Alaskan Wilderness Outfitting is located along the Tsiu River and sits about 100 miles to the southwest of the town of Cordova, Alaska. This is a lodge that is only accessible by plane. This is also home to Alaska's best Silver Salmon River. While many people target King Salmon, you will never get a King to fight you with as much tenacity as Silver Salmon Have.

Guests are housed in cottages that are more like four and five-star bungalows. Expect private bathrooms with walk-in showers, comfortable beds, and separate living rooms with plush furniture. The main lodge has a fly tying table, a large dining room with a bar, and plenty of places to lounge in comfort.

Fishing with Alaskan Wilderness Outfitting

The Tsiu River is a meandering river with narrow channels connected to riffles. The large flat runs are shallow and make for excellent places to fish for Silver Salmon. Near the headwaters, the fishing is intense. The narrow mouth affords the best advantage to the fishermen. Even in the tidal area, the fishing is good.

Silver Salmon are known as the Acrobats of the Salmon family. They are fierce fighters, and that is what makes them such a wonderful fish to target. They are tenacious and angry fish. They don't just strike the line; they strike it hard as though they want to rip the pole from your grasp. Once the hook is set, the real battle begins. These fish will tail walk across the channel. They breach and twist trying to get away. Give them the slightest bit of slack line and they will roll in an attempt to snap it. Yep, these are the sports fish of the Salmon world.

  • Wonderful do it yourself adventures with solitude, a ride in a sweet old DH-2 beaver to a luxury cabin in a secluded slice of heaven. Very knowledgeable and friendly hosts, Tom and Katie will give you a bucket list adventure. One of the best trips of my life in the middle of covid.

  • I have done 5 trips over years, mainly the floating cabin. Great people to deal with. On one trip fog kept them from flying us out. They hired a boat to do the transfer rather than have us miss a day. Extremely beautiful area. Good choice for a great vacation.
