Stephan Lake Lodge is a mountain lodge located in the Talkeetna Mountains and along the shores of Stephan Lake. This is a fly fishing paradise and as such offers outstanding fishing for Rainbow Trout, Dolly Varden, Arctic Grayling, Chinook Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, and Silver Salmon. The Lodge sits 140 air miles from Anchorage and offers guests a casual and comfortable place to enjoy fishing in Alaska. Guests are housed in the main lodge or a series of rustic cabins. Expect your stay to be warm, comfortable and relaxing. The food here is excellent especially the blueberry hotcakes.

Fishing with Stephan Lake Lodge

The fishing season at Stephan Lake begins the first week of June. This is the time to bust out the fly rod and target some of the best fly fish available. For the month of June Rainbow Trout, Arctic Grayling, Lake Trout, and Dolly Varden in peak run. A 13-pound lake trout was caught here. The first salmon to show up is the King Salmon, which arrives the second week of July and lasts through the first week of August. The Silver Salmon show up in the third week of July and last through the first week of September. This is a rare occurrence where you can fish for both Kings and Silvers in a freshwater environment. Kings are huge, and Silvers offer an amazing fight. It is the best of both worlds. The Sockeye or Red Salmon show up the first week of August and stick around through the second week of September. This is one of the last true frontiers for fly fishing. If you want to experience the sport as it was meant to be experienced then this is the lodge to visit.
