    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.
