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.

Contact us to learn more about this incredible experience!


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.

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.

The No See Um Lodge sits along the fish-rich waters of the Kvichak River in the South Central part of Alaska.

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
