Island Point Lodge is situated on the "Inside Passage" of the forest, which is home to a variety of unique wildlife and an abundance of fish in Alaska, including halibut and the five species of salmon. The region also features orcas, wolves, otters, beavers, bald eagles, brown bears, among many others, all of which may be spotted on your Alaska fishing trip.
