Overview

AlpenView Wilderness Lodge is a full-service Kodiak Island lodge that offers the best Alaska fishing lodging in the area. It is remote, accessible only by sea or air. Our services include everything a visitor will need to make the best of their visit to Kodiak Island. Lodging, food, equipment, transportation and fully guided activities are all provided. We feature some of the best saltwater fishing, freshwater fishing and fly fishing in Alaska. Halibut, king salmon, steelhead and silver salmon are all part of the target list.

The rivers of Kodiak Island are very well suited to the sport of fly fishing. In contrast to many rivers in Alaska, they are relatively small, easily waded, and clear. A fly fisherman of moderate skill can present the fly to the fish at any point in these rivers. The fish are abundant and the circumstances forgiving so the beginning fly fishermen can get into the action while sharpening their skills. The wide variety of fish, fishing areas, and useable techniques will keep the most experienced fly fishermen entertained.

Details

Arrival and departure days are Saturday and Wednesday. Outbound, your seaplane flight will leave Kodiak at 9:00 AM. You should plan to be available in Kodiak, either at your hotel lobby or the airport lobby with your bags packed and ready to go, no later than 8:00 AM on the day your trip begins. Note: A combination of car/boat may be used instead of a seaplane for lodge trips. Homebound you will depart AlpenView’s facility at 11:00 AM and arrive in Kodiak at noon. As flights are quite often delayed due to weather, it’s best not to plan departures from Kodiak until mid-afternoon.

Remember that Kodiak Island is a very remote location and travel here may be quite different than it is where you live. Please leave yourself as much time as possible when booking your transfers into and out
of Kodiak.

It is very important not to over pack. You will be traveling in small float planes so it is necessary to limit each person to 75 lbs. of gear.
