Wild country, big fish and opportunities for solitude make for the fishing experience of a lifetime.
With more than 3,000 rivers, 3 million lakes and 6,640 miles of coastline, Alaska takes the old saying "so much water, so little time" to a whole new level. Steelhead in the coastal streams of Alaska’s Southeast Panhandle, salmon and trophy rainbow trout in remote Bristol Bay waters, halibut in Prince William Sound, and sail-finned grayling in the Yukon and beyond — Alaska is big country with big fish.
Much of Alaska is also remote, with fishing accessible only by boat or float plane. One major launch point is Dillingham, a town of 2,500 on Bristol Bay — called the "Salmon Factory of the World" for its prolific runs of five species of salmon, including the largest wild sockeye runs in the world. Several remote rivers thread inland from Bristol Bay to large lakes and networks of smaller streams that teem with spawning salmon as well as rainbow trout, grayling and more. Outfitters based in Dillingham maintain cabins and temporary camps in the backcountry, serving up gourmet food and campfire camaraderie in addition to spectacular fishing.
The main season around Dillingham runs June through September, when daylight stretches toward midnight. June kicks off the runs of sockeye, chum and legendary king salmon. August brings the cohos and pinks. A variety of flies and spinning tackle are effective. Fishing for rainbows is summer-long, and offers good opportunities for fly-fishing with dries, nymphs and streamers. To the uninitiated, these big rainbows can be mistaken for salmon!
If you're after even bigger fish, head for the saltwater. Charter a boat out of Seward or one of the many other port towns, bait your hook and be prepared to hang on tight — a "big" halibut starts at 100 pounds. Anglers have been known to pull in 300-pound-plus halibut. Salmon can also be taken at sea.
Catch and release is always a good option. But eating fish is a part of everyday life in Alaska, and it's easy to pack a cooler of delicious salmon or halibut for the trip home.

Bristol Bay Lodge
Founded in 1972, Bristol Bay Lodge sits on a wooded rise overlooking Lake Aleknagik and the surrounding mountains of Wood-TikChik Park. The lodge presides over a quiet scenic bay some 40 air miles northwest of the small, remote town of Dillingham, 300 miles west of the nearest connecting northwest road system. Catering to up to 26 guests per week who desire the finest freshwater angling available, the lodge's well-appointed facility offers casually elegant wilderness living filled with creature comforts and an atmosphere of camaraderie. The main lodge houses our completely equipped professional kitchen, the dining room, our large living room with bar area, the library and a huge fly tying bench laden with everything one needs to tie quality flies suited to the surrounding rivers. The famous see-through fireplace is fronted by a panoramic view of Lake Aleknagik. We have eight bedrooms in the main lodge as well as a fully equipped fly and tackle shop. Our guests can arrive with nothing but a waterproof jacket and be fully outfitted. In warm weather the lodge's decks are the favorite gathering places for appetizers, cocktails and weekly barbecues. The hot tub and sauna get lots of use after fishing - relaxing sore muscles. Set around the lodge, but private in every regard, are four cedar cabins, often used for small groups or families. Each cabin is different offering its own character, yet all offer scenic views of Lake Aleknagik, slightly fragrant with the scent of cedar as you would expect of true wilderness cabins. Although we believe Bristol Bay Lodge to be among the finest, if not the finest, Alaskan lodges, there is no question that is a claim that could be made by others. Equally, there can be no argument that Alaska has some of the finest and most productive fishing on the planet; we are lucky enough to enjoy a piece of it. Where we are totally unique is in providing the opportunity for our guests to enjoy two intimate, comfortable (recently upgraded) outpost camps on what amounts to very rare private water. Imagine just four guests, or six from time to time if an intact group, enjoying the comfort of a private camp on private water with incredible fishing. You can fish all night under the midnight sun or just enjoy sitting around the campfire in the middle of nowhere but with a full staff and full communications in case of emergency. It does not get better than this and this is what Bristol Bay Lodge, with its international experience in remote operations, do best. Guests fish other rivers during the day, rotate into one of the outpost camps at about 5 pm, spend 24 hours there, then return to the lodge the following evening. Bristol Bay Lodge maintains exclusive leases on the two most exceptional river fisheries in all of the Bristol Bay Region. Northwest of the lodge is Birch Creek Camp. Directly west of the lodge is Rainbo Camp, located on the tidewater/confluence of two exceptional rivers. This overnight experience is often what is remembered as one of the highlights in a trip of a lifetime. To describe these outpost camps as just great fishing would be to ignore what is possibly the best overall wilderness experience in Alaska today. Picture yourself witnessing phenomenal scenery and wildlife below as you come in to land on the pond that services the camp facilities. Once landed, your guides will take hold of the airplane's guide ropes and smoothly tail it up on shore. You unload and spend a few minutes chatting with the outgoing group about the spectacular fishing they have experienced just that day. You take a moment to look around at the stunning beauty and the serenity inherent in all of remote Alaska, then continue to the camp thinking about the amazing fishing you have already experienced that day while day dreaming about the fishing to come. You turn just in time to see the pilot lift off the water, bank and turn away from you and across a cloudless blue sky; the smile on your face is one of anticipation. You arrive at the intimate camp perched on the banks of the river and begin to chat with th...
Alaska's Boardwalk Lodge
Thorne Bay, AK
Alaska's Boardwalk Lodge is an oceanfront resort located on breathtaking Prince of Wales Island in temperate southeast Alaska. Construction of the main lodge began in 1990, where each log was felled and towed across the bay. In true Alaskan spirit, the raw lumber was milled, peeled and notched by hand. Expansion of the resort entailed the building of a second lodge, providing accommodations for up to 19 guests. The lodge takes its name from the 300-yard boardwalk, stretching from the boat docks and spanning the tidal inlet to the lodges. The resort is accessible via a 35-minute floatplane ride from Ketchikan, Alaska. However, floatplane rides usually end therethere's no need for a fly-out on the island to fish.

Our personalized adventure trips include short 1-3 day overnight float trips, day-long wilderness jet boat excursions, daily walk-ins by 4-wheel drive or ATV, and fly-ins with our own aircraft. As seasoned anglers, we understand most fisherman, schooled or novice, crave not just a great day of angling, but a remote experience full of amazement and memories. Our mission is to access wilderness waters often overlooked by others and place you in a backwoods angling environment surrounded by our awe-inspiring valley. Come join us.
