Alaska Fishing Lodge – Fishermen’s Inn

When it comes to an Alaska Fishing Lodge, Fishermen’s Inn is truly for the outdoorsman in all of us. Flight seeing, hiking in some of Alaska’s finest and remote scenery, and a large variety of fishing is waiting for the visitor to Fishermen’s Inn. Fly-fishing in particular is a big part of the experience, as there are wilderness lakes and wild streams that are made available by Forest Service Special Permit.

For thirty years Fishermen’s Inn has treated its visitors to it’s own special blend of hospitality. Fresh cooked meals, Select Comfort beds, covered decks, washer and dryer, satellite TV, a hot tub, fishing license, and even fishing gear are included. What is hard to believe is that this all comes from a remote location with no roads. You are flown in from Sitka, Alaska, on a 45-minute flight to Fishermen’s Inn Port Alexander. When you arrive, life in the city dissolves, as you begin to enjoy a variety of fishing. Rainbow and cutthroat trout, salmon, and other types of fishing are all available. No matter if you are wishing to do some fly-fishing or enjoy saltwater fishing, it is available from one location at this Alaska Fishing Lodge.

If you wish to do some saltwater fishing, guided tours with Chatam Strait Charters can line up a great trip for you. Halibut, salmon, lingcod, and rockfish are some of the fishing you can enjoy. A nice feature to this trip is that the first 100 pounds of fish you catch will be processed, vacuum-packed, frozen, and boxed for you to take home. If you happen to catch more, you can take that home too for a nominal fee.

If you wish to experience more of the outdoors, there are 2-person kayaks for you to use. The lagoon at Fishermen’s Inn provides some excellent scenery and wildlife abounds for the camera buff. As mentioned, Fishermen’s Inn has Special Use Permits from the US Forest Service and that opens the opportunity for you to go places filled with fish. Even better are the streams and lakes you can access with this permit, that allow you to see parts of Alaska that you normally might see in books or movies. It is all part of the charm of having no road access.

Starting with the floatplane trip and through the extent of your stay, Fishermen’s Inn provides you an Alaska Fishing Lodge trip you will never forget. Just pack your clothes and camera, because the rest is all part of the package. Alaska, as it was meant to be experienced.
