Nestled in the foothills of the Alaska Range, Talaheim Lodge lies 80 miles west of Anchorage and 50 miles from the nearest road. Located on the Talachulitna River, one of the first hook-and-release Alaska trout fisheries in the state, it’s a prime location for a remote Alaska fly-in fishing lodge. Massachusetts native and forester Mark Miller pitched a tent at this site in 1974, naming it Talaheim Lodge. Mark now has 34 years of experience flying and fishing Alaska’s wilderness, and the tent is now a luxurious facility with modern appliances, solar powered electricity, a private airstrip, two helicopters, and a professional staff. With the owners’ children on the staff, the family atmosphere is palpable. Half of the bookings at this cozy getaway are repeat clientele.
Talaheim Lodge is the only Alaska fishing lodge that owns two helicopters for their guest’s exclusive use
Sockeyes are a lovely metallic green when first arrive in the area, but turn pink as they enter fresh water, and are in great condition when they reach Talaheim. Pinks enter the Talachulitna in large numbers. These aggressive fellows will attack any correctly-presented lure or fly. No matter your fishing method, you can expect to catch a lot of these during your outings. Chum Salmon follow close behind the Alaska Pink run. With their vertical stripes, large teeth, and fierce strikes, these fish have earned the nickname “Tiger Salmon”. Silver Salmon are very popular with fly fishermen. The Talachulitna is also crowded with Rainbow Trout for you to catch and release; dozens of them can be caught daily. One guest has even described them as “fat as footballs”. Grayling are aggressive top water feeders that are easy to catch, making them a great target for anglers of all levels. While the famed Northern Pike don’t enter the Talachulitna, they can be found in abundance in nearby lakes.
Personal service in a wilderness environment only exists in small numbers
Expert Alaska fishing guides lead guests to streams rarely ever fished by other anglers.
