Orca Adventure Lodge sits on the head of Orca Inlet on beautiful Prince William Sound in Cordova, Alaska. Lodge offers 40 guest rooms, each with a private bathroom in what was once the Orca Cannery. The lodge also offers remote cabins for groups ranging from 2-12 guests. Some venues offer guided fishing, while others offer only self-guided fishing adventures. Whether you choose to stay at the lodge on Orca Inlet or if you prefer to stay at one of the remote cabins, there is a full list of options available for you.

Freshwater Adventures

Set up your fishing trip when you book your stay. You have the option of reserving a guided adventure or a DIY adventure. That is one of the pluses for lodging with Orac Adventures Lodge. If you opt to guided adventures, your party, and guides, head out via boats to your fishing destination. One reason, to use a guide, is that they know the local area, and they are familiar with the best fishing practices.

There are plenty of local streams and rivers that are accessible by boat. Expect to fish for King Salmon, Silver Salmon, Pink Salmon and Rainbow Trout. Those are the most common requests for fishing adventures. The kings show up and peak in June. The Silvers peak in August. The Pinks and Reds show up mid-summer and peak through July and August. The Rainbow Trout are around all season long. The kings are the largest of the five species of Pacific Salmon and can weigh 20-50 pounds. A trophy King weighs over 100 pounds. The Silvers are the true sports fish. They are highly acrobatic, and they put up quite a fight. The Pinks are smaller but plentiful. They spawn only on the even numbered years. If you can fish for Red Salmon, the Sockeye, do it. When they are in the rivers they come by the millions. You might consider a fly out trip for Sockeye fishing.

Saltwater Adventures

There is plenty to fish for when it comes to saltwater adventures. The local sea is rich with fish. The rockfish are fun. Those are the cods and bass. Black bass is an excellent smoking fish. There is also lingcod, which is not a cod at all. This is a long, lean predator fish with a huge mouth and can weight 70-80 pounds for trophy sized fish. The Halibut is what most people want to fish. Those can be monstrous too. Bard door Halibut can weigh over 1000 pounds. For sports fishing, you will be hooked with any bard door over 100 pounds. The little ones they call chickens. Halibut is best fished using a guide and chum. A big Halibut requires multiple hands to land. If you are interested in fishing for trophies, let the lodge know. They offer a trophy saltwater trip.

Other Activities

There is plenty to do in Alaska. The Child's Glacier Adventure allows you to visit a glacier up close. If you are lucky, you might get to see the massive ice slabs calf into the ocean where they become ice burgs. If you enjoy hiking the copper river delta offers an excellent guided road tour and hike. You can also enjoy wildlife viewing such as sea otters and quite possibly ocras. There are plenty of opportunities for bear viewing and wildlife photography. You can also enjoy the local waters with a guided sea kayaking adventure. The Orca Adventure Lodge is the place to find a wonderful Alaskan adventure.
