Talstar Lodge sits on the shores of the Talachulitna River in Southcentral Alaska. The Talachulitna River passes just south of the beautiful Alaska Range. The river runs for 33 miles before it joins the Skwentna River. This is Rainbow Trout country, and this world-class fishery can be accessed through the Talstar Lodge.
The lodge is a series of backwoods cabins that sleep between three and five guests. Cabins are equipped with twin beds, linens, and flush toilets. There is hot water for showering too. The main lodge is where guests gather for meals and to tell stories about the one that got away.
Fishing with Talstar Lodge
Fishermen are advised to pay attention to the time of year and the fish run calendars when making reservations.
The Chinook or King Salmon make an appearance beginning in mid-June. Chinook are easiest to catch with a spinning reel and spinning lure.
The Sockeye Salmon or Red Salmon hit the water by mid- to late June.
The Chum and Pink Salmon arrive during the third and fourth week of July. Pink Salmon only spawn on during the even numbered years.
Silver or Coho Salmon show up in August and then peak. Silver salmon are awesome sports fish because they fight like crazy. Expect a hard strike followed by a wild ride. These fish breach the water and display amazing aerial techniques.
Rainbow Trout are present year round, but during the King Salmon run they become aggressive eaters. These beautiful speckled fish follow the Kings gobbling up stay salmon roe.
The Arctic Grayling pair with the Silver Salmon and you can target Grayling in the 14-18 inch range. The Char follow the Silver Salmon so if you are fishing for Silvers, you can also target Char. The Char are good fighters, and they come close to rivaling the Silvers in fighting.
