Surrounded by the Tongass National Forests, Lisianski Inlet Lodge offers guests the best of Southeastern Alaskan fishing. The lodge is nicely situated between Sitka and Juneau and offers a pristine adventure with the wilderness of the Tongass National Forest looming behind and the waters of the Pacific in front. This is a haven for fishermen.

The lodge features four bedrooms, with two private baths, and a shared bath between two of the rooms. The room setup features a queen and twin bed and offers an excellent vacation for families. Maximum number of guests is eight. Expect a warm and hospitable environment with plenty of home cooked food.

Fishing the Southeast and Lisianski Inlet

The local waters are fish-rich. This is a saltwater fishing lodge with an outstanding focus on fishing for Salmon and Halibut. The Southeastern part of Alaska is home to the big, barn-door Halibut. The record for Halibut caught by sports fishermen is just shy of 500 pounds. Halibut can weigh twice that amount. This is an awesome area for Salmon too. The calm inlets offer prime feeding grounds for salmon before they begin to transform for their freshwater migration.

Guest enjoy guided fishing on the lodge's charter boat, and the guides take you where the fish are. That is the beautiful part to fishing with experts -- they know where the fish are. What you catch is processed by the staff at Lisianski Lodge, vacuumed pack and frozen for you in wet boxes. Expect to take home between 100-150 pounds of frozen fish.

Fishing Species at Lisianski Inlet Lodge

The primary targets are Alaskan Halibut, Sockeye Salmon, and Silver Salmon. The other species are equally fun to fish with a spinner rod or via a fly rod. The big Lingcod offer guests a fun challenge. These long, lean predators are monstrous and offer plenty of fight. Other Rockfish include Rock Cod, Yellow Eye, Black Bass, Sea Bass and other Rockfish. All of these are great eating. Lingcod is a blue fleshed fish and is just amazing fried. The cods offer excellent table fare and work wonderfully in the smoker.

Freshwater Fishing at Lisianski Lodge

There are opportunities to hit the freshwater rivers and tributaries. Try your hand at fly fishing or enjoy the sport with a spin casting pole. Targets include Sockeye Salmon, Silver Salmon or Dolly Varden. Dolly Varden are often confused with Rainbow Trout, but they are in fact, char not trout. They offer plenty of fight, and a good sized Dolly Varden can easily weigh over 12 pounds.

Lisianski Inlet Lodge is reachable by boat. Guests fly into Juneau and then fly over to the town of Pelican, which is about two miles away, where guests are greeted by the lodge. The quiet, beautiful lodge and setting offers guests a relaxing time and plenty of fishing opportunities.

  • NOT a fishing lodge - it?s a B & B. You live with the family in their very old house. A tremendous amount of nonstop drama with the family members, old/unreliable fishing gear, no privacy, no desire...
