saturday and departure day is the following Friday.
WHY ISLAND POINT LODGE?
The fishing lodge is set up for the experienced fisherman with knowledge in operating outboard motors on small crafts. Our crafts are 18 foot Aluminum Alaskan Lunds with outboard motors operated from a side console. The operators must have the knowledge and the ability to read nautical maps. The Lodge will also provide halibut and salmon charters in salt water for an additional charge.
Details for charter guided trips can always be obtained through the office at the fishing lodge in Alaska.
Fishing Lodge with Unlimited Fishing Hours
The fishing hours are unlimited, not like those of guided camps where fishing times are scheduled!
Trolling for some salmon species is done directly in front of the lodge. This allows the fisherman an opportunity to fish from dawn (3 or 6 am) until breakfast, which are sometimes the most productive hours for fishing in Alaska.
Within five to forty-five minutes from the lodge, there are several rivers offering the spinner, caster and fly fisherman the opportunity to catch one or more of several species of salmon and trout.
Fishing Waters at our Alaska Fishing Lodge
Our fishing lodge in Alaska is located specifically outside of Petersburg, Alaska in Wrangell Narrows on the island of Kupreanof.
You will be fishing the beautiful waters of the Alaskan Inland Seaway, which include Ducan Canal, Frederick Sound, Wrangell Narrows and Sumner Straights.
The trip will provide you with the opportunity to catch the fish of your dreams. King Salmon, Coho Salmon, Pink Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Chum Salmon and Halibut are readily available. Rivers and streams provide the fly fisherman an opportunity to fish for salmon, arctic char and cutthroat trout.
