Keep reading as we give you a few tips that will ensure that the planning process goes smoothly.  

Book in Advance

The number one rule when planning your Alaskan getaway is booking your trip far in advance for the Alaska fishing season. While you may think that booking six months to a year ahead of time won’t be necessary, there’s a lot to consider in the planning process. Booking in advance allows you to make the appropriate flight arrangements and will ensure that you have a spot for the best Alaska fishing season of the year. Since many anglers enjoy Alaska fishing during the King Salmon season, you’ll want to reserve your spot early! 

Budget is Everything

While searching for Alaska fishing resorts, knowing your budget ahead of time plays a huge role in selecting your Alaska fishing destination. Most Alaska fishing resorts will cost you at least $4,000, and that only includes a three-day trip. Our incredible rates will cost you far less and will consist of a seven day trip with five and a half days of fishing. Imagine how much more fish you could catch during the Alaska fishing season if you had more time to do it. Check out our Rates page to see our weekly specials and everything included in the cost. 

Destination Location

Island Point Lodge is located on Kupreanof Island and is nestled along the shores of the Alaskan Inland Seaway.

Since we’re located on the coast, you’ll have incredible landscape views throughout your stay, along with guaranteed wildlife sightings. While Northern Alaska is full of hundreds of streams, Southeast Alaska offers large rivers that are teeming with fish.
