75 Reviews - TripAdvisor® Traveler Rating

Features include a hot tub with river view, sauna, daily housekeeping, on demand hot water, 24/7electricity, and WiFi throughout the property.

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

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.
