Angler's Alibi

Angler's Alibi

World Class Fly-Fishing on the Alagnak River | Remote Fly-In Fishing Camp

38 Reviews - TripAdvisor® Traveler Rating
6 - 7 Days: $4,000 to $5,000 Per Person
4 - 5 Days: $3,000 to $4,000 Per Person
Angler's Alibi is a rustic, yet comfortable, fishing camp on the Alagnak River in the famous Bristol Bay watershed, 23 miles North of King Salmon. This cozy camp is just outside the Katmai National Park boundary, over 250 miles from the nearest highway. Its location on the tidewater section of the Alagnak River means that you don't even need to leave camp to find amazing fishing. No fly-outs means you can spend more time on the river than at other lodges. Or, fly-out to Moraine Creek, Funnel Creek, and other fantastic fishing holes to say you were there. The near 90% guest return rate at Angler's Alibi offers evidence of its excellence.

Talaheim Lodge

Talaheim Lodge

6 - 7 Days: $9,000+ Per Person
4 - 5 Days: $4,000 to $5,000 Per Person
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.
Featured Package


With over forty years in business, Talaheim Lodge is known throughout the world as a premiere fly fishing destination and is the only lodge in Alaska that owns two helicopters for our guest's exclusive use. Located 80 miles west of Anchorage, surrounded by nothing but a valley of mountains, we fish streams rarely seen by other anglers. By limiting guests to only 8 fishermen per week, we ensure that everyone deserves the top notch service and attention to detail that a once in a lifetime experience deserves.

Most of our rivers are wade-able and perfect for fishermen that like to cast across small rivers in search for that perfect catch. But if you need a break from wading, no problem. Our portable blow-up canoes offer that flexibility - you can choose to walk the river in part, or not at all. With a helicopter as your means of transportation, you are free to follow the fish, whether that be for three miles or just 300 feet. We'll pick you up wherever you end up. Within a 15-minute helicopter flight from Talaheim, we have access to over 100 miles of great fishing waters. Tributaries that are so remote that if you see a foot print, it was likely your guides from the week prior.

Whether you're an avid fly fisherman looking to hook one of our famous Rainbow Trout, or a novice angler after an Alaskan King, Sockeye, or Silver salmon, see why Talaheim Fishing Lodge has been the anglers choice for over forty years.

No See Um Lodge

No See Um Lodge

World Renowned Alaska Fishing Lodge, Unforgettable Experience - It’s one of the last truly pristine wilderness areas left in the world. Endless miles of crystal clear rivers teeming with wild rainbow trout and huge chinook salmon.

76 Reviews - TripAdvisor® Traveler Rating
6 - 7 Days: $9,000+ Per Person
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 a hot tub with river view, sauna, daily housekeeping, on demand hot water, 24/7electricity, and WiFi throughout the property. The main lodge has satellite TV, 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,…
Featured Package


Fishing is what we do. For over 40 years we have been flying and guiding anglers throughout Bristol Bay. There are a few other lodges that can boast that many years but none that have fine-tuned the operation like No See Um. At a maximum of twelve guests per week, our fleet of three DeHavilland Beavers goes out with a maximum of four anglers and is committed to those anglers all day. We don't drop and go back for more as is the case with most lodges. This ratio of guests to aircraft also allows for the greatest flexibility in the industry. We have the ability to fish more than one location in a day and always have the option to "head in for cocktails" if the weather or an emergency pushes the issue. On days that weather doesn't allow for safe flight, we have the option to use boats to access our home water, the Kvichak River.

Imagine over 20 million acres of wilderness with no roads, very few people and the largest populations of wild rainbow trout, pacific salmon and bears on the planet. This is our playground. Since 1975, No See Um has been consistently striving to be not the biggest, but the best fishing lodge in Alaska. Our 7 day trips include flexible and customized fishing program, fly-outs, lodging, all meals and drinks, round-trip airfare from Anchorage to the lodge, daily housekeeping, and all lodge amenities. While it's all about the fishing, our goal is to give you a complete experience. When you are at the lodge you can enjoy our hot tub or sauna, both are always hot! There is beer on tap, horse shoe pits, a screened in gazebo with fire pit, and fishing in front of the lodge. We want your trip to be the adventure of a lifetime.

Double-occupancy rates are $11,000 per week/person from Anchorage
Single-occupancy rates are $12,500 per week/person from Anchorage

Featured Packages


A self-guided float trip through the Alaskan wilderness on a large inflatable raft. These are easy flowing rivers with the purpose of the trip being fishing (not whitewater rafting). Which of our nine rivers you choose will depend on the species of fish you want to catch and the time of year. All of our unguided packages are designed for our guests to bring/supply as little as possible. In a nutshell.....you provide food, sleeping bag, and personal/fishing gear....we take care of the rest.

Prices for unguided trips include all bush flying and airport pick-ups and transportation around Aniak, rafts and camping gear. Contact Us for more information on our unguided float trips!


Trips run Monday through Saturday include guided fishing, round trip transporation from Aniak, lodging, food and one bush flyout for up to 6 people.
Imagine the wonderful fishing you will experience by having an experienced guide, an airplane at your beck and call and some of the finest fishing rivers in the world for an entire week!

Aniak Air Guides' lodge sits on the outskirts of the village of Aniak, at the confluence of The Aniak & Kuskokwim Rivers (see location page). Being right in the heart of the 3 most productive fisheries in western/southwest Alaska ( the Yukon, Kuskokwim, and Bristol Bay Drainages), gives us a unique advantage to access, and choose from so many wonderful and productive fisheries.

Local waters commonly yield 20-30 salmon per day!....not too mention all the rainbows, arctic char, dolly varden, & arctic grayling. King and chum salmon are the first to arrive.... starting their run by the village in mid June and culminating by the end of July. Aggressive silvers typically show in late July, and hit all the way thru mid-Sept. Reds and pinks are sprinkled in from late June thru early August. Rainbow Trout fishing is second to none, starting in mid-June, with hot fishing all the way in to September. Arctic char, dolly varden, and arctic grayling are also caught in abundance until mid-September.

Our guests will stay in a tent camp on the lower Alagnak river hosted by professional guides and targeting primarily fresh sea-run salmon. There is a possibility for Rainbow Camps near the Lake Outlets early season in June as well. Like our lodge based packages you will arrive on Sunday, fish Monday through Saturday and depart on the following Sunday. Your meals are included, and your help around camp is expected.


If you are more in tune with nature and would rather spend your days floating down river on a raft, evenings setting up camp and sleeping in tent under the stars, then our float trip package is right up your ally. You will be dropped off with your guide at the source of the river and picked up miles downstream 7 days later. You will be expected to help with the setting up and breaking down of camp each day as well as other daily chores.
