Featured Packages


The location of our 6-10 day trips is Western Alaska. Western Alaska is truly remote, very little evidence of humanity or other fisherman. The rivers we operate on don't have lodges clogged with jet boat traffic We fly into either Bethel or Dillingham via Alaska Air which departs multiple times a day from Anchorage. From there guests and guides board bush planes either on wheels or floats to head to one of many rivers in the vast area.

We target all 5 species of Pacific Salmon, mouse eating Leopard Rainbows, beautifully finned Arctic Grayling, brilliantly colored Dolly Varden, and Arctic Char. On all FishHound trips guests enjoy a 2 to one ratio (one guide two clients). Guests also enjoy our move-able "lodge", a large cook tent and dining area that can seat 8 and provide stream side views while being out of the elements. Clients have their own sleeping tents complete with cots and insulated down pads. Other than fishing clients are only responsible for packing up their personal gear, FishHound staff takes care of everything else.

We run heli-fishing on multiple rivers throughout south-central Alaska, which is easily accessible from the Anchorage area.

We offer single day heli-fishing trips as well as 2 thru 6 multi-day float fishing trips . This type of trip provides an amazing remote Alaskan river experience with much more ease than some of the further location we operate on. This is a perfect trip for folks who want a wilderness trip/experience but don't want to spend their whole time in Alaska in one remote location.

Most trips depart from the beautiful town of Talkeetna in the shadow of Denali. Denali provides an amazing view as you are flown out to some of the most phenomenal fishing in Alaska. Depending on the time of year we target all 5 species of Pacific Salmon. Huge bruiser Rainbow Trout are always present as well as Arctic Grayling and Dolly Varden.

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.
