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.
