Alaskan Silver (Coho) Salmon are the holy grail of fly and spin fishing to fishermen around the world. 

They jump and leap and spin and run hard right when you hook them and put up one of the best fights you’ll ever have on a fly or spin rod.

Our Alaskan Silvers are commonly 12-15 pounds with 20 pound monster Silvers being landed every season.

We fish private waters from right in front of our lodge to several private rivers where no others will be fishing except for our guests.

True alaskan backcountry fly-fishing adventure! Once in a lifetime experience!!

Interesting Facts You Might Not Know:

  • The record Silver Salmon caught was 26 lbs - caught in 1976 by Andrew Robbins while fishing the Icy Straight.

  • A female deposits 2400 to 4500 eggs during spawning season.

  • One 1/2 pound filet of Silver Salmon has 289 calories, 42.8 grams of protein, 11.7 grams of fat, 2.4 grams of saturated fat and 91 mgs of sodium.

It’s not uncommon for our anglers to lose count of how many of these beauties they release every day. Most fishing will be done on our private river access and other remote places. If you want to break from the combat fishing many experience in other parts of Alaska, we have the fishing experience for you. You will not see any fishermen from any other lodges while staying with us. Less fishermen = more fish! 

A typical day at the lodge (All times are approximate)

Wake up and meet in the main lodge for coffee, home cooked breakfast, and talk about where we might fish that day.

Gear up and load up. 

Depending on where we want to fish we will jump on the boat, 4-wheelers, plane, or Hagglund All Terrain Personnel and Equipment Carrier and head to our private fishing location.

Fish all day! We won't see any other fisherman but you will see plenty of fish & wildlife.

Return to Lodge                                                                                                                                       Get back to the lodge, relax by an open fire, have a beer or glass of wine or maybe you want to fish in front of the lodge while the staff unloads, processes the daily catch and preps for dinner. It is your time to enjoy and unwind.

Take a hot shower and meet us in the main lodge for dinner & drinks and rest up to start it all again tomorrow!
