The Elfin Cove Resort is just that a fishing resort with a lot to offer guests. Elfin cove sits on the Northwest side of Chichagof Island. The area is a haven for Halibut and Salmon fishing, but the resort also offers easy access to incredible beach combing, kayaking, zipline adventures, and hiking. Expect to see an abundance of wildlife including octopus, eagles, sea lions, whales, and hummingbirds.

The lodge is newly renovated and is a conglomerate of four buildings. The main lodge holds five guest rooms, the kitchen, and the common areas with billiards, TV, and movies. The Chalet offers two guests rooms plus a nicely equipped living area. The beach house is larger with three guest rooms, living room, and a hot tub. The big building is the Fishmaster's Inn which is four stories and holds six guest rooms, kitchen and dining area. Overall, expect to find clean and comfortable quarters with enough room for solo travelers or small groups of guests. The lodge is ideal for fishing groups, families, couples, and corporate groups.

Fishing with Elfin Cove Resort

This is Southeast Alaska and the fish here tend to be large. Guests come for the outstanding Halibut fishing and are hooked on the availability of Salmon, big Bottom Fish, and even trout fishing in the local streams.

The Halibut here range from 20-300 pounds and are available all season long. The King Salmon are common from 20-60 pounds and are best fished from early May through the last part of June. The Coho or Silver Salmon are pure sportsfishing at its best. The Silver's peak in late June and run through September. Expect Silvers in the 8-12 pound range. Chum Salmon, also known as Dog Salmon are feisty like the Silvers and they range from 8-20 pounds. Pink Salmon and Sockeye Salmon range from 4-6 for the Pinks and 5-8 for the Sockeye. The Rock Fish here are big. Guests enjoy fishing for 20 pound Ling Cod, Big Red Snapper, Yellow eye, and Black Sea Bass, which are perfect to target with a fly rod.

If you want a variety of activities and a lot of different fish to target, then Elfin Cove Resort has exactly what you need.
