Waters Edge Lodge sits along the shores of Chichagof Island in beautiful Elfin Cove. This is an all-inclusive resort that offers the beauty of Tongass National Forest from nearly all sides. Here, you gain access to fish-rich waters that offer plenty of Salmon, Halibut, and Rockfish fishing to the guests of the lodge.

Self-Guided Fishing with Waters Edge Lodge

The waters here are calm and tranquil and all of the fishing here is self-guided. The waters here a full of Salmon, Halibut, and Rockfish. Guests are oriented to boats and fishing so that they can enjoy a world-class fishing trip in full safety and still target the big Trophy Fish.

When you fish with Elfin Cove you have access to big King Salmon which range from 20-40 pounds and sometimes even larger. The Chum Salmon are also large and generally from 15-35 pounds. Silvers are the wild fish with the most acrobatics and range from 5-20 pounds and sometimes larger. The Pinks are the smallest of the salmon and range from 3-6 pounds. They are also the most numerous.

You also have plenty of access to Halibut, both those above 100 pounds and those below. One of the most overlooked fishing groups in Alaska is the Rockfish. Both Salmon and Halibut feet on smaller schooling fish such as herring. So do Rockfish and in these quiet waters, they grow quite large. Big Ling Cod, Snapper, Bass, and Goldie-eyes are plentiful.

Overall, expect great fishing, good boats, and a warm and hospitable stay.

The Waters Edge Lodge

The lodge is series of buildings that sit above the water on a pier. Expect comfortable and country-style lodging with plenty of comfortable sitting areas, chef prepared meals, TV, and extra amenities all surrounded by wood floors, pine walls, and beautiful vistas.

Rooms are generally complete with a pair of double beds, native-inspired art, and views. Expect plenty of comforts, many of the same features you'd find at home. The dining is chef prepared and features gourmet foods from local, fresh-caught salmon to prime rib and smoked pulled pork. Expect plenty of food in a warm and friendly dining area.
