The No See Um Lodge sits along the fish-rich waters of the Kvichak River in the South Central part of Alaska. The location of the lodge was chosen because it sits nearly equal distances between several fisheries that offer guests some of the best opportunity for landing trophy fish. No See Um Lodge is all about the entire experience. They offer top guides, pilots and a staff that knows how to make you feel comfortable and who attend all of your needs. Features include daily housekeeping, 24 hour hot water and electricity. The main lodge has TV and wireless internet, but the best treat might just be their well stocked Pro-Shop. The fishing here is intense, which is why the staff focuses on your entire experience. The cabins and rooms are well furnished with quality. The decor is upscale wilderness chic, and the feeling is that of home.

Fishing the Kvichak River for Trophy Fish

The fishing here is primarily fly fishing with an emphasis on trophy Rainbow Trout but the fish-rich waters of the surrounding fisheries offer guests their choice of game fish. The guides are very capable, and you can adjust the focus of your fishing day from one species to another. The Salmon runs vary, but you have an opportunity to catch Trophy Rainbows, all five species of Salmon as well as Arctic Grayling, Arctic Char, Lake Trout and Northern Pike.

Guests are flown out to pristine fishing spots that are all located within 30 minutes.

The Guides, Hosts, and the Adventure

The Lodge was built in 1975 by Jack Holmen, now retired but still a big part of your experience here. His son John Holman now owns and runs the lodge as both a pilot and as an expert fishing guide. His wife Kari manages the lodge and John. The guides are amazingly skilled. Chris is a pilot and guide and has decades of experience flying and guiding. Coast Guard Captain Caleb is half fish himself. He has fished pretty much his entire life. Dave is the newest guide and brings 20+ years of fishing and fly fishing experience to Alaska and its guests. Melissa is in charge of guest services. She is an avid fisherman, hunter and wildlife biologist. You are in the best hands at No See Um Lodge.

The lodge has three float planes and an industrial grade jet boat. They also host fishing boats on nearby rivers so that guests can take advantage of salmon fishing. The overall experience here exudes fly fishing for the massive Rainbow Trout found within the region. The experience of the guides is one of the key factors that makes No See Um Lodge a five-star fishing vacation. If you are planning an Alaskan Fishing Adventure, check out the No See Um Lodge.
