When it comes to an Alaska Fishing Lodge, Fishermen’s Inn truly is for the nature lover in all of us. Aerial viewing, hiking in some of Alaska’s best and most remote scenery, and a wide variety of fishing activities await the visitor to the Fishermen’s Inn. Fly fishing in particular is a big part of the experience, as there are wild lakes and wild streams that are available with a Special Permit from the Forest Service.
For thirty years, the Fishermen’s Inn has treated its visitors with its own special blend of hospitality. Included are freshly prepared meals, Select Comfort beds, covered lanais, washer and dryer, satellite TV, hot tub, fishing license, and even fishing gear. What’s hard to believe is that all of this comes from a remote location with no roads. You’ll arrive from Sitka, Alaska on a 45-minute flight to Fishermen’s Inn Port Alexander. When you arrive, city life dissolves and you begin to enjoy a variety of fishing. You can catch rainbow and cutthroat trout, salmon and other types of fish. No matter if you want to fly fish or enjoy saltwater fishing, it’s available from one location at this Alaska Fishing Lodge.
If you want to fish in salt water, guided tours with Chatam Strait Charters can offer you a great trip. Halibut, salmon, long cod, and rockfish are some of the fish you can enjoy. A nice feature of this trip is that the first 100 pounds of fish you catch will be processed, vacuum packed, frozen, and boxed for you to take home. If you catch more, you can also take it home for a nominal fee.
If you want to experience more of the outdoors, there are 2-person kayaks for your use. The lagoon at Fishermen’s Inn offers excellent scenery and wildlife abounds for the camera aficionado. As mentioned, the Fishermen’s Inn has special use permits from the US Forest Service and that opens up the opportunity for you to go to places full of fish. Even better are the streams and lakes you can access with this permit, which allow you to see parts of Alaska you might normally see in books or movies. It’s all part of the charm of not having road access.
Beginning with the seaplane ride and for the duration of your stay, Fishermen’s Inn provides you with a trip to Alaska Fishing Lodge you’ll never forget. Just pack your clothes and your camera, because the rest is part of the package. Alaska, as it was meant to be experienced.
