Aleknagik Island Lodge is a fisherman's dream come true. The lodge sits on a private five-acre island in the Tikchik region of Bristol Bay near the fabled Wood River. The lodge holds a maximum of ten guests per week and hosts Mike and Debby create a welcoming environment where you feel at home.

Fishing with Aleknagik Island Lodge

Fishermen are transported to the best fishing locations within the Wood River Drainage system via jet boats. Here you can target any of the five species of Pacific Salmon, depending on when you arrive. The early part of the season is good for King Salmon and Sockeye Salmon. The mid-season run sees a reduction in Kings and an increase in Sockeye and Chum Salmon. The late season is all about Silver Salmon and a few stragglers for Chum. Throughout the fishing season, there is an opportunity for good-sized Rainbow Trout.

Expect to fish on some of the best Rivers that Alaska has to offer. The Nushagak River is one such river, and this is a place where trophy King Salmon are likely to strike your line. The annual run of Kings on the Nush is upwards of 220,000 fish.

When they say this is a fishing paradise, they are not telling fish stories. This is one of the most prolific areas for fishing in all of Alaska. The lodge is very comfortable, and the food here is outstanding. This is also one of the cheaper lodges, especially when you consider where you are and the fishing opportunities that abound.

  • Island Lodge in Aleknagik is a fisherman's paradise! It is easy to get to, yet very remote which translates to an affordable world-class fishing experience. All of the fish species Alaska is famous for are teaming in the waters around the lodge. Salmon, Char, Grayling, Rainbow Trout, and even Northern Pike. I've fished many of these rivers before but never from such a comfortable lodge.
